Form & Verdict

Gelded prior to comfortable success at Bath (1m, heavy; off 8lb lower) on seasonal debut, adding to his 2yo wins at Catterick; the only runner who has the benefit of recent match practice and has to be feared despite going right-handed for the first time.

J: Clifford Lee

T: K R Burke

Won over 7f on good to soft at Catterick in a maiden and a nursery; the concern is that he was well below form on more testing ground at Doncaster in a Listed race (soft) and nursery (heavy); gelded soon after final start; dam 7f/1m winner; player judged on best efforts.

Won at Newcastle (7f, AW) last November on third start and finished third of eight at Musselburgh (1m, good to soft) three weeks ago on his handicap and seasonal debut; he posed no threat last time but that could prove to be hot form, and he's open to improvement; unraced on good/faster ground.
