9st 12lb

J: David Probert

T: Harry Charlton

Won this race in 2021 and fifth of six (raced freely) in 2023; it's more than two years since he last won (also C&D) and he's now a 9yo but his C&D third two months ago showed again that he should not be far away.

Winless since early 2022 but he did go very close over C&D in November; a lesser run back here since needs forgiving, though.

Winless since early 2022 but he got right back on track when edged out by Sir Chauvelin over C&D four weeks ago; can go well again nudged up just a 1lb.

Sleeping Lion

9st 7lb

J: Callum Shepherd

T: Harry & Roger Charlton

Missed most of 2022 and he's had only four runs this year; ran respectably in a small-field Group 3 contest in May but he was well held in a Listed event at Sandown in July and was 5l behind Ocean Wind in that race; this drop back in trip should be fine but he has some work to do at the weights after a break.
