Goes well here, having won twice over shorter trips. Also acts with cut in the ground. Jumped left at times when beaten at 1-8 here last time. Up in trip now and every chance that he will stay. Has claims from this initial mark.
Dour stayer who won the Sussex National (3m4f, soft) here in 2017, when 7lb lower, as well as this season's London National (3m5f) when 9lb lower. Up 1lb for another excellent effort in the Eider last time, but needs to pull out more from this mark.
Both British wins have been over 2m5f at Fakenham. Acts on soft. Still 6lb higher than his last success. Unexposed over this trip, and shapes as though he will see it out, but still more needed based on his latest Doncaster run.
Prominent racer. Back on the same mark as his most recent win at Hereford (3m1f, soft) last year. Struggled in better company since, but step back in right direction last time. Change of headgear here, but has yet to win in any.
Last success was at the expense of Morney Wing at Fakenham (3m, heavy) last year, when 4lb higher. Has bettered that just once in 10 subsequent starts, and recent efforts have lacked encouragement.
