Form & Verdict

His 6f form includes a success at Newcastle; gelded prior to keeping-on fifth here most recently, leaving the impression he's ready for a crack at further; out of a 7f winner and looks interesting upped in trip.

Made it 2-6 when winning a Wolverhampton handicap (7f) in December and he did well to go close from off the pace in a tactical race at Lingfield last time; on same mark here and he's a key player.

Off the mark at the second attempt when landing a 6f novice here in October; runner-up in his next four starts (6f/7f) and he wasn't beaten far when fifth at Newcastle last month; needs to find a bit extra but he still has potential and is respected back up in trip.

Justified favouritism in C&D maiden last month, opening his account at the sixth attempt without needing to improve; faces a harder task on handicap debut but has proved mostly consistent, which bodes well.
