Ran well when second at Hamilton last month (5f, soft); less good over 6f here next time and then failed to reward strong market support at Newcastle nine days ago; rider takes off a useful 7lb and a tongue-tie is now tried; yard run two.

In good form last month, winning a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton and following up over C&D in fine style; only fourth at Southwell (6f) in his hat-trick bid, racing closer to the stands' rail than the three to beat him; should make another bold bid back at 5f.

J: Brandon Wilkie

T: Stella Barclay

Most wins have come over 5f and still does the majority of his racing at that trip, but he's fine with 6f; has come more than a stone down the weights in the past year and been expensive to follow, so others appeal more; returns from three months off.

Down the field in three novice runs for John Quinn in the spring; improved in low-grade handicaps for new yard, following a third over C&D with a breakthrough win here 12 days ago; this is a stronger race but she's bred to be useful and there should be more to come as she gathers experience; proven on soft; key player.

One of the success stories of the winter, reeling off a five-timer here (5f-7f) in January and February; winning spree came to an end when second past the post (subsequently demoted to third having bumped Pockley) but it was still a sound run and he's one to consider.
