Form & Verdict
Two wins came on Polytrack and otherwise he's been turned over as favourite eight times, including on three of his last four turf starts; perhaps first-time cheekpieces will make the difference but it's hard to keep making excuses.

Form & Verdict
Two runs on fast turf better than his other eight efforts, latterly when winning well at Windsor last week; will be 1lb lower than under his penalty from the weekend but has to be respected under William Buick.

The switch to front-running did the job in April and his subsequent effort in better company was better than it looked (went off hard enough over 1m6f); has to go on the shortlist switched from cheekpieces to blinkers.

In good form over the winter, winning over 2m at Kempton and over 1m6f at Wolverhampton, personal best when grinding out victory in latter; now makes turf debut after three months off; probably not fully exposed and needs taking seriously.

Best form at Kempton, where he's a winner and was close up in second over 1m4f last time; has form claims, but ran poorly when favourite for a handicap here in November.

One of his better efforts from 4lb out of the handicap, switched from cheekpieces to a visor, last time; he is exposed, though, and Lednikov is clearly his yard's best chance.
