- Surface: Turf
Returned from hurdling but failed to build on promise of narrow defeat when below par last time out and others preferred.
Highly progressive son of Dubawi who finished last season with a much improved win and took another big step forwards when second over C&D. Loads more to offer and looks the one to beat.
Was a bit better last time but overall profile from this season that he needs to lift his game to win this.
Won a seller over further on only start since joining Philip Hobbs and now makes debut for yet another stable. More required in this company.
Hasn't been seen on the Flat for some time but has been in decent form over hurdles. Stable could be in better form and market will provide the best guide.
First run from wind surgery and form over hurdles went backwards on last two starts. Potential back on the Flat but needs to bounce back.
First run since leaving Gary Moore and hasn't been seen on the Flat for a long time. Best watched at present.
Switched to fast ground last time and won in a career best effort. Up 6lb but no reason he shouldn't be competitive again for a stable going well.
Back to form on third run back with a good second over shorter at Beverley. Weighted to be competitive again but just question as to whether she wants this far.
Ended last season in good form but returned with a well below par performance and doesn't necessarily look well handicapped.
Has really been suited by the quicker ground on his last three starts and was an easy winner last time. Penalty shouldn't be an issue but step up to this trip remains a question on previous tries.
