Form & Verdict

Dubawi half-brother to some useful winners; 9-4 favourite for maiden at York (1m, soft) eight weeks ago, flat-footed before coming from the rear to take third of seven; withdrawn after getting upset in the stalls on an intended outing at Newcastle in November but looks a sure-fire improver if those antics were a one-off; the longer trip should suit.

Useful pedigree; upset in stalls (withdrawn) once last November and mounted in chute on latest outing; fair form on soft on debut; made most and rallied well to justify favouritism at Wolverhampton (9.4f, AW) in December and ran creditably when fourth of five in novice at Kempton (1m3f, AW) last month; blinkers are enlisted; needs to resume improvement for this handicap debut but can't be ruled out.
