Completed a hat-trick over 7f-1m as a three-year-old, but has not won since. Has slipped to a handy mark, however, and also drops in grade here, so could do much better with 7lb also being claimed.
Scored here (1m2f, soft) in a 0-75 in June, when 2lb lower. Never involved in two starts since, the latter over 1m4f (AW). Needs to put that behind him and not sure drop back this far in trip will be ideal.
Best of his three runs was a narrow defeat on debut at Kempton (1m, AW). Didn't need to be that good to score at Bath (1m, firm) last time. Now enters handicaps on a reasonable mark and should be competitive.
Both wins have been on AW surfaces. Best turf run two starts back at Doncaster, when just over 2L second (1m, soft). Same mark here, and should have a chance of picking up some prize money.
Dual soft ground winner within the space of a week earlier this season, the latter over C&D, when 9lb lower. Has struggled from this mark on quicker ground since, so returns with a bit to prove.
Three promising efforts in novice company so far. Since gelded. Looks to have got in on a fair mark for this handicap debut, and no surprise to see him go very close, if as effective on slower ground.
Had a steadily improving profile which culminated in a win at Haydock (1m, good to firm) last month, when 3lb lower. Raced keenly when last of four from this mark in better company at Newmarket last time, so more needed.
Has won on good to soft here over 1m2f, but yet to score from a mark this high. Recent efforts don't suggest that he will buck that trend today.
