Three from five and likely to improve with age for this stable. Ran to a consistent level in three runs last season and was tried in Group company and a handicap at a higher level. Seems to go particularly well fresh and suited by quick conditions.
Nice winner at Ripon on second run back and not disgraced in a competitive handicap last time. Should remain competitive off this mark but possibly better suited by an easier surface.
Ran right up to his best on the AW last time and should only improve for the step back up to this distance. Stable won this two years ago and should be a leading contender.
Progressed nicely last season and seems to handle any ground but it was a disappointing reappearance albeit in a strong handicap. Down in grade but probably best watched in another competitive race.
Zetland Gold Cup winner off this mark last year but was well beaten on reappearance in this year's renewal and he's now been tailed off on his last four starts. Hard to recommend in first time visor.
Now 3lb below last winning mark and interesting now dropped to this trip and returned to a preferred quicker surface. Looks one for the shortlist.
This ground and distance are seemingly ideal for him but followed a win with a below par effort last time and probably weighted to his best.
