Back in the groove, on his second start since undergoing wind surgery, when winning off 3lb lower over C&D in November; was held up off a stop-start gallop over further on Tapeta last time, so that was another decent effort.

Five-time C&D winner, latterly in an amateurs' event off 3lb lower last month; race wasn't run to suit on Tapeta last time and she'll be happier back here but there's not much wiggle room off this mark.

Ex-Alice Haynes; sole win came at 1m and ran creditably over 1m2f most recently (sold for 25,000gns since); nicely treated off current mark, so has possibilities if he's suited by drop back to 7f in new headgear.

Series of good efforts since back up in trip and returned to the AW for this yard, getting the better of the argument over 1m4f here and losing out only late after making most over C&D 13 days ago; a promising claimer is booked but likely to need a bit extra.
