Better but still well held fourth here last time after missing the break. Remains hard to fancy on overall poor form this season and others preferred.
Hasn't won on the Flat since his 1m4f maiden win on debut. Tailed off over further on last month's stable debut and while down in grade, remains one to watch.
Won in May 2018 off 4lb lower and that was his first win since 2015 so doesn't jump out as being well handicapped. Form this year has been solid but hasn't suggested this step up in distance is what is required.
Won at Ripon this time last year off 13lb higher but has seemingly lost his way this campaign. Better suited by drop back in trip but hard to be confident in at present.
Winner on the AW at Wolverhampton in May but is a far better performer on a synthetic surface and his latest two turf runs don't inspire confidence.
Three time winner last year and is now 4lb lower than the last of them. Racing to a consistent standard this year while finding some of the distances too far. Now down to an attractive mark and any significant rain would be a major plus.
Showed little in three runs in Germany but left that readily behind on stable debut when destroying a field on British and stable debut over this C&D. Due to go up 14lb so 8lb well in under 6lb penalty. Hard to beat.
