Returned to best to inflict the bang in-form Jackhammer's only defeat in his last four starts over 1m2f at Ayr last time. Does tend to hold his form once he finds it so has to be respected off 4lb higher mark.
May appreciate getting back on turf after a couple of tame efforts on the AW. Best run this term when second in higher grade at Redcar in April so not without a chance.
Has struck form in the past month and now chasing a hat-trick following wins at Beverley and Carlisle. Trip and ground fine and only up 6lb in total.
Off the mark over 1m at Redcar prior to never seeing daylight at Ripon last week. That run can be ignored though does have to prove he stays this extra furlong.
Still a maiden but runner-up three times this season and lost out by a nose to in-form rival in big field at Naas last time. Irish trainer 3-19 with his runners at the track in the last 5 years.
First run since leaving Mick Easterby and best effort to date was a fourth in seller at Ripon which wouldn't be good enough here.
Best run to date was when third over C&D in May but that was on soft ground and subsequent runs leave her with a good deal to find.
