Without a win since January 2022 and 3-32 overall; can race freely but he's been bang there in his last three runs and should have some say; won't mind rain.

Made all for first turf win 12 days ago (1m); dual Fibresand winner on this track but for whatever reason he hasn't run up to his best in three C&D starts, most recently off this mark in June.

Only midfield at Ayr's big meeting last time but usually gives his running; might just be vulnerable in a Class 5.

14-race maiden who has been placed now and again but often takes a good hold; interesting to see what John Butler can do with him (bought 11,500gns).

Did well to finish fifth at Chelmsford (1m, AW) last time, having been slowly away and met traffic issues; however, now 0-18 and chance of first win partly depends on how well he takes to first-time hood.
