Six of his seven wins (three round here) have come over 1m and he wants a good test over this trip; is capable but has lacked consistency in recent times and there's little margin for error off this mark (3lb above his highest winning rating).

Yet to add to last summer's 2yo maiden win (7f, good) and he's been well held in last two runs (1m4f/1m2f); a hood didn't make much difference last time and he needs a visor to work on this drop back to 1m.

Well beaten in one previous AW start over this C&D, though that was on his debut; 3lb lower than when winning at Thirsk (1m, good) last May and although off for seven months, he has run well fresh in the past; Streak Lightning looks the stable's main hope, but still worth a market check.

Took advantage of a reduced mark at Beverley (7.4f, good to firm) in June but he's lost his way in last two starts; now drops back in grade but both his wins have been in Class 5 events and he has a very patchy profile; opposable.

3yo who seems versatile ground-wise; got back on the scoresheet at Leicester (7f, soft) on his penultimate run before a fair effort in a tactical race at Hamilton (8.3f, heavy) last time; a 4lb rise has now kicked in but he still looks on a workable mark and has claims if he gets some luck.
