More encouraging signs from him of late, bumping into a useful rival at Haydock and then putting in a solid shift in the Ayr Silver Cup last week; should be capable of a prominent display.

Just one win in Britain but he has plenty of ability and today's drop into a Class 6 will be in his favour; returning to 6f no bad thing either; one to be interested in.

His last three wins have come over C&D, including this race last year off a 5lb lower mark; defied this mark here in June and he has faced some tough assignments since; no surprise at all to see him return to his best today.

His last three wins have come over this trip at Ripon; well handicapped on last season's best but he underperformed at Ripon, albeit over 5f, when last seen three weeks ago; down in class today and one to consider; can blow it at the start.

Stays 6f but his last five wins have come over 5f; respectable efforts in Racing League events on his last two starts but a bit more is required to come out on top here.

Kicked off his season with two 5f wins on good ground (one here) and he didn't run badly when third of 11 behind a well-handicapped opponent at Southwell in July; only midfield in the Ayr Gold Cup last week in a first-time tongue-tie; on a handy mark but others appeal more.

Seven times a course winner, most recently when justifying favouritism in a Class 4 here last month; always behind in the Ayr Silver Cup last week but he should prove a more potent force today.

Doesn't look quite as good as he was but still got the job done at Catterick in June (6f, good to firm) and he has run well in defeat on his last three starts; perhaps vulnerable at this level nowadays.

Two 5f wins at Navan when trained by Kieran Cotter (good and good to firm), more recently in first-time blinkers in July; involved in a duel for the lead on Thursday's stable debut and paid the price in the straight; something to prove over 6f too.

Well treated on his win at Lingfield (5f, good to soft) for David O'Meara in September but he's been beaten 8l or more in seven runs for his current yard; has a lot to prove back up in trip and all of his wins have been at 5f; visor removed.

Five poor efforts since leaving David O'Meara and there's again no sign of the headgear sported for his last four wins; Kuwait City would look his yard's best chance unless the market says otherwise.
