Ran fairly well on similarly bad ground here in the spring but his record on it otherwise is patchy; he stays further, though, which will help in the conditions, and arrives in good form after a Polytrack win off 3lb lower this month.

Dual Polytrack winner for Adam West; ran fairly well on tough terms on heavy ground this time last year; has been offering a bit more since returned to the Flat and it wouldn't be a shock to see him pop up.

Opened account at Wincanton (1m7f, heavy) in January and arguably ran a fair bit better than bare form suggests when a weakening fifth at Hereford (2m, soft) two weeks ago; considered each-way.

Record of 1-24 but she returned to form with a good second at Bath (11.6f, good; hood added) last month and backed that up with a close third at Lingfield (1m2f, soft) 16 days ago; on unchanged mark and another bold bid should be on the cards.

Lost her way after making a reasonably bright start for Karl Burke; seems to be working her way back to form for this trainer, running well at Ffos Las (7.5f, soft; 50-1) last month; should stay this trip, so isn't without a chance for a place at least.
