Looks well treated on the pick of his form; fair effort when beaten just over 2l (handicap) last March dropped down to this distance (Greyville Polytrack); makes debut for stable; needs a check in the betting as been off for a long time; unlikely to make any impact despite this looking a little easier than last time
