Slightly disappointing at Perth three weeks ago but was in good form beforehand, notably when winning at Musselburgh (3m, soft); also suited by this track and has a fighting chance if back on song.

Led late on to deny Red Missile in a 3m soft-ground handicap at Musselburgh in February and again finished ahead of that rival when fourth in a Class 2 on his return visit; having a solid season and likely to be in the mix.

In good form back hurdling and although just a remote third behind runner-up Lock Down Luke over C&D in January he found a late spurt to deny Red Missile close home back here last month (soft); similar effort would see him involved.

Runner-up here (2m4f, good to soft) in December then went one better here (2m4f, soft); the return to Musselburgh could be a plus but he was pulled up at Newcastle (2m6f, soft) last time and is unproven at this trip.

Won over C&D (good to soft) in November on his second handicap start and returned to winning ways at Kelso (2m, heavy) last month; this versatile, progressive 6yo could continue to improve and he has to be respected.

Good season last term included two wins (one here) and culminated in his second in a series final at this track (3m, good to soft); however, this season he's followed a respectable reappearance with two backward steps; well treated if surging back to his best.

Won on stable debut at Newcastle (2m4f, good) in November and again ran well when third of 15 at Doncaster (3m, good) last month; she faded last time but may be able to stay the trip at this speedy track; ground conditions may be a more important factor (all three wins have come on good going).

Moderate form in maiden/novice hurdles at around 2m earlier in the year; returned from a break to score when upped to 2m3f (good to soft) for his handicap debut over C&D last month, when he had plenty in hand; up 7lb for that but may still be well treated; big player.
