Form & Verdict

Had wind surgery for a second time before beating a big field on reappearance at Warwick (3m1f, soft) last month and he followed up at Ffos Las (3m, soft) 15 days later; raised another 6lb but he kept on pulling out more, again ridden prominently, to assert in clearcut style last time and probably has more to give.

Has gone 3-3 since further wind surgery and just kept on galloping when beating Caeruleum by just under 5l at Exeter (3m, soft); a further 6lb rise equates to a 19lb hike in all for that hat-trick but he's likeable.

Made no significant progress after winning three-runner race at Newbury (2m, good) on his hurdling debut a year ago; ran well to a point on his chase/seasonal debut at Wincanton (2m4f, soft) last month but he needs to built on that and has stamina to prove at this new trip.

Form & Verdict

Ended his time with Henry de Bromhead well out of form and there was no revival for new yard last term or on this season's reappearance after wind surgery; he is way down the weights, though, which gives him a chance on two bits of form last term.
