Worth overlooking his latest run as he got involved in a speed duel trying to take advantage of his draw at Chester. Previously was progressive and down in grade should be competitive.
Consistent performer on AW and had progressed nicely before being a bit below his best on last two runs. Has it to prove back on turf having been previously unplaced from four starts.
Doesn't look badly handicapped after a good second last time out in a novice contest. Has been suited by good ground since failing to act on heavy and possible this quicker ground will suit further. Looks a leading contender.
Could be more to come returned to quicker ground but best form so far has been at the minimum trip and stable struggling for winners.
Three-time winner on AW at 5f but ran his best race on the turf by a long way when second at long odds in a competitive race on fast ground. Worth another try at this distance as he hit the line strongly and this ground clearly suits.
Raced too keenly at his previous tries at this trip and has settled much better on his last three starts. Ran well switched to a quick surface when unlucky in the run last time and there should be more to come at this distance now.
Has taken a step forward in all three starts so far and appreciated the switch to front-running tactics over 7f last time. Drop back to this trip under similar tactics will suit but tough ask on handicap debut with fast ground an unkown.
Has shaped as though this fast ground is the key with him. Fourth over the C&D wasn't a bad effort last time as he needs a stronger pace to aim at and can be competitive.
