Form & Verdict

Had dropped a long way in the weights prior to winning over C&D in October (5lb lower); step up to 1m2f was no real excuse next time but he's a strong traveller and could be interesting back at 7f, a trip he's not tried since his debut.

Just one win to his name thus far but he continues to leave the impression there's a bigger effort around the corner; possible 7f will prove his optimum but he stays this far and first-time blinkers could unlock his potential; more interesting than many.

Progressive type; winning for the third time in four runs when getting on top towards the finish at Sandown (7f, good to soft) in August, and he had an excuse there (ran without hind shoes) on his latest start; probably just as effective at 6f (made a winning reappearance over the trip) and may not have reached his ceiling just yet; interesting.
