Reliable 1m2f specialist whose win at York three weeks ago came against just five rivals but represented career-best form given how comfortably he scored; up 5lb in a much more competitive race but needs respect.

Does not look good enough if today's rivals are on song but her close third of 11 in the Listed Galtres at York (back up to 1m4f, good to firm) on latest start was career-best form and she ran on well from off the pace having been checked over 2f out.

No shortage of races but never better than when winning a Racing League contest at Chepstow (1m2f, good to soft) last week, reeling in the leader late on with the first two 5l clear; has 5lb penalty but also the services of a top 3lb claimer; should go well again.

Made all for back-to-back wins on good to firm at Brighton (1m; under Gina Mangan) and York (1m1f); always close up when completing the hat-trick on good to soft at Carlisle (1m) soon afterwards; he's on a roll but has had seven attempts at 1m2f (latest last September) and not been at his best.

Two wins last September (1m2f, good to soft) and even better in these cheekpieces this season, making all over 1m4f at Newmarket (good) and Haydock (good to firm) in recent months; the winning run was ended in the Old Newton Cup back at Haydock but he progressed again in third; a must for the shortlist under Frankie Dettori.

All three wins have come first time out (2020, 2021 and 2022) over 1m2f at Yarmouth on good to firm, making all in small fields on last two occasions; failed to repeat the feat in a much more demanding Newmarket race on this year's return, but third at Epsom on Oaks day was creditable; likely to find this race a bit too competitive.
