C&D scorer on soft in 2017, when 7lb higher. Losing run now at 19 since then. Respectable effort on stable debut at Naas last month, but beaten 4L there and more needed to end his losing run.
All wins have been over 6f/7f with good in the going description. Was beaten 1½L into fifth when 2lb higher at Doncaster in March. Below par latest, but has enough form to suggest he can go very close here.
Scored here over 5f (soft) last season, when 3lb lower. Has previously gone very close over C&D. May have needed his reappearance at Dundalk last month, but will need to improve on his best to win this.
Seems to enjoy himself most at Ayr, and of course he pulled off a great win in the Stewards' Cup Consolation Race at Goodwood last summer. 5lb lower here, and not ruled out.
Dual C&D winner this time last year, and improved again to win over 7f at Ayr in August. Has gone backwards since, however, and is now 5lb lower than that win. Support would make him interesting, but otherwise probably one to watch.
