Won four times on turf but completely transformed since coming here with a C&D four-timer landed. Under a 5lb penalty as he bids to remain 100 per cent at the course and every chance he overcomes it.
Infrequent winner but gained first C&D success latest after running well here the time before also. 5lb rise keeps the pressure on but still expected to make a bold bid in current form.
Five-time turf winner a maiden on AW and was well held when third to Suitcase 'n' Taxi here latest. Better off with that rival under penalty but reversal unlikely.
Four-time AW winner hasn't scored in 15 starts since Newcastle 1m success a year ago. Has run with plenty of consistency during that sequence but well held at Chelmsford again latest.
Losing run of 10 now and while his fourth latest was a decent effort he has a lot to find with Suitcase 'n' Taxi based on their C&D meeting in November.
Not made the frame since winning at Chester in the summer (eight starts). Desperate form when last seen but hopefully a break will have helped.
Last Year's Winner
Suitcase 'n' Taxi (15/8), Private Matter (2/1), Smokey Lane (9/2), Custard The Dragon (11/2), Glory of Paris (10/1), Call Out Loud (16/1), Sans Souci Bay (66/1)
