17:10 Brighton Mon 17 September 2018
Placed over 7f on good ground here last month. Well held on a soft surface over an extended 7f at Chester subsequently however. Has won here in the past.
Recorded a second career success when winning over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton earlier this month. Has to defy a 5lb rise for that victory if he's to take this contest.
Winner over 1m at Ascot (good-to-firm) in July. Fair efforts in two subsequent outings and making his debut for this yard.
Running well in defeat in recent starts including when finishing third over 1m at Salisbury (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting off the same mark.
Eight race maiden was beaten 2L into third in a 1m handicap at Bath (firm) in May. Placed over this C&D prior to that and is having his first start since wind surgery.
Victorious over C&D on good going last month. Good second over 7f at Sandown (good-to-soft) ten days later and one to note despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
Won and placed over 6f here last year. Absent since finishing down the field in a valuable 5f contest at Newbury (soft) nearly 14 months ago. Debuting for a new yard with blinkers tried for the first time.
Finished third off this mark over C&D on good-to-firm ground last time out. Similar conditions forecast and is one to note in this contest.
Impressed when winning by 3L over C&D on good-to-firm ground earlier this month. Finished runner-up back here subsequently and is a leading player despite racing from out of the handicap.
