Form & Verdict

Seemed too green to do himself justice on his first three starts last winter but there was some improvement in a close keeping-on fourth of seven here (9.4f) in May; the cheekpieces he wore then are on again; shapes as if he'll stay this far and may not have reached his ceiling just yet.
