J: Dylan Hogan

T: Daniel & Claire Kubler

Keen-going front-runner who's had a couple of wide stalls to deal with on turf lately, running well at Chester (likes it there) before being taken on and bombing at York; a lot will hinge on how he settles and whether he gets his own way.

Form & Verdict

Progressing nicely before finding this career-high mark beyond him last time at Goodwood (7f, good to firm), fading late on after racing prominently and going for home 2f out; that was only his sixth start so he could well be capable of better, particularly if ridden slightly more conservatively.

Still looking for his first win this year; blinkered the last twice, latterly when running too freely in finishing fourth of five at Newmarket (1m, good to firm; favourite); no headgear this time and he has the inside stall.

Far superior record on the AW than turf; tried to exploit much lower mark on grass at Carlisle (1m, good to firm) 11 days ago but faded to finish last of the five runners after setting he pace; that was his first run for 226 days so he may be sharper here and has been dropped another 2lb; others more convincing, though.

Ended a 16-race losing streak when scoring narrowly at Haydock (1m, good to soft) in June; ran well again when a close fourth over that same C&D last time; feasibly treated but his wide draw will make life tough and he finished in midfield on his only other visit here.
