Well below his best in three starts since joining this stable and now switches from a visor to blinkers. Yet to get in the money in eight AW starts and hard to fancy at present.
Looked to progressing nicely with seconds at Wolverhampton and Windsor in May and June, however has been very poor the last twice when weakening quickly. Hard to be confident in off the back of those runs.
Boasts three wins and a good fourth over this C&D this year. Left three poor runs behind with his latest win when returning to this surface. Time of the race was good and likely to be involved again off 3lb higher.
Six-race maiden has shown regressive form in two poor starts since joining this stable who are quiet at present. Down 3lb but easy to overlook for now.
Ran his worst of three races to date last time and has to struggled to make an impression after slow starts. Huge improvement required off this opening mark on handicap debut.
Has fallen 15lb on a long losing run stretching back to July 2017. Three runs for his new yard have failed to show any signs of a return to form and he seems to have lost his way for now.
Boasts 19 career wins including two over this C&D last year. Now 12lb lower but he hasn't been anywhere near that level for some time now. Not disgraced when pulling hard on his return this month but still plenty more needed.
May well have had a stiff task last time at Newmarket when 6lb out of the weights but her overall profile (0-18) is disheartening. Other runs this year have also been less than encouraging.
