Made a winning debut for this yard over 6f at Windsor (good) in May and twice run well there subsequently including when a close second on good-to-firm ground last time out. Likely to run well again here.
Finished in the frame four times already this season but disappointed at Carlisle (good-to-firm) over 6f last time out. Has run well on soft ground in the past and interesting if putting that most recent effort behind her.
Appreciated the drop in class when finishing runner-up over 6f at Hamilton (good-to-firm) last time out. Disappointed in a Class 3 contest prior to that and rated 8lb lower than when winning on soft ground at Pontefract last October.
Broke his maiden over 6f on good-to-soft ground here in October but finished last of five on good ground at Windsor on his seasonal debut earlier this month. Wears a tongue tie for the first time today.
Ran well in four maiden contests so far most recently when ½L second on good-to-soft ground at Doncaster over 6f at the start of this month. Makes his handicap debut for a yard with a 20% strike-rate of late (4/20).
Winner of his last two outings most recently at Newbury on Friday. That effort came on good-to-soft ground and he is likely to prove hard to beat given he is unpenalised for that success today.
Last Year's Winner
Dirchill (3/1), King Of Spin (3/1), Dark Power (4/1), Champagne Bob (4/1), Storm Cry (6/1), Cosmic Chatter (12/1)
- Champagne Bob
