Seems at his best when able to dominate as he did when winning at Catterick off a 7lb lower mark two starts back. Unable to hold on off this mark last time and is sure to give it another bold showing from the front.
Made all to win over 7f at Chester two starts back. Unable to dominate back there over 6f last time off this 2lb higher mark. Faces competition for the lead once again here and could be vulnerable.
By More Than Ready out of an AW Group winner. Only just failed to get up when making a hash of the start at Wolverhampton on handicap debut last time. Hit with a 5lb rise for not winning but clearly capable of better and a leading player.
Showed bits and pieces of ability so far but was never at the races after a slow start at Wolverhampton last time. Steps up a furlong in trip for handicap debut and market check needed.
Hit with a massive 14lb rise when running away with a handicap at Chelmsford two starts back. Well held in the follow-up bid back there last time and now switches back to turf. Drops in trip.
230,000 guineas Exceed And Excel colt related to some useful performers. Best effort so far when upped to this trip at Leicester last time, closing all the way to the line. Looks on a fair mark for handicap debut and should be more to come.
Winner on heavy ground in May but has lacked the pace to challenge on better ground since. Ran best race for a while when closing late on over 6f at Nottingham last time. Any rain would be a bonus.
Been mixing running in novice events in the UK and France so far this year but is yet to trouble the judge. This is not a bad opening mark based on the best of those runs but his form has dipped a little.
Kodiac filly that cost €28,000 as a yearling. Ran well here over 6f on second start but firmly put in her place by a potentially smart rival at Chelmsford last time. Starts life in a Nursery off a very attractive mark and should improve for 7f.
