Form & Verdict
From the family of the stable's quality staying chaser Trabolgan; recruited for 200,000 euros after winning his point and it's unlikely that Lingfield's AW track in January played to his strengths when a clear second to last week's Aintree runner-up Tripoli Flyer; that effort was packed full of promise and he's difficult to oppose.
