Form & Verdict
Left his maiden form behind him when narrowly landing a 1m4f handicap at Salisbury in May (good to firm); looked to find 1m4f on the AW at Lingfield an insufficient test four weeks ago; could take another step forward upped to 2m for the first time.

Form & Verdict
Perhaps not entirely straightforward but he ran his best race so far when flying home for second over 1m6f here last month; that form hasn't been advertised and he is now 5lb higher but there should be more to come at 2m and it wouldn't be wise to underestimate him.

Form & Verdict
Not the force of old but he rolled back the years with a powerful display at Catterick 16 days ago; 6lb higher mark to contend with and it could be enough to find him out.

Showed he retained ability when third at Chester last month but runs either side of that are less convincing; others in this line-up bring stronger claims.

Beat Oasis Prince at Ripon last month and added another win to her tally at Redcar 17 days later; went down fighting at Chester two weeks ago (first-time cheekpieces, retained) and she should be involved once again.

Hasn't found winning easy but it's hard to knock him on the consistency front this year, placed in all five starts from 1m4f-2m; should give it another good go but his limitations look evident.
