Form & Verdict

Has the same AW strike-rate as Mohareb (5-31); remains competitively handicapped, having gone up just 2lb for last month's 7f success here (beat a subsequent winner); won over 6f on turf in September; has to be feared.

On the downgrade since returning from eight months off and is now 13lb lower than when winning early last year; the drop from 1m should help, given a go in a second-time visor, but others are more likely.

J: Callum Shepherd

Both course wins have come over 1m, but he is just as effective over shorter trips and has dropped 9lb lower than when gaining his latest success at Kempton (6f, Polytrack) just over a year ago; not at his best in four starts since returning from 228 days off in November, though.

Form & Verdict

Record of 5-31 on AW, the most recent win at Southwell three starts ago; however, finished last of nine there latest and remains on career-high mark; those negative factors make him less appealing than tonight's rivals.

Five AW wins, including over 6f here; hasn't been on his game on last two starts at Kempton but he doesn't run many bad races on this track and no surprise if he fares better now he's down a few pounds in the weights.

Came from off the pace to chase home an improver at Chelmsford 18 days ago; his losing run is gathering momentum but he's capable of going well at this level.

Form & Verdict

Record of 5-13 on AW, including a reappearance success in this race last year; deserves this 13lb higher mark having shown very useful form since, most recently second in Group 3 at Dundalk four months ago; respected.

Three-time AW winner for Sir Mark Prescott before being sold for 26,000gns; has rather struggled this year, having undergone a second round of wind surgery, and isn't obviously fancied.
