Form & Verdict

Plenty of promise when fifth of 14 in the Convivial Maiden at York (7f, good to firm) last August and beaten just a head at Ayr (1m, good to soft) next time, but a bit disappointing when a well-held fourth of 11 at Newmarket (1m, good to firm) in October; still sets a useful standard on AW debut after 136 days off.

Best effort when fourth of 11 at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) last month, but he has twice been well held at the same track (1m/7f) since; may be open to improvement now handicapping and pedigree suggests the longer trip should suit; worth a second look.
