Has won five of his six AW starts, latterly at Kempton in November. Behind Festival Of Ages and Watersmeet at Newcastle last time, however, so has a bit to find.
Scored over 1m6f on turf in October and was runner-up in a handicap off a big weight on only AW start at Kempton. Promising and unexposed, but is tackling some talented rivals.
Had Watersmeet, Alfredo and Golden Wolf behind when runner-up in quite a hot contest at Newcastle last month. Lightly raced and ought to confirm the form with improvement on the cards
Seemed to run out of stamina when finishing behind three of these rivals at Newcastle. Has plenty to find on that evidence, but a first-time tongue tie may help.
Grand campaigner who scored over 2m at Kempton before finishing fourth at Newcastle, two places behind Festival Of Ages. Likely to run his race again in a bid to repeat last year's success, but no obvious reason why he should turn the tables.
Two wins from four starts on the AW and bolted up over 1m6f at Chelmsford last month. Had previously scored at this venue and is an improving type who should not be dismissed lightly.
