Four-time course winner (4-16) although he has yet to win over this trip; all his wins coming over 6f. Hasn't (typically) looked the easiest ride since his last time here and was far from 100% over 6f last time; headgear now removed, quirky sort.
Recent good run of form including a C&D win off a 5lb lower mark came to a end last time at Newcastle; slow away with little pace to aim at. Often starts slowly and this small-field affair could get tactical; return to form not ruled out though.
Only Fibresand virgin in the field he's yet to win a race but did look a little unlucky at Lingfield over 1m last time. Shaped well on all three runs for this yard without a race necessarily going his way; blinkers return, ran well in them before.
Four-time course winner; form over this trip is patchy though and yet to win at this trip. Not in quite the same form as when in his purple patch at the start of last year; did meet some trouble over C&D last time. Needs to produce off reduced mark.
Not won since 2014 and has obviously had some issues over the past few years although he did shape well over C&D last month. Failed to build on that last time out (ran too free) at Newcastle; still has some questions to answer.
