Boasts eight wins on the AW, and normally extremely reliable, so best to ignore latest effort at Wolverhampton when caught wide throughout. Fair claims if bouncing back as expected.
Only defeat in the last year when beaten a neck by Mazzini in a C&D conditions event last time, and never out of the money on Polytrack. Sure to go well again, and the one to beat on balance.
In frame on every outing in 2018, and not disgraced when 7½L third to top-notcher Kachy over 6f at Wolverhampton recently. That run does suggest he has to improve again to figure here.
Suited by racing around a turn, and back to form when runner-up on last two starts, and no shame in being beaten 6L by Kachy at Wolverhampton last time. Holds Danzan on that form.
Excellent second in a 1m Listed race here on last domestic outing, but that came in 2017, and he made little impact in Meydan early last year. Has since left Jeremy Noseda, and likely to find this trip too sharp on return from absence.
