Form & Verdict

Inconsistent during a busy 2024 and still has a better strike-rate on AW than on turf; however, this drop back in grade may have positive effect, off a reduced mark.

Placed in a couple of Scottish contests (1m, soft/heavy) in 2022; absent since; similar type to Cabrillo and the betting should be a helpful guide with regard to both.
