Underwhelming sixth of seven at Newmarket (6f, good to firm) last month and two good efforts at Doncaster (6f, good to firm) and over C&D (good to firm). Cheekpieces added and still has potential if putting that latest effort behind him.
After three good runs, he weakened tamely at Windsor (6f, good to firm) 25 days ago beating only one rival. Hasn't always been the most consistent but is still fairly handicapped on his best from 2018 if bouncing back.
Has been highly tried for most of his career and has got one or two efforts this year that showed he has the ability to win at the right level. This is the easiest race he has contested for a long time and is an interesting runner.
Scrambled home at Leicester (7f, good to firm) in July and matched that when fourth at Ascot (7f, good to firm) 12 days ago. Has had a tendency to be keen so this drop in trip may suit with cheekpieces added.
Has been mostly in good form since switching to handicaps and recorded her second win here (7f, good to firm) last time. Seemed to improve for the step-up in trip and based on her previous efforts, the drop back to 6f may not be ideal.
Won twice this season, most recently at Newmarket (6f, good) in July. Beaten off similar marks in three outings since then and although she ran well at Kempton (6f, Polytrack) recently, needs to improve again to get her head in front.
