Won easily at Kempton (1m3f, AW) in June on his second start back from an absence; has gone back up 8lb but this 7yo remains very well treated on his old French turf form; one to be interested in.

Midfield finish in the Cambridgeshire five weeks ago wasn't a bad run (beaten less than 5l); 17lb higher than for his easy C&D win in June but he's still not fully exposed on AW; Wiliam Buick back on board today.

Rejuvenated this year and won two in a row (1m3f AW/1m2f, good) before solid efforts in defeat on his last three starts; there remains mileage in his mark judged on his 2020 form but if he's to win this hot race he'll need to produce a bigger performance than he's managed on his last few starts; tongue-tie refitted.

Lost a lot of ground at the start at Chester three weeks ago so comes with a risk attached; however, she ran okay in the circumstances and was a good second at Sandown (1m2f, good) two starts ago; has won on soft ground and can be in the mix if getting away on terms.

Faded on sole previous attempt at 1m2f but she's posted two strong finishes over 1m this summer, most recently when getting up late at Newmarket (good); this lightly raced 3yo is open to further improvement now back up in trip, provided conditions suit (well beaten on good to soft last month).
