Went close at York (6f, soft) last month, when 3lb lower. Acts on good, though would ideally prefer it slower than this. Tough task from this mark.
5lb higher than when scoring in a 0-95 at York (5f, good) last month. Has run well from 1lb higher in both starts since and has to be taken very seriously.
Best efforts and all but one of his six wins have been over 6f. 1lb lower than when last winning, at York 13-months ago. Ran well in visor on first try two starts ago, so if it has similar effect he can't be ruled out.
Prolific winner over this trip. Better on AW, but now 2lb lower than his last turf win in April and with 7lb claimed he would have to have at least an each-way chance.
Without a win for over two years, but showed at Leicester last time that he still has it in him. Same mark today and can't rule him out if in the same mood.
Triple winner over this trip and little to choose between he and Mirza when both finished in the frame at Leicester last time. That was an improved effort, so he may have more to come. Claims.
Not as good as he was when scoring over C&D last year in a conditions event, when rated 107. Tackled Group company earlier in season prior to a second wind op, but has not convinced since. Cheekpieces now tried.
