J: Alex Jary

T: Nigel Tinkler

Smart 2yo; faced a losing battle with the handicapper at three and had a quiet season for Paul Midgley last year; new yard able to exploit a lowly mark, with 5f wins at Ayr and Thirsk followed by a near miss at Haydock last month; came up short in a hot York sprint two weeks ago but this should be more to his taste.

C&D winner as a 2yo and in good form lately, including a success at Thirsk (5f, good) last month; may have been unfortunate not to follow up at Haydock (5f, good) 15 days and although up another 3lb, is still worth a second look.

Front-runner; made all in a C&D handicap last September off 3lb lower; weakened only late on here 17 days ago on his reappearance and could last longer today; this doesn't look overloaded with pace but he'll still need a career best to come out on top.

Has drawn a blank this season but he retains a good chunk of ability, running well at Haydock in June off a 5lb higher mark and beaten under 4l in a hot York sprint latest; capable of a big run but slow starts have been a feature the last twice and that sounds a note of caution.
