Doubled his career tally when justifying favouritism over C&D (good) three weeks ago; up 3lb but that was a comfortable success and he's still feasibly treated.

A near-miss and two wins over 1m here late last summer and is back on his last winning mark; proved this longer trip within range on the AW when last seen two months ago and he's hard to knock out of the equation.

Went up 10lb for three fast-ground wins in early summer and has generally run well off her revised mark since, usually from the front; fair chance she's able to get her own way, in which case she'll be dangerous, with the drying weather in her favour.

In good form last spring, including when beaten a short-head in the corresponding event 12 months ago; back to form with a C&D win (good) nine days ago, setting a strong pace but having his rivals out of their comfort zone and able to maintain his advantage despite running the final 2f in a funereal 28.22s; 5lb rise fair enough but he had a hard race there and could prove vulnerable turned out quickly.
