Triple winner on turf, including over this trip, for David Lanigan. Looked to have retained his ability in just one run for Jamie Osborne, but resumes after 13-months off for a new trainer. Each-way claims if he can overcome this latest absence.
Scored over this trip on Tapeta in 2016. Was entitled to need his reappearance last time after a 29-month absence. That showed that he retains ability, and he is of interest if taking to Polytrack on his first try.
Completed a protracted hat-trick when scoring for a second time at Newcastle (1m2f) last month. Ran another good race after a 6lb rise back there over 1m4½f last time. Remains unexposed, and if handling this surface, he should go very close again.
Stays 2m, but successfully dropped back this trip at Wolverhampton in November, when scoring from 2lb lower. Has run well on both starts over further since then, including here, and remains of interest back down in trip.
0-13 on AW. Was in good form on turf last summer, winning at both Salisbury and Chester over 1m6f. Has gone close over C&D and is not written off, if ready after a break, but has yet to win when fresh.
Bath and Doncaster turf wins in October showed that he can do the business, and he also appears to act on this surface. 1lb drop and application of tongue strap could bring him right into this.
