Led close home to get off the mark at Lingfield (1m4f; off 2lb lower) in August and wasn't beaten far here in September; record when fresh isn't great but she's not without hope.

Progressive for current yard; best recent form is at 1m4f (went close here two runs ago) and, although a winner over 9.4f here, dropping back to that trip seemed to find him out four weeks ago; thereabouts.

Best form so far on Tapeta including all four wins, but has generally been disappointing since returning from eight months off in December and failed to beat a rival at Southwell (1m3f) last time; down in grade but enough to prove.

Only 1lb higher than for his 1m4f win here last March; low-key return to action (after 232 days off) at Lingfield four weeks ago but he took a good step forward with his reappearance behind him last winter and the same is quite possible here; each-way claims.

9yo who's probably best know for his four wins at Brighton, latest last October (1m4f, good to firm); has one piece of soft-ground form there (2021) but didn't show in three starts here to start his 2023 campaign and no shock if this run is similar.

Off the mark when scoring over C&D (good to soft; 10-1) in April but he's not gone on from that and pulled up back here on his return last month; only 1lb higher than for his win but overall record now stands at 1-15 and others are more convincing.

Came good over hurdles with convincing C&D (good to soft) win in April but wasn't quite in same form on next two outings; has fitness to prove after 165-day absence and tends to race too freely; others appeal more.

Achieved very little in a handful of starts for Paul Webber at 3; also down the field in two comeback outings for new yard in recent weeks, although he did race well clear for a long way over 1m4f latterly; 2f shorter trip now should help; in shrewd hands and definitely worth a look in the betting.
