Stayed on strongly on seasonal return to win Salisbury 1m6f handicap in fine style. Struggled in three runs since off higher marks and first-time cheekpieces now reached for. Rider has 19% strike rate for last year's winning yard.
Veteran who returned from wind surgery and a 508-day break to finish a good third in Sandown 1m6f h'cap last month. Eased 2lb and chance if he doesn't 'bounce' on second start back.
Hit form last month with hurdles win at Ffos Las followed by length success in 2m h'cap on Flat at same track soon after. Up in class and raised 2lb so has to find more if he is going to complete his hat-trick.
Rattled off handicap four-timer in space of four weeks last year prior to disappointing third at Lingfield a year ago Not seen since and steps up half a mile in trip, but with yard in scintillating form has to be respected.
In good form last autumn winning at Newbury and on Rowley Mile track over 2m. Signs of a return to form over marathon trip at Lingfield last time and off 1lb lower is not out of it, especially if the ground were to ease.
Last win came over 2m at York in October 2017 off 1lb higher mark. Has appeared in grip of handicapper all starts this term and hasn't really done enough to suggest he's a winner-in-waiting. First-time cheekpieces applied.
Unexposed colt taking on older horses for the first time. Won novice stakes over 1m4f in heavy ground at Haydock in June and was third on first try at this trip at Ascot last time out. Blinkered first time for top yard.
