String of near-misses at short prices since handicapping and no surprise to see headgear (first-time blinkers) back on; no doubt he has the ability to win off this mark but the question now is whether he wants to.

Got off the mark with an odds-on win in a Wolverhampton handicap (5f, Tapeta) in January but he's not gone on from that in four runs since; was forced wide over C&D last time but he finished behind Porfin in that race and it took his record to 1-14; others are more persuasive.

Infrequent winner and nothing like as good as he was, hardly surprising given his age; another furlong is probably ideal now and he again only holds outside claims.

She has slipped to a good mark now and there have been more promising signs from her the last twice, finishing a close fourth over this trip in March and shaping as though in better form than the result suggests over 6f last week (ran quite quickly through the mid-part of the race and tied up in the final furlong); could go well at a price.
