Form & Verdict
Brother to the same owner's 6f/7f winner Razeyna (RPR 91); solid in the market at 9-2 at Doncaster (7f, good) 23 days ago and he raced prominently before showing a good attitude to come out on top; sets a useful standard under a penalty and he's a big player again in his bid to make it 2-2.

Justified support when battling well to beat a clear second at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta; 13-2) on his 2yo debut in October 2021; absent since and has a penalty on his comeback but needs a close look in the market; has been gelded.

Started his handicap career off a tough mark but he's slipped down the weights and he's run well in this grade on his last two starts, breaking his duck in a 7f event at Southwell on Monday; shapes as though this longer trip will suit but he will need to progress further to defy a penalty.
