Form & Verdict
Never threatened but was placed in two slow-ground maidens last season (2m4f/2m3f) and an 8l defeat in latest handicap at Huntingdon (2m3f, good to soft) was quite encouraging; stamina for this far shouldn't be an issue.

Came good at the third time of asking in handicaps when seeing out the step up to 3m well on the better ground at Southwell (good) last month; 6lb rise looks manageable but more of a concern would be the drop back in distance around this sharper track; respected nonetheless.
