Didn't show much at Windsor last time but had previously run creditably at both Bath and Newmarket this season. Feasiby handicapped on his best form and decent apprentice claims valuable 7lb.
Not out of the first two in his last five starts, including wins at Bath in May and last time at Leicester in June. Returns from a mid-summer break off 4lb higher mark but did win here over C&D in June 2016 off 4lb higher still.
Done most of his racing at Windsor last two seasons and won there in April before being placed on both subsequent starts at the Thameside track this summer. Top apprentice claims 3lb and interesting to see how this gelding handles this unique track.
Won at Bath in June off 10lb lower mark and has gone close in each of his last three outings. May be in the handicapper's grip now and more is needed.
Failed by just a head at Yarmouth last time and presence of top jockey very much catches the eye. Han't run well here though on previous visits so on balance others are preferred.
