Added another three wins to her tally last season, including two over C&D (6-13 at the track); recent outing at Lingfield (AW) should have sharpened her up; could face competition for the lead today.

Three-time winner, most recently at Chelmsford in February (1m2f), and no problem with this trip on fast ground; not much margin for error off current mark but likely to give his running.

Close second at Brighton before finishing third in a race not run to suit him over 1m2f here (turf) 12 days ago; might well reverse placings with runner-up Sherpa Trail should this pan out more favourably and he's an assured stayer.

Improved effort to win by a wide margin over 1m here last May; followed up at Lingfield (1m2f, good to firm) two weeks later before two more placed efforts to round off her 3yo campaign; low-key reappearance at Lingfield (AW) last month but these conditions should see her in a better light.

The red-hot favourite underperformed when he broke his duck in a 1m2f novice at Beverley last September (soft) and he has found the handicapper in command since; his best efforts bring him into the reckoning but he will need the drop in trip to squeeze out a bit more.

0-13; peak effort came on good to soft and he would have claims if able to reproduce the form of four of his last five starts (three of which have also been on good to soft or soft); handicapper is giving him a chance; cheekpieces now tried; interesting.
