Likes to lead but coming from just off the pace over 6f here last time did the trick. Goes back up in trip but equally effective over this far and will be a player again under his penalty.
Reliable and solid performer on his day but these conditions are not his optimum as his likes a bit of cut. Likely to give it a good go nonetheless and a player on a going day.
This is his best trip and having dropped in the weights he went close at Doncaster three weeks ago. Nudged up 4lbs for not winning but talented riders claim negates that and leading player once again.
Unexposed three-year-old who likes to bowl along in the lead. This drop in trip and track could well suit and won't be easy to pass if getting a soft lead.
Is now 1lb lower than when successful at Newcastle back in January. Return to this trip is a positive and if they returned to forcing tactics he chances would probably improve.
