Opened his campaign with a win at Redcar (1m2f). His form has dipped since then, including when he was sixth of 13 on his return to Redcar (1m2f) on his latest start. Has the visor on for the first time here. Capable off this mark.
Scored here over 1m6f three starts ago by an impressive 5L. Went close to following that up at Ayr (1m5f) as he was just ½L away in third place of 14. Could only finish ninth of 12 last time at Ascot (2m). Back down in trip. One to consider.
Has been running well recently without success. He was second of 14 on his penultimate start at Ayr (1m5f), beaten by a short-head, while last time at Ayr (1m2f), he was third of 11. Remains off the same mark. One to think about.
Broke his maiden at Ripon (1m2f) three runs ago. Has been unable to follow up in two outing since. His latest effort came at Redcar (1m2f) where he was third of eight. Remains off the same mark but others are preferred.
Was competitive in Group 3 races in 2017. Returned to action last March after almost two years off the track. Could only finish seventh of 12 last time at Doncaster (1m2f). Back up in trip. Leading contender given his ability.
Remains a maiden after eight starts. His latest appearance came over hurdles at Perth (2m) where he was pulled-up. He returns to the Flat here but he needs to improve a lot of what he shown so far.
