Maiden after 11 starts but finished in the first three on all three outings since joining this yard. Beaten 3L over 1m here last time out and stepping up in trip today.
Sole AW success came over this trip at Chelmsford in December. Respectable effort over the same C&D last time out and has run well at this venue in the past.
Followed up a C&D win in November by finishing runner-up here the following month. Slightly disappointing when beaten 5L into sixth here last time but remains of interest today.
Placed twice over C&D prior to winning over an extended 1m1f at Wolverhampton in January. Decent effort when fifth off a 3lb higher mark subsequently and is one for the shortlist today.
Returning from over a year off when finishing a close fourth over this trip at Chelmsford last time out. Attempted to make all on that occasion and races off the same mark today.
Struggled in two starts since winning by a head over this trip at Chelmsford last month. Remains on a mark 2lb higher than for that victory and others make more appeal.
Finished third over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) in August. Successful over hurdles later that month but well beaten last of six over 2m on his only outing since at Chelmsford recently.
Victorious over C&D on his penultimate outing and put in a decent effort when finishing a close third over 1m4f here subsequently. Interesting runner in this contest.
Bidding to complete a hat-trick following C&D wins the last twice. Races off a mark 2lb higher than when winning by a nose last time out and apprentice who's been on board the last twice takes the ride once more.
Struggled in recent years including in four outings since joining this stable. Signs of a possible return to form when sixth at Wolverhampton last time and well handicapped on his old form.
All four wins have come on turf and held in both appearances since joining this yard most recently over 1m at Chelmsford last week. Probably best watched on his return to 1m2f.
