Sole turf win came on good at Naas (5f) in September, when with Johnny Murtagh. Has already won on the AW for this trainer and best forgiven recent Chester run with ground/track possibly against her.
Finished eighth of nine in Ripon race (5f, good; 9-1) won by Mark's Choice recently on stable debut. Entitled to be fitter this time and should at least close that gap.
Ripon scorer last month over 5f on good-ground, though that win is flanked by two poor efforts. Not the most reliable and perhaps high enough in the weights for now.
Stepped up on seasonal debut when winning by a head over 5f at Beverley (good) earlier this month. Carries an additional 5lb for that score and entitled to have designs on going well once more.
Lightly-raced but has presumably been hard to train with breaks in between runs. Stable now banging in the winners and chances of leaving 7f Musselburgh reappearance well behind if handling this 5f trip.
Ended last season with a win over 5f at Musselburgh from 2lb higher, though two poor runs to begin the new term over 6f at Newcastle (AW) and Pontefract do leave him with questions to answer.
Scored at Musselburgh (5f, good to firm) in September (only win from 10 starts) and didn't run badly there on reappearance (only second run since). Twice tailed off in as many previous visits here, which is concerning.
