1m on heavy ground won't faze him, as when second of 15 at Newmarket when last seen in November; not beaten far on last season's reappearance; one to consider.

No longer the force of old but made all off a reduced mark at Redcar (1m, good) in September and probably ran at least as well when fourth of 13 at York (1m2f, soft) three weeks ago; a possible.

His one win from 22 starts came over C&D but in a small-field event; he's now 8lb below that winning mark and a recent run on turf should have sharpened him up; should give a good account.

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.
