All seven wins have been on Tapeta, including four over C&D; very well treated on his best form last winter but he's been out of sorts in last eight runs and needs a major revival back from four months off.

Awarded three-runner 7f maiden at Musselburgh last April; has not gone on in handicaps but has come a long way down the weights and his third of five over C&D 20 days ago offered hope; more still needed.

Just got the upper hand over Anif when winning over C&D in September and is weighted to confirm the placings; however she didn't run much of a race here next time and some good subsequent runs have come at 1m; needs more off current mark now back at 7f.

T: Michael Herrington

Veteran who is 0-13 since gaining his fifth course win from 20lb higher over this trip in March last year; ran better than his finishing position would suggest over C&D on penultimate start, but didn't build on it over 1m here last time; opposable on balance.

Belated debut in September and off the mark the following month (6f, turf); only just failed on handicap debut over C&D after Christmas but the step up to 1m didn't suit as well as seemed likely at Southwell since; should still have some potential back on this track.
