Justified market support to win a 1m handicap at Bath three weeks ago in decisive fashion; that was just a lowly 0-52 event but the runner-up has since run well and the form looks okay; he'll need to improve again to defy the 6lb rise but it's not out of the question.

Justified favouritism over C&D on his handicap debut in February in decisive fashion; well held upped to 1m4f two weeks later but he resumed his progress back at 1m last month, again keeping on strongly to win; 4lb rise not enough to push him out of Class 6 company and he's the one to beat with Oisin Murphy taking over.

Probably best to ignore Brighton last time as she reared at the start and was always behind (trainer's representative reported she was unsuited by the undulating track); her close fourth over 7f here on her handicap debut last month wasn't a bad run though and she is bred to stay today's trip.

Ran well in three novice events on Polytrack (RPR of 72 over C&D on second start) but he has cut no ice in handicaps since; has dropped 5lb after a low-key turf run last month though and possible the return to AW and drop into a Class 6 could revive his fortunes.
