Font-runner and C&D winner who hasn't been at his best in two starts since reappearing last month, but the return to 0-75 company may help and has undergone wind surgery since last seen; handles soft ground, but would be especially favoured should the going remain on the quick side.

Below best in Thirsk Hunt Cup last time but it was still a fair run and he was progressive previously, posting a career best to win at Ripon (1m, soft) two starts ago; the Ripon form is strong and this 5lb higher mark might not be beyond him; claims may be boosted if slow ground prevails.

Six career wins, the latest gained in very good style under positive ride at Hamilton (8.3f, good) three weeks ago; unlikely to have things all his own way this time, though, and an 8lb rise asks quite a lot of him.

Capitalised on uncontested lead when returning to form and easily making all at Thirsk last month; his run at Ayr three days later may have come too soon and on his old form he's not handicapped out of things, now 9lb higher than at Thirsk, but he needs to prove that revival was no one-off.
