Very lightly raced 6yo who returned from a long absence with an easy win in a first-time hood (retained) in a Class 4 at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) 23 days ago; tougher opposition here but he's 9lb well in under a 5lb penalty and has shown promise on turf in the past (various ground); strong claims.

All starts on good to firm or AW; eyecatchingly just 10-1 when wearing first-time cheekpieces for handicap debut at Newmarket four weeks ago, despite that being the Cambridgeshire, and he set the pace near side before ending up eighth of 26, showing his best form; stays 1m2f and lightly raced, so could improve, which is needed.

Enjoyed a fine time of it here during the winter, completing a hat-trick over C&D; probably put up an even better performance when a close fourth of 14 in a 0-95 at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) in April and by no means disgraced when seventh of 19 back on turf at Newbury (1m2f, good) last month; much respected back here.

Progressive handicapper who gained his sixth win when beating Forca Timao in good style at Lingfield (1m2f) in November; another career best when going down narrowly in a strong Newcastle handicap on New Year's Day; another 3lb rise to contend with but this is a weaker race and he may not have reached his ceiling just yet; first run here but he's proven fully effective in two runs on Newcastle Tapeta.

Six wins on the AW since around this time last year, the latest a clearcut success in an apprentice handicap at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) eight days ago having previously been off for 130 days; races off the same mark and is officially 8lb well in, so very much a player.
