Returned from a long layoff during the winter and ran his best race since making his comeback when, back up to 3m, he was second at Doncaster (soft) 18 days ago; ought to stay this longer trip and another step forward would put him in the mix.

C&D winner in 2019 when on the same mark; acts on soft; returned from 14 months off when beaten a long way at Haydock (2m3f, soft) in December; not a huge amount more encouragement at Wetherby (2m3f, soft) latest; return to this trip positive; drops in grade; not written off but revival needed.

Nothing sinister about her high head carriage and the season had gone well until struggling in Listed company last time, which was understandable at odds of 18-1; unproven beyond 1m6f but has each-way claims if getting home.

High head carriage has not prevented a very solid, progressive campaign, in which she showed that she stays 1m6f when second to Sea Sylph at Goodwood latest, but that handicap form leaves her with plenty to find.

Has shown an awkward head carriage but she's been a solid filly (at about 1m4f) this season, with form figures of 2121; made all for 5l win at Leicester (good to firm) most recently; likely to prove as effective back over 1m6f; open to further improvement; shortlisted.

Needs to up his game after two substandard performances but was runner-up off 5lb higher mark on first two starts this season (both 2m7f, soft) and will be dangerous if the first-time cheekpieces have the desired effect.
