Has won two of his last four AW races in this grade. Out of form on last three starts but claims if cheekpieces have desired effect.
Dual Cambridgeshire winner, but yet to really threaten to make the most of a falling mark and winless in 16 starts since scoring over this trip at Doncaster in September 2015. AW record 2-7 but latest run in this grade suggests he has a lot to do.
His last two runs in this grade have brought a win (off this mark) and a short-head second. Appeared to be coming to hand last time and in form trainer applies blinkers.
Dual C&D winner this year from marks of 80 and 82 so respected under a rider who is good value for his claim.
Scored by 5L in this grade on reappearance and highly tried since. Better treated now on AW debut but stable going through a quiet spell.
Off the track since a sub-standard run in April. Closely matched with Glory Awaits on form here last winter but will need to be fully fit.
landed a modest Lingfield maiden on return and harshly raised 7lb for that effort. No surprise to see him beaten on handicap debut and trainer tries to offset the imbalance by booking top claimer.
Enjoyed a busy and successful winter when racing extensively here, including three C&D wins. May need the first run back from a break and remains on quite a high mark
Leicester winner for Richard Hannon in 2017, and not disgraced after an absence for new yard at Lingfield in July. Not progressed from that, however, and easy enough to oppose in current form.
Made the most of a drop in trip and grade to score over C&D. The form did not look strong and more to do here off higher mark in much stronger company.
