Form & Verdict

Arrives in good form, having won over 2m (heavy) at Southwell in February and over C&D (heavy) on his latest start, when he was perhaps better value than the winning margin suggests; up 7lb; likely to need a career best to follow up but that is not ruled out.

Found the odds-on favourite Bleu D'enfer too strong in maiden company at Ayr (2m3f, heavy; beaten 4.75l) four weeks ago; switches to handicapping at a realistic level, and should have more to offer as he continues to gather experience; stablemate of Cave Hill.

Consistent efforts this year, going close at this course (2m7f, heavy) most recently, when headed in the shadow of the post; 3lb rise not ideal but the drop back to this trip shouldn't be an issue.
