Rattled off a hat-trick towards the end of last year and returned to form with a win at Windsor last time out. Up 3lb for that run and remains to be seen whether the drop back to this trip will suit but holds leading claims if it does.
Couldn't have been more impressive when winning a four-runner contest at Newmarket by 7L last time out. That may not have been a fluke and he's a well bred sort so can't be dismissed from a 9lb higher mark in the same class of race.
Won three times last summer but hasn't been at his best in three runs this year. Not out of this if he sees this trip out but he's been well beaten in previous attempts over 1m2f.,
Won back-to-back races at the start of the turf campaign but his two recent efforts have been a fair way below par. Too bad to be true last time out and can't be entirely ruled out if he's none the worse for that run.
Won his maiden at Newmarket over 1m but very hit and miss since, as seen when failing to follow up a Wetherby win when well beaten at Beverley last time. Doesn't look entirely straightforward but can't be ruled out if he's in the right mood.
Has won three of his last four starts at Markopoulou in Greece on dirt and he was prolific when trained there. That form probably not worth a great deal but gets his regular rider and interesting to see what the market makes of him.
