Back with his old yard after a poor spell in Ireland and returned to form here last time; can only look well handicapped now and won't mind the drop from 7f, so his claims are obvious.

Did well in his first stint with this yard, winning three AW handicaps and achieving a BHA rating of 71; had a miserable time of things in Ireland last year but he has returned to Kevin Philippart De Foy off a paltry mark; well backed on his return to Britain last month but never featured after a slow start; too soon to write him off.

Frequent slow starter but she made her breakthrough (tenth attempt) with a last-gasp win at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) last month and was only narrowly denied on the step back up to 6f at Lingfield (Polytrack) last time; 2lb higher on this belated turf debut but has possibilities if she can transfer her form to this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Form of C&D second in November has taken a few knocks and his last two efforts need plenty of improving on (caught wide both); new headgear and Luke Morris replacing 7lb claimer need to give him a lift.
