Verdict

There may well be more to come from Mister Universum and he has done plenty already to suggest he is capable of extending his run of good form. However, this is still a stiff test for him at the weights and there is a significant enough case to give RECKLESS BEHAVIOR a speculative throw of the dice in his bid to get one over on his old rival. Flashing Glance has hinted at ability and jockey bookings alone say he'll attract his fair share of interest...even though he has improvement to find.
