Has shown ability over fences, hurdles and on the Flat and he was impressive when making all at Catterick when last seen in this sphere. Performed with credit on only previous course start and expected to go well here.
Useful performer on his day but yet to as much as place in eight AW starts and he was well beaten when last seen on the Flat at Kempton. Opposable on Fibresand debut.
Dirt winner at Meydan in 2017 and has showed a liking for this surface in two starts here, justifying strong market support last time out. Hefty rise in the weights to deal with but clearly well suited to Fibresand and should remain competitive.
Has improved markedly for the switch to Fibresand and arrives bidding for a C&D hat-trick. Only has a 6lb penalty to carry for a 7L success last time out and could be hard to beat.
Finished a long way behind Vivernus when last seen at this course and subsequently well beaten at Lingfield. Oposable in a race this competitive.
