Form & Verdict

Notched four wins on Southwell's Tapeta at the beginning of 2023; another creditable effort on AW when returning from 225 days off to finish fourth (Monkmoor Pip fifth) over C&D 17 days ago; has a good record fresh but the way he faded and lost a couple of places late on suggests he may have just needed the outing; another to consider.
