Form & Verdict

Lightly raced 4yo who has form figures of 2211 since switched to this track for Tony Carroll; up another 3lb but he landed the odds in good style over 1m6f here last time and is open to more progress on this step back up in trip; big player.

Dual-purpose performer who is 1-27 on the Flat but he's reached the frame here (1m4f/1m6f) in his last three runs; remains well treated on his old form and has possibilities if he's unfazed by this switch to 2m.
