Obvious claims on his short head second at Doncaster on comeback. Didn't run up to that on AW since but may be happier back on turf now.
Has good record at this track and emphatic winner of this race last year. Sure to come on for comeback run last month and should go close off just a 1lb higher mark than last year
Backed up his close second at Brighton with another solid effort when third at Goodwood when ridden by this jockey for the first time. Just worrying that losing run now stretches back to 2016.
Yet to fire in two runs this season but handicapper has given him a chance as he is now 2lb below his win on the July course last summer. Worth monitoring in market.
Runner up to Move In Time a year ago. Was having first run since at the minimum trip when good second at Ascot on recent comeback and that may well have been a career best run.
Busy spell in 2018 with just a Salisbury win to show for it. Rather hit and miss these days and others have stronger form claims.
Helped by good draw when running with credit to chase home a progressive type at Musselburgh. In the veteran stage but still retains plenty of ability and has to be on the short list.
Hold up performer who needs a strong pace to aim at but decent sprint handicapper when he gets the race run to suit and back down at a mark he can be competitive at.
Totally unexposed having had just the six career runs and game effort to pip Zamjar (reopposes here) at Doncaster on first run for 9 months. Entitled to improve again and respected.
