Form & Verdict

Improved on previous efforts when chasing home a subsequent winner on his handicap debut here (2m, soft) last month; 1lb higher and up in trip, but his dam is a half-sister to the Welsh National winner Mountainous so he shouldn't be lacking for stamina; high on the list.

Has won two of his four starts under Ben Smith, latterly coming clear in the closing stages at Ayr (2m4f, good to soft; fine on softer); impressive enough there to earn an 8lb rise but he's in top form and probably improving.
