Twice a novice stakes winner last season but yet to really show himself a force in handicaps. Handicap falls again here but not seen enough to suggest him off this mark.
A winner on debut at Kempton who ran well penultimately at Salisbury. Not disgraced in warm York handicap at Dante meeting and with an ease in grade here he will likely be far more competitive.
Back from a gelding operation when making a winning start to his 3yo campaign at Musselburgh (7f, good). Perhaps found out over 1m latest when fourth but flatter track here means he's worth another go, bold bid expected.
Twice fourth last season and reappeared when going one better and very much looking like wanting further over 7f at Lingfield. With that in mind he is an interesting runner from a red-hot top yard on handicap debut.
Similar form when third in first three starts at around 7f before one paced fifth on 1m handicap bow at Kempton. Gelded over the winter but will have to have improved on evidence so far.
Bidding to break a frustrating sequence of second places; 1lb higher than when finishing 1½L runner up to Prince of Harts on handicap debut at Wolverhampton (1m+) 51-days ago; others preferred now he makes his turf debut.
Ran well at Carlisle in second of four two-year-old races but disappointed after including handicap bow at Pontefract. Gelded over the winter but big step forward now needed.
