Step back in right direction at Chester (7.5f, good) last Saturday; likely player if building on that effort, as he remains well handicapped on best form; defied a 3lb higher mark at Hamilton (1m) last June.

Generally disappointing since bagging a good prize here (8.5f, good to firm) on Oaks day in June but is 1lb below that mark now and took good step back in right direction when fourth at Ayr (1m2f, good to soft) ten days ago; can't be ruled out.

All wins at 7f-8.5f on good to firm, the most recent off 1lb higher at Epsom in June; largely below that form since and has a question to answer back up in distance.

Fifth in this race last year and sixth in the C&D Cambridgeshire last September; well beaten in the Lincoln at Doncaster on reappearance but never better than when second of 17 to Hafeet Alaain here (1m, good) 18 days ago, having to wait for space over 1f out before running on well to be beaten a nose; has the same mark today (due to go up by only 1lb, as it was a blanket finish) and is firmly in the mix.

Ex-French 5yo who has form figures of 1323 (all over 7f on AW/turf) for new yard, most recently third in competitive field at Thirsk (good); major player provided he's as effective at this new trip and takes well to first-time blinkers.

Began 2023 with a pair of AW wins, notably the Lincoln Trial at Wolverhampton (RPR 106); also ran a fine race at Newcastle in June (1m) and this month's fifth in a 1m Listed race at Kempton was another fair effort; stamina for today's trip not assured but he won't be far away if it sparks anything extra from him.

Well exposed and has a modest strike-rate, so it's no surprise that two defeats have followed his Redcar success (1m, soft) in April; opposed off a difficult mark in this useful grade.
