Ex-Irish gelding whose sole win came more than two years ago; has been off since a poor effort in June but went close in this race last season off a 4lb higher mark and could do better back under James Doyle and back in the tongue-tie.

Unraced beyond 10.3f but the way this Camelot 5yo kept on for third over that trip at Chester two runs ago suggests this step up in distance is worth a go; headgear on his last five starts but not today; effective on Polytrack and could be a contender if seeing it out.

Suited by slow ground; on a 14-race losing sequence but is in decent form, having been placed in three of last four runs (1m/1m2f); combination of new headgear and William Buick (up for first time) may enable him to regain the winning thread; respected off a workable mark.

Useful in his prime, most recently in autumn 2020; not disgraced last autumn in his first two starts for new yard but he's since raced too freely in his two attempts over hurdles, in a big lead when he fell at the fourth last time; well down the weights; behind in his only two AW races.

Had been looking exposed but has improved for his in-form trainer lately, following up an easy Brighton win with a clear second at Epsom last Thursday; will be 3lb higher from tomorrow and holds leading claims under William Buick (7-36 for the yard).
