Showed improved form with two wins here (8.5f) last month, then was hindered by wide draw and difficult position at Kempton (1m) in hat-trick attempt; gives impression she'll stay this new trip; may have more to offer back at this course; remains of interest.

Just one win from his first 28 starts but he's won three of his last seven and went close in his bid for a double at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last time; this return to Tapeta is no problem and he remains feasibly treated on his best form; respected.
