Gained both wins over C&D and has made the frame four consecutive times over C&D since returning from a break in December; holds no secrets from the handicapper but is likely to be right in the thick of things again.

Form & Verdict

Four-time course winner, most recently over today's trip three weeks ago; that was probably a career-best effort and he's not yet fully exposed over middle distances; likely contender.

Goes well at this track and ran a solid race over 1m 11 days ago, keeping on to snatch second close home; handicapped to go well and although dropping back to 7f isn't sure to suit, this is likely to be well run.

All four wins at Chelmsford, the most recent off 3lb higher last February; inconsistent since but has a good chance provided he's in top form on return from two-month break.

Placed four times over C&D since winning in first-time visor on turf last summer, most recently when the headgear was removed in December; not seen for three months but current mark is workable if he's fully tuned up.

Won over C&D as a 2yo and gained her first success since when dropped back to today's trip for amateur jockeys' race at Newcastle in January; did that in pretty good style but subsequent 5lb rise demands more from her.

Eight-race maiden who was seemingly aided by cheekpieces when runner-up on consecutive starts for Paul & Oliver Cole this winter (1m/9.4f); went to the sales after a lesser effort six weeks ago but the existing owners bought him back for 19,000gns; player if back on song for new stable.
