Form & Verdict

Tends to race too freely but seemed to respond well to first-time blinkers when winning off reduced mark at Southwell (7f) last month; ought to have been suited by the return to 1m when very disappointing joint-favourite here two weeks ago but no surprise if he bounces back quickly.

Can race freely but has responded well to blinkers, winning two of his three starts in this headgear (all on AW); up 7lb for the latest but that was quite decisive from off the pace and this could also be run to suit; 1m with cut underfoot is fine.
