Five wins in all but enduring a disappointing season and there's been little sign of turning things around; reservations for now despite dropping in the weights; no real significance in the return of cheekpieces.

All six wins on turf but running well on AW lately and probably did well to last for as long as he did when third of 12 at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) ten days ago; races off the same mark and should go well again.

Would probably have made it 2-2 over C&D had he kept to a straight line here 22 days ago; only 2lb higher for this and doesn't mind fast ground.

Scored twice in lower grades in June and largely consistent otherwise this year, most recently third at Bath (1m, soft); bit to prove at this level but is compensated by racing off a low weight.

Quiet on his reappearance from a year off but looked a lot sharper when edging home in a blanket finish at Brighton (1m, good); had dropped to a good mark so a 2lb rise is readily accepted.

Doubled his tally for the season three weeks ago over C&D and that was never in any real doubt after racing prominently throughout (1m, good); kept to Class 6s so far this campaign but is still entitled to go very well off 4lb higher than last time.

Close second of 14 on handicap debut at Brighton in May (1m, good to firm) and could forgive him his subsequent defeats, as the ground was heavy at Ffos Las and he was never well positioned at Kempton; not ruled out.

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.

Races prominently, as was the case when a weakening fourth here six days ago; may struggle to regain the winning thread off an untouched mark (down 2lb in future).

Recent form is respectable in this weak context and he's attractively weighted, having gained all handicap wins off higher marks; one for the shortlist.

The latest of his four wins came at Lingfield in June (7f; off 3lb lower); prone to the occasional no-show as he's reminded us since.

No problem with the drop to sprinting when easily beating two subsequent winners on the AW early last month; was pestered when well held off his revised 7lb higher mark on Monday and should do better.

Had no problem with the return to 6f when making all and winning easily on his second start for the yard over C&D (9-4 favourite) last month; back up 7lb in the weights but he remains well treated on old form and is a major player again.
