Four wins (two this year) for Mick Quinn; ran right up to his best in two runs in September (5f) but latest Chelmsford effort not quite so good; changed hands for £15,500 last week; new stable quick to get him back over 6f.

Sometimes blows the start but he was a useful operator for the Crisfords and the fact he's done all his winning on AW provides hope on his first start for his new yard; dropping to 6f will require him to break more smartly.

Drew a blank on turf this season but he is making amends on AW, winning 6f handicaps at Chelmsford and Lingfield last month before completing his hat-trick over C&D last week; that effort was backed up by the clock and a 5lb rise isn't excessive; big player again.

Multiple AW winner, including C&D, and she made an encouraging return from a break when fourth over 5f here 18 days ago; happier back at this trip and last winter's best form offers hope she is still feasibly treated; one to consider despite the widest stall.
