Inconsistent. Up 2lb for going close in first-time cheekpieces at Doncaster last time. Should be competitive, but clearly needs to pull out a bit more.
C&D winner last time out (good to soft) in a 0-80, which was a first turf success. Up 4lb for that, but might have had a bit more up his sleeve, and in this weaker field, he has claims again.
All three wins have been over 5f on good to firm or good to soft. Went very close over 6f at Leicester (heavy) last time. Handicapper has left his mark alone, and if he can repeat that effort he is a contender back in trip.
Has won three times over 5f-6f on good, soft and heavy ground. Latest of those came when 3lb lower at Chepstow in June, in a 0-65. Ran well from this mark here next time. Out of his depth last time, but not ruled out here.
Behind both Spirit Power and Somewhere Secret when fourth here last month. Ran well from his 1lb lower mark at Ffos Las again last time. Shouldn't be far away.
Both turf wins have been on soft ground, the latest at Nottingham in October being when 1lb higher. Has scored over 6f at Southwell (AW) since then, when 2lb higher, but recent turf efforts less encouraging.
Dual fast ground winner on turf (5f/6f) whose latest win came on AW (6f) in December. 1lb higher here, and should be very competitive if cheekpieces have the desired effect.
0-32 on turf, having won nine on AW. Not ruled out of the frame if close to his best, but clearly vulnerable for win purposes.
