Form & Verdict

Has found one too good on last three starts, notably 2m4f handicap here and last month when second to a clear-cut winner over 2m at Limerick; prominent racer could well appreciate this intermediate trip and likely major player although needs to be more fluent.

Found one too good in three consecutive starts in December and January before winning by 10l at Clonmel last month; had gone up 7lb for his three seconds and now raised another 7lb, but his mark is not yet in three-figures and he is a young horse capable of making further progress.
