Last two wins for Julie Camacho came over 7f on Tapeta including here; still 2lb below his last winning mark and didn't shape badly on stable debut after four months off at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) ten days ago, but more will be needed if he is to win this.

Three of his four wins have come here (7f/1m) and he may have been unfortunate not to finish closer when third of nine over C&D a week ago (form since boosted); remains off his last winning mark, but this established hold-up performer may not get the race run to suit.
