Yet to add to his AW novice win in 2021 and didn't fire when last in action but is generally pretty consistent, and lost out only narrowly off today's mark at Nottingham (5f, good to firm) two starts ago.

Two C&D wins last summer and he made a pleasing return to action at Southwell last month (5f); lacklustre effort back at Southwell 19 days ago but he's still feasibly treated and the return to this track may help, as would the forecast rain.

No longer the force of old but ended a losing streak with fairly comfortable success at Ffos Las (6f, good) this month and kept on well for close third from stall 14 over C&D a week ago; 1lb lower and has better draw today; major player.

Dual Kempton AW winner (6f/7f) last November, but as a result is 14lb higher than when gaining his last turf success at Ffos Las (6f, good) last summer; probably needed last month's Windsor reappearance (6f, good to firm), but still well down the pecking order.

Came from off the pace to win off reduced mark at Brighton (5.2f, soft) last month and was forced to wait for room before keeping on well for fourth over C&D a week ago; reliant on better luck today but will be dangerous if all goes to plan.

9yo who is not easy to predict but his last win was off 11lb higher at Goodwood (5f, good to soft) last summer and he showed signs of a revival with his third at Bath (5.6f, good) in May; that form has worked out quite well and this return to 6f is no problem; in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Old-timer who has poor strike-rate in recent years; very nearly made all off today's mark under Tom Marquand at Wolverhampton (5f, AW) in January but wasn't quite in same form on next two AW starts and has fitness to prove after 163-day break.
