A three-time winner in 2017; kicking off those gains from a 9lb lower mark over C&D in May. Slowly working back to somewhere nearer his best form, but still beaten 7L when finishing third at Carlisle (1m3f) earlier this month.
C&D winner in April (33/1) who has generally run to a similar level of form since despite edging up the weights. Finished just in behind Mutadaffeq at Carlisle latest and the hood is now applied; stays well.
Won twice over this trip at Lingfield (AW) earlier in the year, but is win-less on turf after four attempts; albeit this is a slightly weaker level of handicap to his early season Epsom/Ascot efforts.
Made all to record a second career win over an extended 1m3f at Yarmouth on his last Flat start (beaten over hurdles last week); up 6lb in a stronger race, so more on his plate.
Raced only once over today's trip when finishing last of eight at Ripon in August 2017, but worth another attempt from a sliding mark given the level of application that he showed when winning over 1m2f at Nottingham a month earlier.
Nathaniel colt who cost €250,000 as a yearling. Shaped more encouragingly on his second start in a handicap at Redcar (1m2f) in early May when beaten just ½L by Nibras Galaxy; up 2lb and in trip.
Finished in the frame on all three starts in maiden company last month (7.5f to 1m3.5f). Makes her handicap debut from a fair looking opening mark (albeit not easy to gauge the worth of her earlier form); fool-hardy to overlook in a modest race.
