Several good efforts in 2018 including here, and bounced back to form when good fourth at Pontefract last month behind one who franked the from when second in red hot handicap last week. Can start slowly but shouldn't matter in small field.
Yet to win since coming from France (sole win was there in 2015) and needs to bounce back from tame effort at Newcastle last time to trouble the favourite here.
Turf form pretty ordinary since coming from Ireland and Carlisle run last week needs improving on. Would likely to be seen in better light in lesser company on AW.
Irish challenger who has been a revelation since switched back to Flat this month, completing a rapid hat-trick in facile fashion at Catterick last week. Still miles ahead of handicapper (just 3lb higher than 11L win there) and very hard to oppose.
