Winner of four races from 35 starts but disappointing so far this season. Races off a mark 11lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Course winner over 1m on good-to-soft ground last July but disappointing in the main since including in two starts this term.
Not beaten far when finishing fourth over C&D on good-to-firm ground last time out. Similar underfoot conditions forecast and one to note despite a 1lb rise in the weights.
Finished fourth twice this season most recently when beaten 6L here last month. Held at Wetherby (1m, good-to-firm) since and more needed if he's to take this contest.
Beaten 2L when finishing fifth over C&D last time out. Dropped 1lb for that effort and is an interesting runner on this occasion.
Catterick course specialist and put a disappointing effort behind him when finishing fourth at over 7f at that venue last time. Interesting contender on this occasion.
Winner on the AW in France and ran well when finishing runner-up in a novice contest at Catterick (7f, good-to-firm) on debut for this yard last month. One to note switched to handicaps.
Dual winner on turf including on soft ground over 1m at Chepstow last September. Held on two starts since joining this yard however including when encountering trouble in running over C&D last time. Likely to fare better here.
Placed on three of his five starts so far this season most recently on the AW at Chelmsford at the end of last month. Likely to run his race once more.
Good effort in finishing fourth on soft ground at Wetherby (7f) in April. Well beaten twice since however and would appreciate any overnight rain.
