Successful over C&D off 12lb higher last summer; a lot of his runs since joining this yard have been over much shorter trips and he offered encouragement for this return to 1m6f when staying on for fourth over 1m4f at Southwell; needs considering.

Form & Verdict

Placed on first four starts this year, including third to Black Smoke (runs in first division) over C&D last month; more to his latest 2m Southwell flop than simply lack of stamina but his overall record provides hope he can bounce back.
