A maiden after nine starts but lost out only by a short head at Lingfield (7f) last month and seemed to respond well to a headgear switch when close third in first-time blinkers (retained) three weeks ago; ought to make his presence felt again.

On a hat-trick and was well on top last time, despite getting loose beforehand; this is very competitive for a 0-60 and 7lb rise may leave him vulnerable.

Habitual hard-puller who's done better for blinkers going on this year; there can't be any moans about a 1lb rise for January's C&D win (race worked out well since) but he's exposed and this does look stronger.

Lightly raced colt who had a near miss on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) in January and was runner-up again over same C&D the following month; on same mark after a short break and is a big player if he can transfer his form back to turf; blinkers added.

Little to get excited about in three starts over 5f-6f last year, but much better when beaten a nose on handicap debut over C&D last month (Baileys Eminence back in third); may have further improvement in him so very much respected from the same mark.

Improver since switched to handicaps this year, getting off the mark at Chelmsford last month (7f); too keen over 7f here last time and dropping to 6f perhaps the way to go; cheekpieces replace visor today (win came in blinkers); draw could have been kinder.

Showed more since switching to handicaps with blinkers/tongue-tie fitted and he did it well when off the mark at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) last time; visor given a go this time, but a 3lb rise means he has something to find with Shabs on earlier running over this C&D.
