17:30 Goodwood Thu 24 May 2018
Not won since his second start back in 2015 and losing run now stands at 22. Well beaten last time out and hard to fancy on all known form.
Has won twice on AW already this year but only has a maiden win at Salisbury to his name in 14 turf starts. Still feasibly handicapped after another good effort last time and turf win did come on fast ground. Not discounted.
Usually gives a good account at Chepstow, as was the case when bouncing back to form with a placed effort last time. Off a lower mark here with the step up to 6f a positive.
6f on fast ground would appear to be his optimum trip and due to go up 3lb when new mark kicks in after a fine effort in defeat at Chepstow last week. Leading player if he returns in the same form here.
Got his head back in front at Brighton last time, following up a promising effort at Lingfield in March. Still well-handicapped on old form and has won over C&D before. Plenty to like about his chance.
Not won on turf since 2015 and returned with a below-par effort at Bath last month. On a career low mark but his consistency makes him hard to fancy.
Not won on turf since 2014 but he's been running well on AW this winter and he was only beaten 3L on return to turf last time out. Claims if he can build on that now.
Inconsistent sort but did win twice last year. Seen to best effect when ridden prominently and a chance he will get that here so not dismissed.
