Form & Verdict
Just one win from his 13 starts but he was a good second at Newmarket (1m4f, good to firm) last September on his penultimate outing for the now-retired William Jarvis; heavy ground excuses his subsequent run; new trainer is among the winners; one of two for the yard and he could be a player.

1-13 for William Jarvis and ran respectably in this race last year; first run for new yard was improved form when he won seven-runner race at Epsom (1m2f, good) three weeks ago in good style, making all; 9lb higher today; two of his best runs last year were at 1m4f; below form when he ran once each on soft and heavy.

Second run after a break when scything through his field to win comfortably over 1m4f here in November; improved again when splitting 105 and 107-rated inmates from the Gosden stable in a 1m2f Newcastle conditions race 16 days ago; looks well treated from an unchanged mark back in a handicap.

687 days off before winning from Stressfree at Doncaster (1m2f) in March; perhaps unsuited by Epsom next time and returned to form when beaten a neck at Goodwood (made most) on latest; those two peak performances were on soft ground but he's had only seven races and it's too early to say he needs it; considered.

Smart on the Flat when trained in Germany and built upon promising hurdle debut when winning easily at Plumpton (2m, good to soft) for Milton Harris in November; disappointed in three subsequent handicap hurdles, though, and made low-key stable debut when well beaten on the Flat (albeit in a good-quality race) three weeks ago.
