Dual turf winner but yet to win on the AW despite several solid efforts; behind Chocolate Box here last time but 2lb lower and fair chance he will be on the premises.

Largely consistent at about 2m on AW since November; effective on turf but doesn't appear to be crying out for this drop back to 1m4f; not seen over this trip since last May.

Opened his AW account with a narrow win over 2m at Wolverhampton last month; creditable efforts at Newcastle in both subsequent runs but he looks weighted near best off this mark and this is a step back up in grade; others more persuasive.

Back-to-back wins on Polytrack before finishing last of four, albeit not beaten that far, switched to Tapeta at Southwell last time; went off an even money favourite that day and probably did not run up to his mark; good second here in 2020 so every chance he will be able to return to his best for a stable among the winners.

Fairly useful dual hurdle winner (2m/2m1f) who ran respectably on the Flat (2m, AW) last month; this looks a tough enough assignment on his chase debut and he could be one for another day; his hurdle wins have come on good/good to soft.

Well backed when landing a selling handicap here (1m6f) on his return last month and he ran to a similar level when fourth on his stable debut at Lingfield (2m) 18 days ago; stayed on steadily in that race but he's out of the weights on this step back up in grade and has some work to do.
