Remains open to plenty more on a synthetic surface with wins at Kempton at Chelmsford making it three from five on the AW. Won both times with plenty in hand and only 2lb higher. May be hard to hold out in hat-trick bid.
All four AW wins have come over this C&D but remains 2lb higher than the last of them. Come off the back of two solid placed efforts and although others may be better handicapped, can be involved again.
Sole AW win came at Chelmsford and makes course debut. Has an inconsistent profile and has a fair bit to find with Breden when a beaten favourite at Kempton. Stable also quiet at present.
Potentially well handicapped at 3lb lower than last winning mark when with Richard Hannon but form regressed for Jacqueline Coward. Market support would be interesting but best watched on stable debut.
C&D specialist who won this race two years ago but losing run now stretches back to March 2017. Back to form second at Newcastle latest and better suited by this track but this is much stronger.
Listed winner as a juvenile but hasn't won since. Not disgraced on last month's stable debut and has fallen to a fair mark but this is a sharp rise in class and looks a tough task. Non-runner here on Friday.
