Form & Verdict
16-race maiden but he made a bold bid and was only just caught over 6f at Redcar (soft) two weeks ago; nudged up 2lb for that near miss but he remains well treated on his best form and is a key player on this drop to 5f.

T: Rebecca Menzies

Won first two 5f handicaps, in April and May (soft and good to soft), including over C&D; hasn't had a great second half of the year, however, and after running better than the bare result at Ayr last month he was well adrift at Catterick since; could still go well if the mood takes.

Equally effective over 6f-7f, even though both career wins have come over today's 5f trip (Class 6); lost his way after finishing in the frame in a selling handicap at Hamilton in July, but his latest Ayr effort (ninth of 20; first-time visor) was more encouraging; 2lb above last winning mark.
