Hadn't shown too much before springing a 33/1 surprise at Chepstow latest, but there seemed no fluke about it and the time was decent. Heavy ground clearly no issue and should stay this trip, so every chance of the follow up despite the penalty.
Really getting the hang of things now and looked the winner despite the final flight departure of the favourite at Plumpton latest. Will want fences next year but is improving quickly now, and with the ground no issue, looks a big player once again.
Loads of promise shown when fifth to high class stayer The World's End in a Chepstow bumper but that was back in April 2016 and he's not been seen since. Market will give clue as to whether he's fit today, but an interesting contender all the same.
Has shown plenty of promise in two starts and ran the useful Polydora close at Exeter last time, sticking to the task well late in the day. Drops back in trip here which shouldn't pose a problem, needs a bit more but that's not impossible.
