Fluffed the start at Goodwood on debut for his current trainer and that run is best forgiven; he's on a lenient mark in comparison to his AW rating and could be a player if his interest has been rekindled.
Has the assistance of one of the top riders at this level and the gelding is back on a winning mark, so portents look good for a bold effort. Should be sharper for last month's visit to Sandown. One to consider.
Dropped to a handy mark but was well beaten over C&D last month and needs to dig deeper before the rot sets in. One to be wary of just now.
Unexposed at the trip and merits consideration after a decent effort over a slightly longer trip at Goodwood on Sunday; wasn't beaten far despite finishing fifth. Very well handicapped and paired off with a rider who has won this race before.
Emulated his dam by winning over this trip with a gutsy effort at Lingfield in March; wasn't able to reproduce when well backed afterwards but was back to something like his best latest. Solid place claims if he handles the ground.
0-16 on turf (won over hurdles in Ireland though) but in reasonably good form. Being kept busy after last week's run at Chepstow; but worth bearing in mind his trainer won last year's renewal with a horse who followed a similar preparation.
