Front-runner; made all in a C&D handicap last September off 3lb lower; weakened only late on here 17 days ago on his reappearance and could last longer today; this doesn't look overloaded with pace but he'll still need a career best to come out on top.

Goes well with positive tactics and got off the mark after a gelding operation by making all in maiden at Bath (5.7f, good to soft; handles good to firm) last month; could be unexposed as a sprinter (campaigned at 7f/1m earlier in career) and he needs serious consideration back in a handicap.

Half-brother to the very useful Dragon Symbol who's lightly raced and open to improvement; was drawn away from the action on his return from six months off on turf recently (gelded) and that was promising enough; is again drawn wide though.

All three of her wins for James Tate came at Chelmsford; dual 6f winner but her last was over 7f and she just lacked a finishing kick when it mattered on stable debut at Salisbury (6f), though she still ran well in a decent handicap for the grade; stiffer finish here should be beneficial.
