Doesn't seem straightforward but he won in good style at Ayr (2m4f, soft) in January and has run well to be placed the next twice (2m6f, good/soft); every chance he'll again be thereabouts; a tongue-tie is added.

This is her first run since a below-par performance over C&D in November but the good to soft ground may not have suited, and she'd previously produced a string of solid efforts on good going; the weather forecast is in her favour and she returns with her trainer's horses running well.

Had a modest strike-rate and he was pulled up at Kelso last month; however, he was reportedly unsuited by the testing ground and he was running well in defeat previously; sole win came over C&D last January and he certainly has a chance if bouncing back to form.

Hasn't really threatened when third over 3m/3m1f the last twice, including here, but Catterick 24 days ago was his first outing since November and he could build on that performance now back in cheekpieces; prolific (chiefly on the Flat) after joining this yard last year and he's not ruled out.
