Form & Verdict

Just a respectable fifth here (2m3f, soft) on recent handicap debut and needs to brush up his jumping but he remains unexposed and there are good reasons to believe that today's longer trip will unlock improvement.

Third in a 3m point in 2022 and he improved for the step up in trip when winning by 7l over C&D (soft) last week on his second handicap start; will be tough to beat under 7lb penalty if repeating that promise.

Big odds and soundly beaten on his three hurdle starts (2m3f-2m6f, soft/heavy) but has shown some ability and was third in a point-to-point in 2022; goes handicapping off a modest mark and no surprise to see a good run.
