Five C&D wins, the latest by a short head off 3lb higher last March; ultra-consistent during the winter, finishing a close fourth (Saaheq third) here seven weeks ago; likely to have his day again soon, but a low draw serves to temper enthusiasm.

Running well and this surface suits but it may be significant she's nearly always kept to the other Tapeta tracks now and wasn't at her best over C&D in October; probably needs a bit more than latest Newcastle defeat.

Seems versatile regarding trip/ground and is now 1lb below the mark from which he won by 5l at Musselburgh (7f, good to soft) in May; suffered dip in form during the summer but made some good late headway in C&D event won by One More Dream a fortnight ago and might be coming to the boil again.
