Arrives here looking for a hat-trick of wins following success on the AW surfaces of Wolverhampton and Kempton. Forced to concede weight all round but an obvious player.
Third of nine beaten 4½L on sole start at this track in September over 5f. Continues to run well in defeat and likely to give a good account once again.
Only modest form since a promising debut although he did endure a rough passage at Kempton last time. Others have stronger claims.
Improved to land a novice contest over C&D in June, and has run to that level several times in defeat since. No surprise to see a bold effort once again with first-time cheekpieces to assist.
Three-race maiden well held and never a factor on each occasion. Struggling in a couple of AW starts at Kempton and difficult to fancy on this occasion.
Mixed bag in three career efforts so far. First time hood doubtful to bring about the required amount of progress needed to play a role here.
Landed a 40/1 shock when getting off the mark at the fourth time of asking when landing a nursery handicap last month over C&D. Not to be discounted.
Posted a career best effort when finishing fourth of nine beaten 4¼L in a 6f novice auction at Newcastle earlier this month. Open to significant improvement.
Three-race maiden yet to hit the frame in a couple of AW starts at Wolverhampton and Newcastle. Not to be underestimated but likely to find a couple stronger.
Ivawood colt posted a career best effort on his latest start finishing third of 12 beaten 3¼L in a 6f Kempton handicap earlier this month. Likely to improve and worth considering.
Eight-race maiden but has produced a couple of taking performances this month here and over 6f at Kempton finishing second of 12 beaten 1¾L. One to consider on recent displays.
