Fair fifth in a 1m1f handicap at Redcar (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares stepping up markedly in distance.
Placed on three of his four starts since winning over 1m1f at Carlisle (heavy) in May. Ran well when runner-up over 1m3f at the same venue last time out and is interesting on just his second start at this trip.
Decent effort in finishing fourth in a 1m2f handicap at Redcar (good) just over two weeks ago. Was a winner over this trip off a 13lb higher mark at Ripon (good-to-firm) in July last year.
Successful four times for previous yard but disappointed when last of 11 at Ayr (1m5f, good-to-firm) on stable debut last month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are absent on this occasion.
Handicap mark is falling following a couple of moderate efforts since returning to the Flat. Rated 15lb lower than when winning over an extended 1m3f at Limerick (good) in June last year.
Victorious over this trip at Hamilton (good-to-firm) on his penultimate start but disappointed off this 3lb higher mark at Beverley (1m4f, good-to-firm) subsequently. Worth a check in the market.
Completed a double when winning on good-to-soft ground over this C&D last time out. Carries a 5lb penalty for that victory and looks likely to play a leading role once more.
Fair effort in finishing 6L sixth in a 1m2f handicap at Redcar (good) at the end of last month. Step up in trip a positive but more needed in this contest.
C&D winner recorded a decent effort in finishing runner-up in a handicap over an extended 1m4f at Musselburgh (soft) a week ago. Races off a mark 4lb higher than for his most recent victory.
Beaten 46L when finishing last of 11 at Nottingham (1m2f, soft) on return from a break recently. Visor worn for the first time that day is absent stepping up in trip.
Broke his maiden at the 16th attempt when winning by a head over an extended 1m4f at Musselburgh (good-to-firm) early last month. Well beaten over 1m4f at RIpon (good) subsequently however.
Making his handicap debut when finishing 12L last of nine over 1m2f at Haydock (soft) recently. Probably best watched on first attempt at this distance.
Seven race maiden was beaten 9L in a 1m2f handicap at Beverley (good-to-firm) on debut for this yard last month. Well beaten on only previous start over this distance and is racing from out of the handicap.
