Winner of his last two starts most recently over this trip at Ripon (good) earlier this month. Raised 4lb for that victory and is a notable runner on AW return.
Impressive winner of a 1m2f novice race at Nottingham (good-to-firm) in August last year. Placed on both subsequent starts including on handicap debut at Kempton (1m3f) in September last year. Making his seasonal debut.
Victorious on his first two starts this campaign including by a neck over this trip at Lingfield in April. Good third in a competitive event over this C&D subsequently and is one to note on this occasion.
C&D winner by a head in April and registered a couple of decent efforts subsequently. Well beaten here last time out however and needs to return to form to figure on this occasion.
Making his seasonal debut when 3L second in a 1m2f handicap at Doncaster (good) in April. Interesting despite a below par effort at York (good-to-firm) the following month.
Promising third in a 7f handicap at Newmarket (good) last month. Disappointed over an extended 1m at Epsom (good) later that month however and stamina to prove stepping up in trip.
Unbeaten in two starts here including when making a winning seasonal debut when scoring by 4½L over this C&D in April. Disappointed upped to 1m3f at Kempton subsequently however.
Well beaten sixth at Ripon (good-to-firm) on first attempt at this trip last time out. More needed if he is to take this contest on return to the AW.
Gelded following a 1m2f handicap victory at Newcastle on his penultimate start. Blinkers tried for the first time following a ½L second over this trip at Windsor (good-to-firm) later that month.
Decent fourth in a handicap over this trip at Newmarket (good-to-firm) last time out. Likely more needed if he is to register a second C&D success.
