19:10 Brighton Tue 9 July 2019
Highly promising reappearance run when third in a Class 3 at Newmarket (1m2f; good to firm) was somewhat let down when he was sixth at Kempton (1m3f; standard to slow). 2lb lower now and has bounced back from lesser runs in the past.
In poor form of late and failed to beat a single rival home in a five-runner affair at Lingfield (1m3f; good to firm) last time. Been given a short break since then but has plenty to prove on return from 47-day absence.
Travelled well and looked a live danger 2f out, but failed to find much at Newbury (1m4f; good to soft) in a higher grade. Posted a sound effort when runner-up over C&D the time before that, but again failed to find enough to get to the leader.
Back on track when displaying a willing attitude to grind out the victory at Newcastle (1m4f; standard to slow) last month. Up 3lb, but suspicion that he has plenty more to offer at this level/over this trip with yard in such good form.
