Veteran who is a nine-time winner but he's been quiet since his last success at Thirsk (6f, good) in September and was last of 12 at Wolverhampton last time; makes little appeal.

Form & Verdict

Produced to lead in the shadow of the post when successful at Chelmsford (7f, classified; 22-1; off a 280-day absence) early in the year; has failed to match that form since, albeit with not much to find with Closeness (from Kempton); it's possible that cheekpieces can assist.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't won since early last year (6f here; from 11lb higher mark) but was well backed when an encouraging third at Southwell (7f, classified) 12 days ago; has worn headgear only once - runner-up in cheekpieces - so it will be fascinating to see if these blinkers can work the oracle.

Went mightily close to shedding the maiden tag at Kempton (1m, classified; on second start for the Kublers) early last month; no further progress since but, given her positive run style, this drop back in trip is potentially worth exploring.
