Course win over 5f in May underlined his good winter AW form although he'll find conditions very different today, that win coming on heavy ground. Well below form in two starts since over sprint trips he now tries 7f (1-7 at the trip).
Both his 2018 wins were registered here, one coming in this contest; hit the target twice since on the AW over 1m. Found his good run of form this year at an end of late (last two runs have been poor); no surprise if he bounced back here.
Quite well drawn for one who likes to go forward (has won over C&D) with the majority of his wins coming at left-handed tracks over this trip. Remains rather hard to place these days; well held in a Group 3 last time, folded tamely when challenged.
Useful performer when trained in France, made a winning GB/stable start when scoring at Thirsk (7f) in April. Has twice since shaped better than the bare result particularly last time in the Wokingham (drawn on wrong side); leading contender here.
Consistent throughout 2018 gaining a well-deserved win over 6f at Hamilton (soft ground). Stepped up markedly on her reappearance effort with a career-best effort back in handicap company last time; looks to face a stiff task back in to Listed grade.
Not won since taking consecutive handicaps in early 2017; profile subsequently looks rather uneven. Returned to form from a fallow spell last time over 6f at Pontefract (race run to suit); faces a demanding task back in Listed company.
Sole three-year-old in the field he's been far from disgraced this year despite lacking a win on his CV; set some stiff tasks in Group/Listed company. Ran soundly enough (made the running) in the Group 3 Jersey Stakes last time; enters the equation.
