Took him a long time to get off the mark but he broke his duck at Wolverhampton in December (5f) and he has added further wins at Wolverhampton and Goodwood (both 6f) since; don't expect to see him on the scene until late but he is going the right way and can't be dismissed.

Form & Verdict
Speedy front-runner who completed quick hat-trick on Polytrack in March and lost out only by a nose on that surface at Lingfield this month, despite being unable to get to the front from a wide stall; obvious contender if able to replicate that form here, but this switch to a stiff turf track may not be ideal.

No longer the force of old and it's nearly two years since her last win but she took a good step back in the right direction when keeping-on third at Yarmouth (5f, good to firm) last month and has claims if boosted by today's headgear switch.

Clear signs of a return to form at Yarmouth (5f, good to firm) last month, finishing third; defied a much higher mark at Sandown two summers ago; good chance provided she takes well to change of headgear.

Form & Verdict
Opened account at 16th attempt, with wide-margin success in four-runner Brighton maiden (5.2f, good to firm) ten days ago; the odds-on favourite flopped badly there and the form is of very questionable value but her current handicap mark is workable.
