Won three form five since being gelded including an emphatic 10L career best over two miles at Thirsk last month. Disappointed over this trip at Sandown last time and now up 3lb into much tougher company.
Maiden winner at Carlisle last year boasts a progressive profile with two narrow seconds over this trip at Sandown. Received a bump and his rider dropped his whip latest but still showed a good attitude. Stable in red-hot form and a likely player.
Proving progressive in four starts; gaining a Haydock maiden win and a third on handicap debut over this trip. Got in an early pace battle there and paid the price late on so possible there is more to come again. Likely contender off the same mark.
Returned from a 65-day break with improved performances and back-to-back turf wins over 1m4f last month. Rise of 3lb isn't a concern with improvement likely at this extra trip, however this is a sharp rise in class.
Racing to a consistent level and followed three consecutive runner up efforts with a first win and a career best over 1m3.5f in a maiden handicap at Yarmouth. Only up 2lb but this would require further improvement in this company.
Has been a revelation of late and completed a quick four wins in a row (including one over this C&D) in June and July. Up 6lb into a much tougher race with usual cheekpieces swapped for a visor. Still hard to discount.
