J: Silvestre De Sousa

T: Liam Bailey

Front-runner who won five times on turf last season (7f/1m); probably needed his return from seven months off at Newcastle (7f, Tapeta) 11 days ago, but a concern that he is 1-21 on the AW and has been well held in both starts on Polytrack.

Enjoyed a revival and won five times on turf last season (7f-1m), including his last three races; also effective on Tapeta but a 201-day break may have checked his momentum.

J: Daniel Tudhope

Second in this last year and he's twice made all over 1m here this season; arrives on a hat-trick following two wins at Beverley (7.4f, heavy/good to firm) and he'll be tough to reel in if his fine form continues.
