Trying a new trip on AW debut. Both previous successes have come on stiffer tracks than this so he has plenty of questions to answer.
Has appeared to be running into form recently and she did well to get as close as she did last time as she was held up in a falsely run race
Credit to his trainer, as he has his quirks, and while he wasn't disgraced last time, he had the run of things, and his last Flat win outside of the Channel Islands was five years ago.
Scored under this rider of this mark over 1m4f at Wolverhampton in June. The second, third and fourth had their BHA ratings downgraded subsequently and he has found things a lot tougher since.
C&D winner off the track since February and whose recent record indicates he is better in lower grades than this.
Nine-race maiden tackles a new trip. That should help considerably given the way she has been staying on in recent outings.
Had been having his attitude questioned prior to opening his account over C&D in a three-runner affair in first-time blinkers. Handicapper obviously not impressed with the performance and he is in a much better race here.
Poor over hurdles on stable debut two weeks ago and he is a 17-race maiden on the Flat. His best AW effort came here over 2m but others make more appeal.
Back-to-back wins at Windsor and Brighton in June, but went up the weights and he has not looked straightforward under pressure on occasions since.
Shaped a lot better last time but he remains below his best and as a 13-race maiden he has a lot to prove.
