Effective elsewhere but this track really plays to his strengths, winning for the fourth time over C&D when powering clear three weeks ago; didn't get a clear run through one week later but still looked in top form; more appealing than most in here.

Has been running over shorter trips but he is a winner over this far and last time was a return to form at Southwell; perhaps better on the AW but couldn't rule out.

Lost his way from the end of June onwards until staging a partial revival at Newcastle latest (6f), rallying close home; losing run of 30 is off-putting.

Versatile trip-wise having been placed at up to 1m5f, while his latest win came over 6f here in December; rather in and out since and he failed to beat a rival at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) six days ago; others safer.

Began the year with two easy wins on AW (6f and 7f); his form has dipped the last twice but he's back down the weights and 6f on slow ground won't faze him; one to consider.

Not out of the first four in her four handicaps, finishing second in three of them; well related and should be a player in her first classified event; fine at 7f or 1m.

Only beaten 3l on his handicap debut here last winter (7f) and perhaps failed to appreciate the Fibresand when not so good next time; gelded during his long absence and well worth a market check.
