On a career high mark but the way he's returned to action with a win on the AW and good second at Ripon on his third start suggests there's still plenty more to come.
Unlucky when a fast finishing third on just his second start since a wind operation. Just 1lb higher and looks ahead of the handicapper however ideally would want some give in the ground.
Gets some welcome relief from handicapper and now just 1lb higher than last winning mark but last two runs have been below par and needs to find something extra.
Generally consistent and ran a decent fifth on the AW over 7f in March, Better back at this trip but just the one win so far and needs everything to drop right.
Probably prefers some juice in the ground but will be fitter for two runs back. Given an aggressive ride last time and can be competitive with touch more restraint.
Generally raced on softer ground but has handled this surface in the past. Beaten favourite last time on second start since arriving from Ireland but possibly needed a stronger pace to aim at and a definite chance.
Back on his last winning mark but bit to find on recent efforts and winning form has generally come on a soft surface.
Needs to step up on AW form from the end of last year but does handle these conditions and now makes new stable debut.
Dropping quickly in the weights but still little sign of a revival despite being on a technically dangerous mark. Best watched at present.
Generally consistent and still below his last winning mark. However that was his sole success and although he should run his race, he may find a couple too good once again.
Has handled these conditions in the past but seemed to appreciate switch back to AW last start. 2lb rise not insurmountable though and should be competitive.
On a good mark 15lb lower than his last win and entitled to improve for recent seasonal reappearance. However best form has been with give in the ground.
Well beaten on last two starts for John Oxx and now first run for new yard. Best watched with stable struggling for winners.
Blinkers back on after cheekpieces tried last start. Just 1lb higher than last win and should be fitter for two runs back but would appreciate rain.
Never figured on first run for new stable which was well below form and best watched based on that.
Best form has come at the minimum distance and needs to improve on recent runs.
