Entitled to have come on for his comeback (race didn't pan out his way over 1m; will be happier back down in trip) and the booking of William Buick (0-2 for the yard) draws the eye; runs mainly on the AW but did go close at Leicester last summer.

Will always need some luck given his run-style but he's a proven winner who hasn't found races run to suit of late; tonight's bigger field should help and he's fairly treated again (4lb lower than when last successful).

Cheekpieces have made the difference, with five AW wins over 6f to his name in the past ten months; shapes as though this extra furlong will be within range now but he returns to turf on a career-high mark.

7-15 on the AW and 0-7 on turf, albeit he has been beaten less than a length on three occasions; 3lb rise for latest narrow Southwell success puts him back on a career-high mark, so he will need to be at his very best to defy it.

Back to just below his last winning mark (one of two occasions he's been ridden by Luke Catton), having not taken to a first-time visor latest; lacks consistency and boasts a poor strike-rate but it wouldn't surprise at all to see him pop up.

Races almost exclusively on the AW these days, mainly over another furlong; goes well fresh, which is a bonus back from over three months off, but he lost his way early in the year and has to bounce back.

Four-time AW winner who scored off 10lb higher at Southwell (1m) last November but he's not finished closer than sixth in his seven runs since; turf record now stands at 0-13 and he has questions to answer at this new trip; tongue-tie added.

Currently 2-2 on turf, both over C&D last autumn, latterly off a 6lb lower mark; the cheekpieces are back today, having been left off for his AW comeback (1m), and he should step up on that effort.
