C&D winner for this yard 12 months ago and ran well on her next three starts; never in the hunt over C&D last week but this is weaker and that should have blown away any cobwebs; can do better.

Did well on AW last winter and his two runs back from wind surgery have both been encouraging in their own way; returning to 6f can help and he has run well in defeat on the three previous occasions Adam Kirby has taken the ride on him.

Not prolific but all three wins have come on Tapeta, albeit over 5f; couldn't land a blow at Newcastle 11 days ago but previous win there suggested he should be able to deal with this mark; others more persuasive for the win over today's trip.

Got it together this year and in some style, winning four times over 6f and climbing the weights by 24lb; not far off his very best when second (third past the post) over 5f here two weeks ago and the return to this trip will help; could yet have further progress in him.

Still seeking his first win for this yard and although his mark is in decline, his ability seems to be too; should be at concert pitch after a couple of runs back from an absence and this is his first run in a Class 5 handicap since May 2017.
