In good form on Lingfield AW in early part of this year, most notably when winning by 5l over 2m; reverts to the Flat after falling in two consecutive hurdle races and needs to prove he can cope with a mark this high.

Justified favouritism in similar event under Kaiya Fraser at Ponftefract (1m4f, soft) on seasonal debut and that career-best form has received a few boosts since; still unexposed at this trip (was campaigned mainly over further last season) and may well improve again; strong contender.

Ex-Irish 6yo who is 2-5 for new stable this year, the latter win gained on turf return at Goodwood (1m6f, good to soft) three weeks ago; latest 3lb rise does not look excessive, but this will be the quickest ground he has encountered.

Yet to hit top gear after three runs this year but her recent 48l defeat in a soft-ground Chester marathon is not viewed too harshly; won twice on fast ground here last summer (1m2f/1m4f) and has possilities today if the first-time cheekpieces have the desired effect.
