Won this race in 2021 and fifth of six (raced freely) in 2023; it's more than two years since he last won (also C&D) and he's now a 9yo but his C&D third two months ago showed again that he should not be far away.

Smart stayer, dual Group 3/Listed winner and placed three times at Group 1 level; however, he was a short-head behind Earlofthecotswolds in a similar contest over C&D early last month (meets him on the same terms) and has since finished last of 14 in a valuable handicap in Riyadh (1m7f, good to firm); good chance if bouncing back.

Progressive Flat stayer in younger days (best RPR 100) and although it's been a long and winding road over hurdles he's been in career-best form of late with 2m wins in a maiden at Leopardstown and a Limerick handicap (heavy); this will need another step forward but that's not ruled out.

Record of 7-14 on AW, including a success in this race for the last two years; runner-up at Newcastle on return from layoff then justified short odds at Wolverhampton (beat Earlofthecotswolds) last month; very useful performer in this sphere and again commands respect.

Nine AW wins, the most recent in this event 12 months ago when it was still a conditions race; has slipped to an attractive mark but the veteran has a doubt over current form, having posted two duck eggs this year; perhaps on the wane.
