Has been in good form recently. Scored at Doncaster (1m, soft) three starts back. Was second of six over this C&D (good to firm) last time out. Up 2lb but still looks capable of more success. One for the shortlist.
Broke his maiden two starts back at Hamilton (1m1f), scoring by 6L. Made his handicap debut last time at Windsor (1m3½f) where he didn't stay after going off as the 5/4 favourite. Back down in trip and cheekpieces on for the first time. Big player.
Scored on the AW early in his career as a novice at Newcastle (6f). Has struggled this season, although he was a little better on his latest start when fourth of seven at Chester (7½f). Has been eased 2lb here. Others preferred.
Broke his maiden on his third start at Ffos Las (7½f) at the back end of 2018. Was last of eight on his seasonal reappearance here over 1m2f. Has changed yards since then. Hood on for the first time. Others appeal more though.
Got off the mark at the third attempt over this distance at Thirsk. Has struggled in handicap company on his last two starts, although last time he was a little closer when sixth of nine at York (7f). Back up in trip. Each-way claims.
Was successful over this C&D last time on heavy ground where she ran on strongly in the closing stages to score by 2¼L in what was her second win of her career. Gone up 5lb to a new career high mark but remains a big contender.
