Uninspiring in two starts this term, though was largely unfancied for both of those assignments which were of a higher grade than today's contest. Should relish the return to calmer waters and this dual C&D winner is of strong interest.
Turned over as favourite (9-4F) when disappointing at Chelmsford recently (7f; standard). That run can be forgiven, and he is still unexposed. Never raced over this trip though, and doesn't look to have obvious early speed.
Been on the go since finishing last in a seven runner affair on this card twelve months ago. Form has been up and down since, but posted a respectable enough run last time out when 2nd to Fair Cop at Chepstow (5f; good).
Could not be making seasonal debut at a better time, with her trainer operating at an impressive 33% strike-rate at present. Showed a willing attitude when getting up in the dying strides to win at this track last year and has solid claims.
Won at Windsor (5f; good) on seasonal reappearance, and then ran nowhere near as well as the market vibes suggested when sent off as the 9-4F at this track at the beginning of the month. Looked laboured that day and subsequently hard to fancy.
