Sole win came at Lingfield (1m2f, soft) in August, though he would have gone closer with a clear run when fifth of 11 over C&D (first-time blnkers) 13 days ago; hasn't had many goes on the AW and respected down another 1lb.

Form & Verdict

Could hardly have been more impressive when winning an amateur riders' event at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) a week ago, ending a 48-race losing run in the process; 4lb penalty not a major issue if in the same form, but he has never attempted this far before which does pose a question.
