Risen 22lb in weights courtesy of four successive wins having been exertly placed by his handler. May still be more to come despite latest 7lb rise so looks set to run another big race.
Kept on well at Windsor last to win 1m2f handicap. Up in trip off 7lb higher mark but clearly in good heart and is entitled to respect.
Won Beverley 1m2f handicap off 70 on first start this term but has been a shade disappointing in four subsequent outings. Eased 3lb and good apprentice claims further 5lb so weighted to get involved.
Won over the stiff mile at Pontefract last month but has looked as though he needs further in two starts since. Bags of stamina on both sides of the pedgree so this big jump in trip may be a big help.
10-race ex-Richard Fahey-trained maiden who ran poorly on debut for new yard last month. Best efforts have come with some give in the ground so any rain might enhance his chance, but otherwise likely to struggle once again.
Up 2lb after going close with a gutsy effort at Sandown recently and the extra furlong and a half here might bring about a little imporvement. Remains a maiden but too early to suggest she can't win a race or two along the way.
