Back to form with a close second over C&D (good) in June but he wasn't at the same level here on his next run and was tailed off at Doncaster last time; has quite a bit to prove again and his last win was 14 months ago.

Promising fifth on Kempton debut (1m3f, AW) in December 2021 but he missed last year and has struggled in two runs for Mick Appleby this season; still unexposed and now switches to a handicap but he needs a transformation on this drop to 1m.

Form & Verdict

Five-time AW winner who is 1-13 on turf; usually comes from off the pace and he's run respectably here (1m/7f) in his last two runs; this step back up in trip should suit and he could be dangerous if he gets some luck.

0-12 but she's a consistent type who has had some close calls on AW this summer and was a fair fourth back on turf at Lingfield (1m1f) last time; travelled well for a long way in that race and she has claims back in trip; last run was on soft but she's versatile ground-wise.
