Placed a few times in Bahrain during the winter, creditable second to Parlando latest; form figures at Chester read 116121; has a career-high mark but the return to this venue is highly favourable.

Yet to find his form this term, most recently below-par sixth at York yesterday; however, won this race off 1lb higher last year (on good ground) and has a fighting chance if back to that level.

1m4f winner (off just 1lb lower) a year ago; respectable fourth when dropped back to 1m2f at Haydock (good to firm) last month; gives impression he'll benefit from the first-time headgear, so looks shortlist material.

All six wins on turf but running well on AW lately and probably did well to last for as long as he did when third of 12 at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) ten days ago; races off the same mark and should go well again.

May be sharper with Carlisle reappearance under his belt; however, he's yet to score off a mark this high for current stable and others may prove better handicapped; last three turf wins at Haydock.

9.5f AW win last October and runner-up in two of his four runs since, including over this trip; apprentice good value for a 5lb claim in this company but he's been well beaten in two turf runs (both on slower than good); rated 6lb lower on grass as a consequence.
