Rattled off a hat-trick last summer and got back in the winners' enclosure at Chelmsford in June. Ran well in defeat last time in a competitive heat at the Curragh and would still appear to be on a workable handicap mark.
Won the Scottish Sprint Cup at Musselburgh on his return to turf in April but the handicapper would now appear to have his measure judged on two recent runs. Others make more appeal.
Won three races last year and while below his best this campaign, it was a much improved effort when third at the Curragh last time. Very well-handicapped if building on that.
Recorded a hat-trick at the start of last year and only narrowly denied in his four-time bid in a valuable handicap at York. Largely struggled since but well below his last winning handicap mark now and drop back in trip should suit.
Won three times last year but badly out of form in a trio of efforts this time around and never going at Windsor last time; hard to fancy on that evidence. Back on last winning mark.
Generally a consistent sort and a two-time C&D winner. Got his head back in front at Brighton in April but this is a step up in class and others look more likely.
