Eight-race maiden; returned from a winter break to finish second to an in-form rival over C&D last time (led for a long way); should be all the better for that run; leading contender.

Four-time AW winner (1m6f-2m; all Class 6 handicaps); raced too freely and showed only minor promise on last month's hurdling debut at Ascot (2m3f, good) but today's race is much easier; considered each-way.

Four-time Flat winner, including a successful debut for this yard over 1m6f on the AW last month (then well held next time); however, he plied his trade at a modest level and wouldn't be the obvious answer to this now switching codes.

Unexposed on the AW; good fourth over this trip at Wolverhampton in January and then won over hurdles; lesser AW effort last time; could bounce back with blinkers replacing cheekpieces.

Not prolific but he's consistent and 2m on this surface is up his street; can hit a flat spot so today's stiffer finish (unraced here) should work in his favour.

Form & Verdict

12-race maiden; not particularly consistent and was last of six on first attempt at 1m6f last time (Chelmsford, set a steady gallop), having finished runner-up over 1m4f at Wolverhampton the time before; not a certain stayer on first run at 2m.

Seen mostly on Tapeta and has more to prove on Polytrack, as shown by latest start; 1m6f wins at Wolverhampton this May and June, with a close call at Newcastle on penultimate start, but there's a bit more for him to prove with the 105-day absence.
