Has won on heavy, though the majority of his 10 career wins have been when conditions haven't been quite as deep. Has shown he is still capable of raising his game this season, and has at least each-way claims again here.
Thriving as he gets older, having earned two of his four chase wins this season, the latest at Newcastle from just 2lb lower. Sees out 3m1f on soft, so has possibilities here, but not sure which Rock On Fruity will turn up.
Jockey has often said that this is his favourite ride, and they have combined for three of the gelding's five career successes. Stays very well, usually jumps well, and is back on his last winning mark. Acts on any ground. Not ruled out.
Has won three times on heavy, and is just 2lb higher than when doing so at Ayr (3m) a year ago. Has since won there over hurdles and run well over fences. Cheekpieces may help him pull out a bit more. Claims.
Last win came on heavy at Ayr (3m) two years ago, when 1lb lower. Has run well numerous times in defeat since then and can certainly give him claims from this mark if at his best.
Got off the mark at the 10th attempt over fences when scoring at Ffos Las (3m, heavy) in November. Went up a huge 17lb for that, but that didn't stop him being sent off favourite when held at Exeter (3m6f) last time. More needed.
