Form & Verdict
Spent the bulk of career as a sprinter but last month's narrow win at Musselburgh (good) was gained over 1m1f and he saw out an extended 1m2f very strongly last season; didn't fire when dropped back to 7f last time but can't be ruled out.

Form & Verdict
Reinvigorated by cheekpieces on recent outings, notably when coming from behind to score at Hamilton (1m1f, good) a fortnight ago; subsequent 4lb rise doesn't look excessive and promising 5lb claimer Ryan Sexton is booked today; ought to be right in the thick of things again.

C&D winner (good) last June but failed to build on that success and he finished tailed off on his reappearance after wind surgery; connections now reach for cheekpieces; plenty to prove.

Form & Verdict
Looked in excellent nick when keeping on strongly for clearcut C&D (soft) success on last month's seasonal debut and will also be suited by today's forecast faster ground but 8lb hike up the weights may prove tough for this 10yo to swallow.
