Posted another career best when successful at Newmarket's July meeting (good to soft) off 5lb lower; not so good since, though it was always going to be tough in the Stewards' Cup (80-1) last time.

His wins have come over 5f on fast ground but he has run well on good to soft; not far away under a positive ride at Newmarket last time and has possibilities with a repeat of that.

Capable sprinter, often at a lower level, and he's gone close off similar marks since his Newmarket win in May; rider's claim useful and he should make another bold bid.

Probably wants the ground good or quicker to be at his best, so ran surprisingly well when second on good to soft at Chepstow ten days ago (5f); drawn wider than ideal but not ruled out.

Comes here in good form, following a 6f win at Wolverhampton with a creditable seventh in the Portland on ground that would have been slow enough for him; today's surface more suitable and he's one to take seriously.

Emphatic 6f winner on AW last week but turf mark has suffered and he's now 6lb higher than his latest handicap win on grass, in May 2022; nearly all best form on good or quicker ground, so has a surface query, too.

Had a lot of racing since winning this two years ago off 1lb lower but he's back in the groove and was beaten by only one at the top of his game when denied the hat-trick at Haydock (6f, heavy) two weeks ago; pushed up 3lb since but looks a big player with no strong ground preferences.

Won twice in seven days in September, both over shorter but he's fully effective at 6f; back to the same mark as for his Ascot win and he has shown aptitude for this surface; others appeal more for win purposes though.

Three-time course winner, the latest in last season's Portland (5.5f, soft; awarded the race); won two in a row (5.5f/5f, good to soft/good to firm) last month and, although he's been unplaced on his three runs since, he didn't enjoy a clear run at Ascot last time and is not written off.

Both wins on good to firm ground, the latest at Goodwood in June; soft ground perhaps a factor for modest effort last time and this is his first run over 5f.
