Unbeaten in two starts under Gavin Sheehan, both by narrow margins at Ffos Las; produced late each time so hard to say how much he had in hand but obvious contender up a total of just 7lb for the wins.

Had been threatening to win and did so in style at Stratford this month (2m6f), beating a subsequent scorer; looked good in the process but has been hit with a 9lb rise for his pains; still worth considering.

Came good with clearcut win at Stratford (2m6f, good to firm) in June and was very close second in quite valuable contest at Market Rasen (2m4f, good to soft) the following month; good claims if judged on that evidence but needs to bounce back from a poor run a fortnight ago.

Maiden; not much promise in novices and was beginning to struggle on last month's handicap debut at Newton Abbot when unseating; 50-1 for that and would need to see inspired support to make him of any interest.

Winner in Ireland (for Joseph O'Brien) two years ago; stable debut and first start for 17 months when sixth at Perth in April; will need to derive benefit from that if he's to figure strongly.

2m2f maiden winner in Ireland when with Joseph O'Brien; potentially well handicapped but lightly raced these past two years and didn't show much in two runs for Christian Williams; new headgear for this return from another absence and would need to see some confidence behind him.

Back from seven months off with a Stratford win last week (2m2f+); not yet proven at this trip but it shouldn't be a problem and no penalty for the win; ahead of the game, therefore, and live claims if he can repeat the effort.
