C&D winner in November and a couple of near misses to start 2024; latest 8.6f course fourth was no more than respectable but this trip probably more suitable and he has to enter calculations.

Dual AW winner this year (1m/8.6f); should be okay back on fast turf but has been off since below-par run ten weeks ago and probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

Two AW wins this year but has a mixed record since her C&D success in March and has been well held in last two runs; still 3lb higher than for that last win and others are more persuasive; regular headgear removed.

Two wins over further on AW for Simon Pearce this year; fully effective on turf too, as when a close third here (1m, good to firm) on last month's stable debut; not so good at Yarmouth four weeks ago but can't discount completely.

Dual AW winner in early part of this year and placed on both starts since returned to turf, more recently when third on stable debut at Chepstow (1m, good to firm) a fortnight ago; usually ridden very positively; likely to be right in the thick of things again.

Copes well with slow ground and looked a shade unlucky not to make winning seasonal debut at Thirsk (7f, heavy) last month but was well beaten (albeit without usual cheekpieces) on fast ground a fortnight ago and again might find conditions too lively.

Not at best on any of three starts for William Jarvis this year, and was particularly disappointing when returned to turf for latest outing three weeks ago; starts off for Eve Johnson Houghton on a good mark but needs to bounce back and prove he's effective on turf.

Made all off today's basement mark at Chelmsford (1m, AW) in November and is also effective on fast turf but he was out of form when last seen in March and younger rivals have more persuasive profiles here.
