Promise on AW on last two starts, looking better than the bare results; thrown in judged on two AW runs last March/April and he is probably ready for this step back up in trip, with more to prove on today's surface given he tailed off in a soft-ground race last April but that preceded an eight-month absence; cheekpieces (tried once, ran okay) return and he's tongue tied for the first time; not dismissed.

Easily landed a C&D novice in December 2022; returned to Tapeta with four good efforts in a row here (1m-1m2f) in the autumn and he had an excuse when dropped back to 7f last month; record now stands at 1-11 but he has possibilities if he can bounce back near best.

Form & Verdict

Ploughed through the mud to win the Spring Mile at Doncaster last April off an 8lb higher mark; struggled afterwards and he begins this campaign off a much-reduced mark, one that is unlikely to see him get in at Doncaster later in the month; unplaced in all five AW runs so there are risks despite the drop in class.

Reached the frame in the first two of his three runs (7f/1m) for Charlie Hills last spring and he was only beaten around 2l when fifth on his stable debut at Kempton (equipment added; RPR 76) last week; stayed on well after running into some trouble in that race and that form puts him firmly in the picture.
