Ex-Irish gelding with a poor strike-rate and his latest run at Nottingham wasn't up to much; could go well if replicating some of this season's form but others are probably safer.

Disappointing since arriving from France (where he won) and, following wind surgery, he didn't impress with his attitude once headed last time; that was in cheekpieces and now goes in blinkers; risky.

Placed a few times but was winning for the first time when coming from well off the pace over 7f here 16 days ago when sporting this headgear for the first time; it looked unlikely for much of the race but he finished well and the second has been in good form (again threatened on Saturday); Hollie Doyle rides again; up just 1lb and 1m will be fine.
