Some good runs in the summer on final few starts for Ruth Carr and he won by a short-head on stable debut at Pontefract (6f, good to soft) in September; has won on the Wolverhampton Tapeta and, having shown good pace last time, this first crack at 5f is well worth a go; player.

1-26 and a bit disappointing in a 0-50 classified event over 5f here last time, but she ran well behind the bang-in-form Bonito Cavalo at this venue in her two starts prior to that; return to this trip may suit and each-way claims.

Without a win since 2022; three runs this year, best of those when 22-1 fourth of 11 to Bonito Cavalo here on Friday on her drop back to 6f; needs to build on that but this will be her first attempt at 5f and she's not the percentage call.

Back to winning form at Newcastle (5f, Tapeta) last November and beaten just a nose there (6f) last month, but he didn't seem to stay when attempting 7f at that track last time (around 8l behind Saisons D'Or); look elsewhere.

Not especially solid on 2023 form; however, has won over C&D and can't be dismissed off a handy mark at this level (usually runs in higher grades); good chance if back on song.

Just one win from 17 starts on turf but he made it 2-4 on AW when scoring at Wolverhampton (8.6f, Tapeta; hood added) last month; up 5lb but that was a comfortable win under a positive ride and he's a big player again back at this track.
