Form & Verdict
Ran okay in two dirt runs in 2020; has since progressed into smart turf sprinter; has to prove he really wants this surface but has 11lb lower mark compared to turf and he can go well fresh.

Useful turf sprinter; off since February and tries dirt for the first time but minor encouragement for him handling it judged on his pedigree and is a strong traveller, which helps, and is with a leading stable.
