- 5f 212y, Good (Good to Firm in places)

- Surface: Turf
Successful at Wolverhampton over this trip in March and has won in the Channel Islands since. Penalised for that latest success and is one to note in this contest.
Victorious over 5f at Pontefract (good-to-soft) last month but held off this 5lb higher mark subsequently. Return to 6f no issue in this contest.
Finished a close fourth over this trip at Newcastle last time out. Races off his 7lb higher turf mark here and he is an interesting runner in this contest.
Winner of a claimer over 5f here last October and run well in a couple of AW handicaps subsequently. Worth a check in the market on seasonal debut.
Well held over 5f on his return to action at Beverley (good) last month. Probably best watched in this contest.
Victorious over 5f at Wolverhampton in March and placed in claiming company subsequently. Disappointed last time out and making his first turf appearance in over ten months in this.
Just touched off in a 6f handicap at Southwell in March. Held since including over 5f at Beverley (good) last time.
Finished a close fourth over 5f at Newcastle in March. Fair effort over the same C&D subsequently and interesting to see how he fares on this occasion.
Making his seasonal debut when finishing well beaten over 5f at Beverley (good) last time. Likely to have improved for the run and worth a check in the market.
