Ran well in Listed Chester race over 6f on soft ground when last spotted but that 22 months ago. Sports first-time eye-shields on debut for this yard, dual winner on AW at Newcastle needs a market check.
Three-time C&D winner in the past, now 11-years-old but as good as ever when close second here last time to Lord Riddiford. Can run well again but may be settling for places.
Previous C&D winner who most recent win came at Lingfield in March. Respectable 2½L fifth of 10 behind Lord Riddiford in handicap over C&D 11 days ago. Not ruled out on that effort.
Smart sprinter boasting 5-12 career strike rate, including narrow success at Kempton in 6f Class 2 event in April on sole try on the AW. Capable of competing again from current mark.
Winner at Chester in May last year over this trip, not happening in three turf runs this spring however and will have to prove credentials on artificial surface in bounce-back bid.
Took advantage of lower mark on AW to score over C&D 11 days ago, with likes of Tropics, Royal Birth and Udontdodou behind. Up 4lb and needs a career-best to follow up.
No real excuses at Epsom last time in valuable handicap having won there previously. Goes well no the AW and should bounce back in this company, makes the shortlist.
