T: Micky Hammond

Inconsistent sort who has won just one of his 30 starts and was pulled up at Catterick last time; however, a case can be made judged on three of his seven performances in 2022 and he's not written off today.

Won in first-time visor here (3m1f, good to soft) in January and returned from break with respectable third over C&D (soft) last month but he's very inconsistent and would appeal more over further.

J: Miss Becky Smith

T: Micky Hammond

Only win (from 28 attempts) gained over 3m1f here in January (visored for first time); mixed bag since and doubts at this trip on return from a break; still 10lb above winning mark.
