Right back to form when beaten just over 2l over 2m5f at Kempton (good to soft) a month ago and might have gone close without late interference; that form now looks really strong with last week's Aintree winner Kateira one placed behind, while the fifth (Harbour Lake) and sixth (West Balboa) have also run races of distinction since; well handicapped on that and other form in the past.

Won three in a row last season (2m3f/2m4f, good/good to soft); 0-7 and mixed form since but he took a step back in the right direction when fifth of 16 at Ascot (2m3f, good to soft) last month and may build on that.

J: Freddie Gingell

Was on the crest of a wave when completing a hat-trick in this race (good to soft) 12 months ago off a 3lb higher mark than today's; hit and miss since but he was far from disgraced when ninth behind Jay Jay Reilly in the Lanzarote at Kempton five weeks ago, fading after having a clear lead turning for home; Freddie Gingell claims a handy 5lb; must be considered.

Formerly very smart and belatedly returned to winning ways in a first-time visor (with tongue-tie returning) over 2m3f at Market Rasen (good); only 3lb higher but that was three months ago and trainer turns to more new headgear now; no certainty to be as good again but strong contender if he is.

Quirky customer who tends to idle when in front and had almost stopped to a walk before holding on to win three-runner chase at Newton Abbot (2m5f, good) last month; remains on a workable mark, though, and can make his presence felt; has had wind surgery since last time.

T: Gary Moore

Sandown winner in January (1m7f) who followed up here (2m3f; narrowly beating Scarface; again soft) the following month but there are always mistakes in him and he hadn't jumped well before coming to grief back at Sandown when well held; even with a trouble-free round he might be too high in the weights now.

He has the odd issue with his jumping but he's been progressive over fences this season and has won his last two, over C&D (soft) and at Plumpton (2m3f, soft); did well to beat Scarface last time following a final-fence mistake and a 5lb rise could underestimate him, granted a clear round.

Has stamina to prove today and is not one for maximum faith, having virtually refused to race three outings ago and looked reluctant to line up last time; however, he drew clear on the run-in to open his chasing account at Leicester (2m4f, soft) three weeks ago and today's 4lb higher mark ought to be manageable.
