Form & Verdict

Belied odds of 33-1 on debut 11 days ago in similar Gowran contest (1m), plenty green and coming off pace to briefly go clear inside final furlong until worn down late by a 200-1 shot; this looks a stronger race but entitled to improve for that and slightly shorter trip should suit.
