A winner of two from five starts including his only run on an AW surface and boasts a very progressive profile. Well backed but no disgrace with his third in a strong race at Goodwood on his return and remains one to follow with this jockey booking.
Likes to lead and was well suited by Chester before suffering a slow start at Newmarket off 7lb higher. Down a further pound and can be in the mix but will face competition for the lead again.
Front-runner who won three in a row late last year and is 2lb higher than last win in February. Remains a better horse on the AW and will appreciate the return from turf but won't get an easy lead and others open to more progress.
Won three in a row early in the year and back off a competitive mark when an unlucky second at Yarmouth. Appreciated the drop in grade and more required back in this company. Stable also run Cowboy Soldier.
Yet to produce the standard of his Newcastle AW form in two previous visits here but arrives of the back a last gasp win at Yarmouth. Should get the ideal pace again to aim at but this looks tougher off 3lb higher.
A novice winner on her third start on the turf but didn't seem to handle the Newcastle surface on her handicap and AW debut. Questions to answer on this surface and may need a stiffer test in due course.

Cowboy Soldier (4/9), Gold Filigree (4/1), Joegogo (11/1), Grandfather Tom (12/1), Wiff Waff (16/1), Sparkalex (33/1)
