Form & Verdict
Three wins when trained by Brett Johnson, including 5f on fast turf; close third at Chelmsford (visored first time; left off today) when last seen in February; looks on a good mark starting out for a new stable (same owner) and he has the pace to make use of the inside stall; Rossa Ryan booked; lots to like.
