Similar to his yard he's having a very productive season (yet to finish out of the first four); bumped into a well-handicapped one last time over 7f (wore first-time visor). Headgear now removed, mark fair enough with no well-weighted one's lurking.
Plethora of runner up spots last year led to question marks over his attitude; pattern repeated this year. Did win over this trip off a 5lb lower mark last year but on balance he's the type to find one too good once again; below-par last time.
Lightly-raced four-year-old who made a good start to his career in two 6f AW events (looked open to improvement). Well below-par last time back from a break (showed signs of temperament); handicap debut, first try over 7f (should make an impact).
Shock winner (66-1) earlier in the year over 6f having slipped back below his last winning mark. Scored three times in 2018 (twice over 7f); failed to build on his only win this year; never looked like getting involved last time, often slow away.
Just over a year since he last won with a losing run of 14 causing him to slide down the handicap. Ran with credit last time back from a seven-week break at Windsor (6f); may be worth another try over 7f with his last two wins coming over this trip.
