Had been dropping hints that a win might not be far away and delivered that promise at Windsor last time, well backed to do so and was well on top at the finish. Penalty to carry here but conditions fine and every chance of the follow-up.
His mark is already starting to fall very quickly after some moderate efforts and he weakened out of things too quickly for comfort at Salisbury last time. Better ground may help but far too much to prove at present.
Two better efforts since going into handicaps, came home well for second over this trip at Lingfield (losing a shoe in the process) and then fourth over a longer trip at Bath. Progressing and chance of hitting the frame here.
Fairly exposed already, seems a bit one-paced whatever the trip but worth a try at this distance given another staying-on effort over 10f here last time out. Not really progressing though, and on balance, others make more appeal.
Turned in his best effort to date when fourth to Seinsational at Windsor last time, running on again late after getting outpaced. 6lb better with the winner here and a clear passage would help, but that one may have his measure again.
Had looked to be going nowhere fast until second over this C&D last time out (and some money for her suggested that a better run was forthcoming). Upped in trip again, which asks a new question, but may have more to offer.
Sent off big prices all starts and has done no better since going handicapping, thrashed out of sight at Bath last time. Cheekpieces given a go now but they need to have a major effect if she's to have any chance.
Had looked very moderate until taking a huge step up in trip at Lingfield last time and ran a much better race in finishing second, beaten half a length. Seems to have now found his trip and as such, could easily go on from that.
Goes into handicaps on a basement mark and looks worth a go at this trip given she was staying on over 10f at Leicester last time, but that was only a moderate seller and she will need to improve again. Others preferred.
