Consistent at up to 16.5f on turf between May and September last year (record 322233112); makes his AW debut in first-time cheekpieces after 199 days off, but including his racecourse debut he doesn't have a great record fresh.

Form & Verdict

Three of his four wins have been on the AW and it was a belated return to turf when keeping on for a close third behind Marbuzet at Carlisle (1m6f, good to firm); won't mind softer ground; considered.

T: Jim Goldie

Five-time course winner, three of them over tonight's trip, latterly off 2lb lower last month; hit traffic in a messy affair at Wolverhampton latest and, while a bigger field would have been ideal (is usually dropped in and can pull), he's shortlisted.

Form & Verdict

Shot up 8lb for winning by clear daylight in a first-time visor at Beverley (1m4f, good to soft) and that was probably a factor in her Carlisle defeat; unraced over this far and it could become a test should conditions soften up.
