Good step forward when getting on top final strides at Chelmsford (handicap debut over 6f); couldn't land a blow from the rear off this 2lb higher mark over C&D a fortnight ago but can be more competitive if they go harder here.

Three narrow wins on Polytrack for Roger Varian between July and September, including over C&D; didn't enjoy a smooth passage when behind three of these at Chelmsford (7f, Polytrack) last month, since when he has changed hands for 17,000gns; needs to get back on track.

Has won three of his last four starts, over 6f here and 7f at Kempton and Lingfield; has scraped home each time but would have won by further at the latter track if he hadn't needed to be switched late on; up 4lb and drawn widest but every chance he can continue on the upgrade.

Decent fifth on debut over C&D then unlucky not to win at Chelmsford (second); same RPR as that at Doncaster next time before bitterly disappointing when sent off favourite for handicap debut at Leicester; still looks raw and gelding operation could be the making of him; cheekpieces applied.

Handy sort who won twice over C&D early last year and added another success at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta; first-time cheekpieces) in September; third of eight behind a thriving rival at Southwell (7f, Tapeta; first-time blinkers) 13 days ago showed that she remains in form and a player from 1lb lower.

The addition of cheekpieces saw her gain a third career success when digging deep at Wolverhampton (7f) in September; four of her five subsequent runs have been solid enough but she remains 3lb above that successful mark; first-time blinkers (replacing cheekpieces) need to give her something extra.

Dual course winner since switching to current stable in the autumn (7f/1m; made all both times), and posted career-best performance when very close second to Once Adaay over C&D last month; needs to find even more to overcome subsequent 3lb rise, though, and had an off day on latest outing.

String of solid efforts this year, mainly from the front, bar one excusable blip over C&D; stays this far but it's possible to argue he's happier over a bit shorter now and a further 3lb rise for last weekend's Chelmsford near-miss means he needs more again.

Well-bred gelding who showed some promise in his four 2yo runs, including when fourth of 11 in Newmarket nursery (1m1f, soft) on final start; respectable fifth back in maiden company on his recent 1m Bath reappearance; he's entitled to come on for that outing and the way he went through the race suggests he should be fine back at 7f.
