1 win from 3 runs this year. Won 8-runner handicap (11/1) at Newmarket (6f, good) 31 days ago, keeping on gamely. 9lb higher mark to contend with back on AW but he's consistent on artificial surfaces.
Latest win at Beverley in August. 40/1, thirteenth of 16 in handicap at Nottingham (6.1f, good to firm) 20 days ago, never involved from a high draw. No surprise to see him back to form here.
11/1, bit below form fifth of 9 in handicap at Ascot (6f, good to soft) 18 days ago. Makes polytrack debut. Has good chance on pick of form.
Fourteen runs since last win in 2019. 9/1, first run since leaving Stuart Williams when ninth of 12 in handicap at Chelmsford City (5f) 19 days ago, not knocked about. One to keep an eye on.
C&D winner. 1 win from 3 runs this year. Fourth of 5 in handicap at Goodwood (5f, good to soft, 13/2) 27 days ago. That ought to have blown the cobwebs away and he's lightly raced on AW.
Creditable fourth of 10 in handicap (16/1) at Wolverhampton (7.2f) 15 days ago. Yet to fully fire this term but mark is slowly easing and return to 6f a likely plus.
Career best when winning 10-runner handicap at this C&D (15/2) 26 days ago, making all and just holding on. Record on artificial surfaces' is a solid one and possibilities from 2 lb higher.
Course winner. Last of 12 in handicap at Salisbury (6f, soft, 14/1) 19 days ago, lost all chance at start.
7/1, career best when winning 11-runner handicap at this C&D 11 days ago, value for extra having hand his run halted 2f out. 6 lb higher mark to contend with but he's respected nevertheless.
Last of 10 in handicap (16/1) at Windsor (6f, soft) 8 days ago, weakening over 1f out. Record has been ditinctly mixed this year and others make greater appeal.
15/2, respectable tenth of 19 in handicap at Ascot (6f, good) 46 days ago, not ideally placed. Makes polytrack debut.
C&D winner in September. 5/2, good second of 14 in handicap at this course (7f) 13 days ago, produced to lead last ½f and only collared late on. A well-run 6f may suit even better on that evidence.
Juan Les Pins (15/8), Buhturi (5/1), Strong Power (13/2), Phuket Power (7/1), Little Boy Blue (9/1), Triggered (12/1), Nefarious (12/1), Saaheq (14/1), Wiley Post (20/1), Saluti (22/1), Street Parade (66/1), A Sure Welcome (100/1)
JUAN LES PINS boasts a positive profile at this venue, running his best race to date despite finding one too good over 7f 2 weeks ago. His sole career success to date came in a well-run race over C&D, and with that scenario on the cards here, all looks set fair for another big run from a handy draw. Fellow C&D winner Strong Power, Buhturi and Phuket Power head up the dangers.
