Winning for the fifth time when victorious over 1m at Ffos Las (good) last time out. Raised 3lb for that victory and is interesting once more.
Successful over 7f here in June but has finished held in two starts at this venue since returning from a break. Worth a check in the market off a mark 1lb higher than for his most recent victory.

Returning from a break when finishing a well beaten seventh over this trip at Bath (good-to-soft) recently. Interesting to see how he fares having won over this C&D in May.

Out of form when last in action back in the spring including when beaten 64L in finishing last of 14 at Kempton (1m) in June. Worth a check in the market racing off her much lower turf mark.
Wore cheekpieces (retained since) for the first time when winning by a head on good-to-firm ground over C&D a month ago. Finished 1¾L fourth at Wolverhampton (7f) subsequently and is interesting back up in trip.

Maiden after eight starts and finished well beaten at Salisbury (1m, good-to-soft) in August. Cheekpieces tried for the first time on debut for this stable.
