Holds a very appealing profile given how progressive he is. Up another 3lb after justifying favouritism (4/5f) at Catterick (1m4f; heavy) by the narrowest of margins. Front two were comfortably clear of the rest, and he should get the hat-trick up.
Last seen at Haydock (1m6f; good to soft) in May when tailed off last of five. Now makes comeback with something to prove after 182 days off the track. Did notch a hat-trick of C&D wins earlier in the year though.
Tends to run consistently well, but has a major task on to reverse the form with Bo Samraan after that rival hammered him at Pontefract (1m2f; soft) recently. Step back up to 1m4f should help him though.
Continued progression in handicaps when shedding maiden tag at the sixth attempt to dot up over C&D last time out. Been raised 9lb by the handicapper for that demolition job, but is lightly raced so could be open to more improvement.
No knocking his consistency in recent months, and she has been dropped a 1lb for finishing third in a decent affair at Chelmsford (1m6f; standard). This is easier, and if she runs to a similar level she will be bang there.
Looked one-paced when third over C&D here at the end of last month., but did win over C&D three starts ago. Can be a bit inconsistent though, but he has claims if giving his true running.
