Narrowly made a successful handicap debut at Yarmouth (7f, good) in May but a rise in his mark seems to have restricted him since, albeit he wasn't beaten far when last of four at Newmarket (7f, good to firm) last time; a bit more is needed.

Handy sort who is 2-2 over C&D, those wins coming at the start of a five-timer last summer; rather in-and-out since returning in May and has undergone wind surgery since a poor effort at Haydock (6f, good) last month; best watched for now.

Free-goer who is 2-7 over hurdles, the latter win gained in first-time hood on handicap debut at Sedgefield (2m1f, good) in February; both subsequent runs (one on soft ground) were perfectly respectable but it seems that others in this line-up have more potential.

Won over 6f here as a 3yo, but his six AW successes in the meantime have all come over 6f/7f at Newcastle; returns from three months off and has no great record fresh, so best to look elsewhere; stable also runs Daafr.
