Stayed on strongly to win C&D handicap last time in some style. Faces tougher opposition this time but is clearly in good heart and should make a bold bid to follow up for yard with 22% strike arate with older horses at this venue.
Failed to score in five previous attempts on AW but has run some good races in defeat. Runner-up in C&D handicap off 91 penultimate start and appeared to find 5f too sharp when staying late at Wolverhampton last time.
Dual 6f Windsor handicap winner in 2018 but hasn't added to those successes since then. Recovered well from bump leaving stalls and stayed on to be just over one length third behind Harry's Bar over C&D last time. 3lb better of now.
C&D handicap winner off 95 in October then good third in Listed company time after at Lingfield. Close third last time in Wolverhampton handicap and has serious chance on these terms.
Decent sort but hasn't won since landing Chelmsford 7f conditions stakes in autumn 2018. Returnng from 175-day break when fifth over 7f last month in Newcastle handicap and should be effective dropping back in trip this time.
