Justified favouritism with a narrow success in C&D handicap (on good ground) at the Craven meeting on reappearance, taking form figures here to 23121 and overall strike-rate to 9-30; went very close in Listed grade last October and should go well again; better than ever.

Two 6f wins on fast ground last season and only 1lb higher than for the second; looked a bit rusty on this month's reappearance at Southwell (5f) but he stayed on to take third and returning to 6f will help; effective on good to soft as a 2yo but drying conditions would help.

Likeable sprinter whose 6f wins at Doncaster (good to soft) and Ascot (good to firm) last season were deserved after several near misses, and he was running well when badly hampered at York on his final start in October; may need a career best to defy top weight but that's not out of the question.

Likeable, progressive sprinter whose 6f wins at Doncaster (good to soft) and Ascot (good to firm) were deserved after several near misses; perhaps resented the blinkers when down the field in the Ayr Gold Cup three weeks ago and no surprise if he bounces back to form with the headgear removed.
