Form & Verdict

Creditable fifth in this race last season (good) and he was better than ever when winning two 5f AW handicaps late last year, the second off today's mark; heavy ground may not have been ideal when close fourth of five at Goodwood a fortnight ago and he's not ruled out this afternoon.

Made all in big-field 3yo handicap over C&D (good) last September and back to form when runner-up at Epsom (5f, good) last month; another good run when third at Ripon four days later (tiring on soft ground); likes it here and can make a bold bid off a mark 3lb higher than for his course win.
