Form & Verdict

Has not won the races one of his ability probably should have but he did little to dispel the notion he was extremely well handicapped when rattling home for fifth at Wolverhampton last week having reared as the stalls opened; greatly respected but the draw hasn't been kind.

In line with so many from his yard he's done well this winter, overcoming a bad draw at Lingfield (5f) and producing a strong finish to land a 6f handicap back at Lingfield last month; ran well in one C&D run as a 2yo; up in the weights but has always threatened to be useful.

Looks smart on his day and although he can be the architect of his own downfall, he didn't do too much wrong at Wolverhampton 13 days ago, simply unable to peg back a winner who got first run; has won over 6f but his last 13 starts have been at 5f; too much talent to ignore at this level and he's 1-1 at Lingfield.

6f winner here as a 2yo; dropped down the weights after some modest efforts in September and took full advantage when impressing at Kempton last month (6f); another fine effort at Chelmsford two weeks ago and still looks well treated; draw could have been kinder back at 5f though.

0-12 this year but he's regularly run well, including when placed in 5f handicaps the last twice; solid efforts in all three AW starts, winning over 5f at Wolverhampton last season, and Oisin Murphy's presence in the saddle is an obvious plus; one to take seriously.

C&D winner last December; justified favouritism in emphatic fashion in a Class 5 handicap at Sandown in September (5f, good to soft) before finding 6f on slow ground stretching him when third at Goodwood one week later; 59-day absence to contend with but still likely to make a bold bid.
