Six-time winner left a spell in the doldrums well behind latest when second of five here over 5f. Could build on that now and handicap according to old form is certainly within range.
Over two years now since he recorded a sixth career start. Found a level of consistency over 6f before flopping over 7f latest so back in trip he has place claims once more.
Took advantage of a sliding mark to gain sixth career win by narrowest of margins at Yarmouth in July. Latest run can be ignored given saddle slipped so respected here having only gone up 2lb for aforementioned win.
Already produced three wins this season (all on the AW; Tapeta at up to 7f); had held his form well returned to turf over 6f before not staying 1m at Newmarket but latest fifth of six at Sandown (7f) must be improved upon.
June C&D winner has since finished second and fourth here with the latest off today's handicap mark. Not exactly well handicapped at present but few are and as one of the more in-form runners he has to be respected.
Made it two wins in last three when beating Suzi's Connoisseur over C&D two starts back but disappointed at Brighton next when only 3lb higher. Other than that been running well though so not ruled out.
Yet to win in 13 for this yard but has been second five times including all of his last three races over 5f. Running exclusively over the minimum trip this season but won over 7f for Keith Dalgleish so perhaps extra 1f can end his seconditis.
Consistent performer at her level, winning a Dundalk maiden in November. Second at Fairyhouse latest off this mark a respectable effort and interesting she comes here after twice skipping engagements back home.
Left a run of modest efforts behind when bolting up by 7L post wind surgery and Brighton last week and is 5lb well in under his 5lb penalty so will surely take all of the beating today.
