Form & Verdict

Two C&D wins, the latest in a classified event during January; has continued in form since and there isn't much between him and Madame Fenella on their 5f Southwell form 11 days ago; no shoo-in at the weights but has more obvious claims than many.

Has developed a good relationship with William Pyle and he made it two C&D wins from his last five starts when narrowly landing a handicap here a fortnight ago; just 2lb higher today and he's a solid candidate.

Has gone close in 5f classifieds on Tapeta this year, including over C&D, but he hasn't been at his best of late and replacing blinkers (back on today) with a visor didn't pay off last week; looks unlikely.

Latest AW wins came over 5f at Southwell in January 2023; was well treated at the start of 2024 but he's crept back up the weights for some close calls, including over C&D, and his latest Southwell run wasn't his best.
