Two wins from six starts at the track, so goes well here; possibly a little out of his depth in a Listed contest here last time, not disgraced all the same and will find this easier; slight worry a slow pace would count against him.
Still 2lb higher than last win, which came at Chelmsford last August (8f); can take a hold but has a chance to lead these if connections decide to go that way, and making all may be his best chance of success.
Comes into this in great form, having won on his first start for new yard at Wolverhampton last time; yet to race on this surface, which asks a new question of him, but still unexposed and could easily improve again.
Improving sort that took a lower-grade contest than this at Wolverhampton last time, one that's earned him an 8lb rise here; may not be entirely straightforward and faces a tougher task here, which is enough to make you look elsewhere.
