Invariably comes to hand early, including winning the last two runnings of this off the same mark as today; was slowly away and pulled hard on his stable debut a fortnight ago and that will have set him up nicely for the hat-trick attempt.

One of the most frustrating maidens in training; managed only eighth at Chepstow yesterday and bare 5f seems to suit him best; hood and cheekpieces replaced by blinkers.

9yo who is not easy to predict but his last win was off 11lb higher at Goodwood (5f, good to soft) last summer and he showed signs of a revival with his third at Bath (5.6f, good) in May; that form has worked out quite well and this return to 6f is no problem; in the mix.
