Boasts a win and a place from three starts over C&D. Third of 17 over the combination on heavy ground last month. Holds claims if things fall his way.
Lightly raced in the last three months. Recent efforts have been below-par and has not shown enough overall to be of significant interest in this contest.
Driven out to land Ripon 5f handicap in June at the eighth time of asking. Respectable efforts since off his revised mark before tailing off in a dismal C&D effort on heavy ground last month. Hard to place any faith in.
Appears to have been flattered by his second of 11 at Redcar over 1m in September with a number of poor efforts either side of that run. Out of sorts on most recent start on the AW at Southwell and hard to make a case for at present.
Running well in defeat in a number of starts this season since September. Long losing stretch which goes back to April 2018 but recent starts have indicated a return to form.
Not the most reliable of sorts but has been in good form over this trip in a number of starts since August, including a win at Musselburgh in September off a 5lb lower mark. Infrequent winner but often gets involved and handles this sort of ground.
Not beaten far in a couple of starts running off his revised mark since landing a Chepstow 5f handicap on good to soft ground in September. Could benefit from the early pace around him.
Has placed over C&D in four starts over the combination. Not in the best of form this term and more needed with a couple of better handicapped sorts lurking.
