Proving an infrequent winner in recent years despite attractive mark on his best form. Down another 2lb but would need to lift considerably on six runs for new yard this season. Prefers an easier surface so any rain would be a major plus
Won five-times last year and looked like he may still be progressing when third on the Rowley Mile first time out. Static in four runs since, but mark is falling and could get involved if bouncing back to that form.
Finished a promising second over 7f at Wetherby (good-to-soft) on seasonal debut in May. Below par last time out over a mile; step back in trip could bring out the best of him; interesting contender especially if market speaks in his favour.
Generally a consistent type but never really gets involved at the business end of a race these days; clear chance on best of his form but still question marks about his winning mentality.
Generally better on the AW these days but three promising runs on the flat this term give him every chance if putting his best foot forward. Certainly one to consider.
Seems to be on the downgrade after winning two races at Thirsk last summer. Excuses last time out at Chester (wide draw); Not out of this one best of form but better recent record would have been a plus.
Won well at Thirsk in June before holding every chance later the same month at Chester (faded close home); should be happier at this track and may still be ahead of the handicapper based on some of his old Irish form.
Back down to the mark that saw him go down by the narrowest of margins at Thirsk in May. Showed signs of improvement at the end of June at Doncaster. Could run a big race.
Ayr specialist over this trip; has shown signs of late he is coming to hand for the season and looks well handicapped on all known form (12lb lower than when winning over C&D last August); interesting if in best form.
