Snug winner of a moderate 5f Musselburgh seller (good to firm) in July; finished last of ten (33/1) over C&D 24 days ago; trainer also saddles Prestbury Park.
Hasn't won in recent times and was turned over at odds of Evens-fav at Nottingham (5f, good) last month. However, he has a handy inside draw and that Nottingham form has been boosted since by both the winner and the second.
Ex French; made all to score on stable debut in a Redcar novice (6f) last September; weakened on belated seasonal/handicap bow at Doncaster (6f) last month; remains unexposed dropping back in trip.
Continues to knock at the door without quite forcing a winning opportunity; no match for Move In Time (a 3½L winner) in the Chaplins Club handicap at Pontefract (5f, good) last week.
Dangerously handicapped at his best and is effective over both 5f and 6f; below-par in his most recent outings and is drawn wide in stall 14; stablemate of Desert Ace.
Rattled off a hat-trick of wins in 5f and 6f handicaps last August and would be unhindered by the forecast showers; hampered at the start when third to Moonlit Sands at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) ten days ago; his time of the year?
Fibresand specialist so his trainer will undoubtedly have a close eye upon the fast approaching new season at Southwell; last of seven to Dapper Man on return from a break at Chelmsford (5f) in early July.
4lb higher than when winning at Doncaster (5f, good) last month - offset by the 5lb claim of Harrison Shaw; close fifth to Arnold in this contest in 2018; well drawn in the inside berth.
Overcame a tardy start to score at Carlisle (5f, good to soft) recently, accounting for both Guardia Svizzera (third) and Suitcase 'N' Taxi (fourth); carries a 5lb penalty; 2lb lower than when winning a C&D seller in May 2018.
No win since July 2018 and has fallen to a 16lb lower mark; showed early pace when fourth to Moonlit Sands (Guardia Svizzera third) at Carlisle latest; is versatile in terms of trip and ground; stablemate of East Street Revue; very tough draw.
Winner over 6f at Wolverhampton last November (had earlier filled that same position at Newcastle); 1lb higher than when an excellent ¾L second to the in-form Ginger Jack over C&D latest.
2lb higher than when beaten a nose by Oriental Splendour over C&D (good to firm) in mid-July; less effective since and just 1-15 overall.
19-race turf maiden; never constructively involved at Pontefract latest; could prove capable of winning off this kind of mark once reverting to the Tapeta at Gosforth Park, Newcastle.
