Scored two starts back in what was his first success for his new yard at this track (1m4f). Was disappointing last time at Kempton (1m4f) on the AW as he could only finish eighth of nine. Needs to bounce back but is capable on turf.
Is 0-9 on turf but he has won on the AW, with success coming over 1m at Lingfield. Finished ninth of 10 on his latest start at Sandown (1m6f). Has been eased 2lb in the weights here. Has to bounce back from his last two disappointing displays.
Was successful for the first time this season on his latest run at Sandown (1m6f) when starting as the 7/2 market leader. Has gone up 2lb for that win but he was rated much higher earlier this year. One for the shortlist.
Scored for the second time this season at Ripon (1m4f) on his latest start when going off as the 13/8 favourite. Has been raised 8lb by the handicapper for that success but this step up in trip should help him. Can't ignore.
Was successful over 1m5f in France in 2018. Moved to the UK earlier this year. Finished sixth of 12 at Kempton (1m3f) on the AW on what was his first run for his new yard. Taking a step up in trip. One to watch for now.
Has been in consistent form on the Flat this season without success. He went very close to victory last time at Ripon (1m6f) when second of six, beaten by just a nose. Remains off the same mark here. Has a great chance to go one place better.
