Form & Verdict

All eight wins have come over 8.6f-1m4f around here and, having dropped to a mark just 1lb higher than for his last success, he returned to form when second of ten over C&D 12 days ago; major player if building on that.

His first nine wins came at Wolverhampton (8.6f-1m4f) but he scored at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) 13 days ago; that was a very narrow success but he's only 2lb higher here and is respected back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

C&D win came when dead-heating in a match in February of last year; much lower in the weights than when placed in three consective starts on the AW between August and October, but recent efforts raise serious doubts as to whether he can take advantage.

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.

Form & Verdict

Six of his seven wins have come at this venue and he only found one too good over C&D last month; not totally disgraced at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) six days later and the return here is a positive.

Eight-time course winner, mainly over 8.6f, who rarely goes this far these days; can pull hard, so will want to get some cover early from the outside stall, and a below-par effort last time will need forgiving too.

Has gone close over C&D but all three wins have come over 7f, the latest from 1lb lower just over a year ago; was returning from seven months off when well behind a couple of these back here a fortnight ago, but needs to leave that effort well behind.

Five wins, the latest of which came over 1m2f at Nottingham (Class 6) last summer; went close behind the in-form Sunset In Paris at Wolverhampton (9.5f) last time, and it's notable that Rossa Ryan (rode that winner) now takes the mount; major chance.
