Regained the winning thread in 1m2f AW classified event in March; subsequent efforts (over 1m4f) suggest this drop back in trip is ideal; defied higher marks in 2019/2020; not dismissed.

Has lots of placed form while managing only one win; however, the sole success came off 3lb higher over 1m1f at Carlisle last July; nicely handicapped and has possibilities back at this trip.

In good form this season, scoring in good style off 6lb lower on reappearance (1m, heavy) before finishing close third to Do I Dream with a 4lb penalty at Ripon last time (1m, heavy); this stiff 7f should be no problem; should go well again.

Bit of support ahead of his comeback here last month and the return to blinkers, worn for last autumn's Musselburgh win (likes it there), could help; doesn't arrive in any form though.

Down the field here (7f) a fortnight ago but may have needed that first run since last October; he won twice over 1m1f on turf last year (in a visor then blinkers) and is not discounted now back up in distance and back in headgear (albeit cheekpieces haven't had a positive effect previously).

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.

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.
