Much better on last week's nursery debut, having been gelded, despite hanging right off the home turn from a wide draw round Wolverhampton; he is in off the same mark and has to go on the shortlist.

Best form has been on the AW and now having only his third run on grass; could be well handicapped but this year's efforts leave him with much to prove and soft ground is a complete unknown.

Impressive over 5f at Southwell last winter; only seen three times since and he's been a bit disappointing in two 5f handicaps on Tapeta this winter; edging down the weights and the addition of a hood could help.

No problem with 6f on heavy ground when last seen, despite racing freely (lost a shoe), and there's a question over whether the drop to 5f will suit; he's a brother to three-time C&D winner The Bell Conductor though, which bodes well.

Was on the go early for John Butler, from whom he was picked up for 18,000gns in the summer, and is fully exposed; didn't see out 6f for his new yard after pulling hard back from a break last month (6f) and should be happier back down in trip.

Course winner in 2022 (5.2f, good to firm); has questions to answer after some disappointing AW runs last month but was placed three times on Polytrack in early part of this year (5f/6f) and is well handicapped on that form; cheekpieces removed after one use.

Possibly flattered from the front on his nursery debut in September and didn't build on it when among the favourites last time; stable form is a plus but he's looking exposed now.
