Ended turf season with a win but only beaten three rivals in as many starts since reverting to AW where he's won three times previously. Capable here but others in better form.
3-10 record for Andrew Balding but 0-6 since joining this yard. Rather inconsistent recent profile but well treated on best form and not ruled out here.
14-race losing run since winning at Lingfield in March. He finished seventh of 10 on his last appearance at Wolverhampton (6f) and is best opposed again if running (also Declared at Lingfield on Saturday).
Never made the frame in 10 starts since winning at Newmarket on his debut in 2018. Best form suggests this mark may be within range and fair effort last time gives him place claims.
Ultra-consistent course specialist gained fourth career C&D success last time out after three seconds here before that. Always makes a bold bid and may well be capable of overcoming latest weight rise from stall one.
Five-time winner here over 1m plugged on into a never nearer sixth behind Break The Silence latest over 7f. Always liable to get behind over this trip so again appeals more as an each-way option despite the weight pull.
Last Year's Winner
Break The Silence (5/2), Kraka (3/1), Forseti (7/2), Red Bravo (9/2), Muqarred (5/1), Sylviacliffs (6/1), Compass Point (20/1), De Little Engine (33/1)
- Break The Silence
