Has done most recent racing over 7f but is fine at this trip, as when third over C&D three weeks ago; was below-par the only other time he's worn a visor rather than the usual cheekpieces but has claims otherwise.

Dual Tapeta winner who had a near miss over C&D last month but he's not easy to predict and was never involved at Newcastle (first-time visor) last time; regular cheekpieces return but he has a wide draw and comes with risks attached.

Finished well to snatch second at Brighton (7f, good to firm; well backed) and plenty went wrong at Chepstow where he was slowly away and then pulled hard; lightly raced on the AW but has a big run in him.

Returned from 471 days off with a creditable second at Chelmsford (7f, AW) in November but he's been disappointing in two runs at Wolverhampton (8.6f) since; this drop back in trip looks a positive but he's now 0-11 and comes with risks attached; blinkers removed after one use.

Recorded her first win since 2018 when scoring at 18-1 in a Wolverhampton handicap (7f, AW) early this month; that race set up for her closing style and things didn't pan out so favourably at same venue yesterday (never dangerous); chance partly depends on whether she gets a strong pace to aim at.
