Recently bought from Richard Hughes for 5,000 gns. Without a win in 2018 when Southwell second on penultimate starts was his best effort.
Sole win was after a break at Sandown in June 2017 but often the subject of support and interesting that connections persevere with him after a troubled season last term and blinkers now tried.
Had a good spell at Pontefract last summer but AW form is not so good and has shown nothing in two runs this year.
Front runner who has been a multiple winner in the past but struggling for form of late and not hard to look elsewhere.
Too free in a small field on latest but 7f here is his perfect scenario and far better than shown there with a decent pace on the cards. Likely to bounce back and play a prominent role.
Front runner who does all his winning on Turf and still to break his duck in 12 previous runs on the AW. Others preferred.
C&D win in June though form just tailed off on last few runs.. Chance on best form but needs to hit the ground running on first run since August.
Last Year's Winner
Call Me Grumpy (11/8), Dark Alliance (2/1), Gabrial The Tiger (9/2), Critical Thinking (7/1), Mr Minerals (12/1), Showdance Kid (14/1), Malaspina (20/1), Highly Sprung (40/1)
