Back from a break and no threat over C&D nine days ago, having gone off a 33-1 chance; hard to enthuse about after that run.
Previous course winner, lost his way for former trainer and hasn't impressed in two starts since joining Marjorie Fife. Others more likely.
Runner-up over C&D three week s ago sporting first-time blinkers (retained) and should be on the shortlist now from unchanged mark.
Finished behind re-opposing Forbidden Dance over C&D last time out, may do so again now.
Creditable fourth of 11 in handicap at Beverley last time out on heavy ground, blinkers are added now and this longer trip looks a positive.
First-time cheekpieces are tried on debut for this trainer, but the 990-day absence must be a major concern.
Third at Kempton last time out, suited by the extra yardage on offer here and should have similar aspirations having gone up 2lb in the ratings.
Finished third in a C&D maiden last time out in first-time eye-shield (retained) and could have a big run in him here under excellent claiming rider.
In decent form over jumps recently, yet to win on the Flat but hasn't got big miles on the clock and this mark far from insurmountable.
Improved effort last time at Lingfield in finishing second over slightly shorter trip, claims of being involved again with a repeat and potential for better.
Ex-Roger Charlton inmate, not making any inroads for new handler and doesn't appeal from out of the handicap now.
