Best effort for this yard came when finishing runner-up over 6f here in December but he hasn't kicked on in three subsequent starts. Steps up to 1m for the first time with plenty still to prove, though mark continues to fall.

Still a maiden but a good third in a handicap over 7f here last month off a higher mark. Well below that form twice since over 7f, including in different headgear last time, but dangerous to dismiss back over 1m despite wide draw.

One-time Luca Cumani lesser-light who finally took advantage of a tumbling mark when scoring at the 14th attempt over C&D last month, defeating Mette (runs 12.40pm) by 1¼L. Only raised 2lb, should remain competitive.

Went close on occasions for Richard Fahey without managing a win but looks to have regressed since joining this yard for 8,000 guineas last autumn. Beaten too far at Wolverhampton last time to merit serious consideration.

Two wins in 18 starts, his latest success coming at Wolverhampton off a higher mark than this. Has been knocking on the door of late with successive third-place finishes over 1m and he looks short-list material.

Winner of six races, but on a losing streak which now exceeds a year following another moderate effort last time out over 1m2f. Mark is falling but others look more persuasive on balance despite plum draw.

Took advantage of a mark of 45 to romp home at Bath (1m) this summer for a fifth career win but his AW record reads 1-24. Noted keeping on when beaten 4L over 7f at Kempton latest, so return to 1m should suit.

Highlight of her modest nine-race career so far is her second to Tyrsal over a much longer trip at Leicester in the summer. She hasn't kicked on, however, and this drop in trip doesn't appear of obvious benefit.

Maiden after 15 races, never as much as reaching a place in that time. Reasonable effort over 1m4f here latest, so interesting to see her drop in trip with cheekpieces introduced.

Unfancied and well beaten in three 1m maidens and it was a similar story on her handicap debut over 6f at Kempton. May do better back over a longer trip but others much more convincing.

Verdict

Presence Process has only been penalised 2lb for defying stall 10 in a similar event over C&D last month and, given a much more favourable draw, he looks sure to be competitive once again. For all that, preference is for LORD MURPHY who has been knocking at the door in this headgear combination of late and yet remains 2lb lower than when winning at Wolverhampton last spring. Cloud Nine looks the most interesting of the remainder.
