All three victories have come on the AW including over an extended 2m at Southwell on his penultimate outing. Well held at Doncaster last time and is fitted with a hood for the first time.
Had two starts since returning from well over a year off the track and ran well to finish 3L third at Wolverhampton over this trip last time out. One to note on his return to turf.
Placed in a Haydock (soft) maiden over an extended 1m3f last June. Absent since finishing sixth on the AW the following month and stepping up in trip on handicap debut.
Victorious over an extended 2m at Newcastle in September and placed twice since. Likely to have improved for last months return from a break.
Placed on the AW for Richard Hughes but struggled since joining this yard. Signs of a potential revival when 5L sixth at Thirsk (good-to-soft) on first outing since wind surgery and he is stepping up in distance for this.
Successful over 1m4f on the AW at Southwell last time out. Raised 3lb for that success and yet to prove he's as effective on turf.
All three victories have come on the AW but he failed to beat a rival home over 1m4f at Southwell last time out. Probably best watched at present.
Successful twice over this distance in 2017 and likely to have improved for her seasonal reappearance over 1m4f at Lingfield last month.
