No better than fifth in his first three runs but he found improvement on handicap debut when a close second at Thirsk (6f, good) in May; on same mark back from a short break and he's an interesting contender with cheekpieces added.

7-15 on the AW and 0-7 on turf, albeit he has been beaten less than a length on three occasions; 3lb rise for latest narrow Southwell success puts him back on a career-high mark, so he will need to be at his very best to defy it.

Opened his account in 6f handicap at Wolverhampton (Tapeta; tongue-tie added) last month; went very close there next time before getting back on the scoresheet at Lingfield (6f, Polytrack) two weeks ago; 4lb higher but he's on a roll and should make another bold bid.

Unplaced in his first five starts but he came good when justifying favouritism in Kempton handicap (6f, AW) last month; that was a narrow success but he knuckled down well to reel in the long-time leader and is open to more progress off only 2lb higher; big player.

Went close off 10lb higher on his handicap debut at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) in November, but it's been downhill most of the way since and he was beaten 11l at Hamilton last time; now returns to sprinting but he's 0-11 and others are more convincing; hood removed.

Just the one win from 29 starts but it was a similar race to this on AW in February; not at his best when last seen in April and rain would be a concern (unraced on slower than good and once a non-runner due to soft ground).

Left her debut form well behind when landing a Bath maiden (5f, good to firm) last month but she was a well-held fourth of five when upped to 6f at Windsor last time; still unexposed but that was a tame effort last time and she needs to kick on again on her handicap/AW debut.
