Five wins, the latest of which came over 1m2f at Nottingham (Class 6) last summer; went close behind the in-form Sunset In Paris at Wolverhampton (9.5f) last time, and it's notable that Rossa Ryan (rode that winner) now takes the mount; major chance.

C&D winner last spring but two attempts since weren't such a success, albeit in and among a moderate run of form; is in better heart now, ridden patiently and from the front, and looks very likely to be involved.

Just one win from his first 28 starts but he's won three of his last seven and went close in his bid for a double at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last time; this return to Tapeta is no problem and he remains feasibly treated on his best form; respected.

Maiden after 20 starts but has been involved in some tight finishes, including over C&D; ran right up to her best at Bath recently (1m2f) and looks sure to go well providing she holds her form with the regular hood left off.

6 yo Gelding

OR: 56

Form & Verdict

Multiple AW winner who won with authority over the extended 1m here in April and was having only his third run on turf when never involved at Pontefract last month (well held in both previous attempts); this trip has looked the outer limit of his stamina in the past.

Eight-time course winner, mainly over 8.6f, who rarely goes this far these days; can pull hard, so will want to get some cover early from the outside stall, and a below-par effort last time will need forgiving too.

Has done all his winning on turf but lost out only by a head in 1m2f Polytrack handicap at Chelmsford in November and his fourth over that C&D a few days later was also a decent effort; today's trip-and-surface combination will also suit; likely contender.

Modest form in qualifying runs but not disgraced on handicap debut back from 11 months off at Kempton last month (1m; first-time hood, discarded), initially failing to pick up but doing better work in the closing stages; looks sure to appreciate the return to further; every chance.
