4-time C&D winner. 3 wins from 9 runs this year. Latest win here in June. 10/1, creditable fourth of 11 in handicap at this C&D 9 days ago, never nearer. Summed up by his mark at present.
40/1, tenth of 12 in handicap at Kempton (6f) 18 days ago. Makes tapeta debut. Has work to do.
Sixteen runs since last win in 2019. 50/1, ninth of 12 in handicap at Kempton (6f) 18 days ago. Others make more appeal.
Bit below form sixth of 11 in handicap (10/1) at Southwell (5f) 13 days ago. Back up in trip. Given a chance by the assessor.
Twelve runs since last win in 2018. Cheekpieces on for 1st time, seventh of 11 in handicap (16/1) at Beverley (5f, good) 67 days ago. Back up in trip. Others preferred.
Course winner. Latest win at Bath in August. Creditable fourth of 9 in handicap (11/1) at this course (5.1f) 20 days ago. Merits consideration.
Course winner. Winner here in September. First run since leaving Richard Fahey when creditable third of 11 in handicap at this C&D (3/1) 9 days ago. Shortlist material.
Latest win at Chepstow in August. 7/2, creditable second of 11 in handicap at this C&D 9 days ago. Likely to be thereabouts once again.
Latest win at Pontefract in September. 33/1, eighth of 11 in handicap at this C&D 9 days ago. Not totally discounted.
Eighteen runs since last win in 2019. 25/1, bit below form seventh of 12 in handicap at Lingfield (6f, AW) 18 days ago. Hard to make a case for.
3 wins from 15 runs this year. 33/1, first run since leaving David Brown when ninth of 12 in handicap at Lingfield (6f, AW) 18 days ago. Others more persuasive.
Araifjan (2/1), Iconic Knight (4/1), Wiley Post (6/1), Musharrif (10/1), Poyle Vinnie (11/1), Steelriver (12/1), Street Parade (12/1), Mythmaker (14/1), Heer We Go Again (22/1), Pink Flamingo (22/1), Mews House (40/1)
In-form pair ARAIFJAN and Iconic Knight make most appeal but the former should be able to secure a better tactical position and is therefore preferred in a race where few appeal as being well treated. Heer We Go Again is another one to consider having hit the frame at this course on his last 2 starts.
