Returned to form with a 1¼L victory on debut for this yard over this distance at Epsom (good) last week. Carries a 6lb penalty for that victory and is one for the shortlist once more.
Signs of ability in three starts in novice company most recently when fifth of seven over this distance at Haydock (good-to-soft) last month. Worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
Impressive 4L winner of a 1m selling handicap at Thirsk (good) on his penultimate start. Followed that up with a good second over the same C&D on Saturday and is likely to play a leading role in this contest.
Running well in defeat this season including when 4½L fifth over this trip at Redcar (good-to-soft) in June. Visor worn for the first time on his penultimate start returns having worn blinkers last time out.
Recorded a first turf success when triumphing over C&D on good-to-firm going last month. Placed on both subsequent starts including when ½L third over 6f on good-to-soft going here a fortnight ago.
Decent fifth in a 7f handicap at Ayr (good-to-firm) last month when returning from a break. Held upped to 1m at Musselburgh (good) subsequently and others make more appeal.
Failed to build on promising fourth on stable debut at Ripon (6f, soft) in June most recently when tenth of 12 over this trip at Redcar (good-to-firm) last month. Wears a visor for the first time.
Fair form in three novice starts for previous yard including when 9¼L fifth over 6f at Carlisle (good-to-soft) in June. Stepping up in trip on handicap and stable debut.
Disappointed in two 6f starts since finishing 4L fifth over 7f at Leicester (soft) in June. Races off a mark 6lb lower than when winning at Leicester (7f, good-to-soft) in first time blinkers last October.
Maiden after eight starts and finished a fair 6L fourth in first time cheekpieces in a claiming contest over this trip at Catterick (good-to-soft) two weeks ago. Probably best watched racing from out of the handicap.
Well beaten on all three starts in novice company most recently when 25L fifth over this trip at Redcar (soft) in November last year. More needed from out of the weights on handicap and seasonal debut.
