Revelation on his AW debut and first try at this trip last time, winning easily at Lingfield; enjoyed the run of the race that day, however, and this is tougher off an 8lb higher mark.

Minor promise on turf but his form has taken off since switched to AW, completing a quick hat-trick in the last month (6f-7f, Tapeta and Polytrack); seemed to resent being behind horses at Lingfield last week, pulling extremely hard in the early stages and doing well to finish as close as he did in the circumstances; still feasibly treated on earlier efforts and this C&D winner might prove happier back on a straight track.

Prominent-racer who won over C&D last month on his AW debut and second nursery start, and has won twice since (7f/6f, Tapeta), the latest at Newcastle on Monday when comfortably making all; his penalties are mounting up but he's 3-3 on AW and clearly thriving, and has to be respected.

Went with a good pace and showed the right attitude when winning at Wolverhampton last Monday; a 6lb penalty will make things tougher, having gone up 8lb for his previous win, but he looks on the upgrade and should be fine down from 7f.

Steady progress in turf maiden/novice company (6f) before pulling hard and not seeing out 1m on his nursery debut (stamina far from assured on pedigree anyway) latest; should do better down in trip if settling in first-time headgear.

J: Tommie Jakes

He wasn't winning out of turn when striking at the tenth time of asking at Newcastle last month, finishing with a flourish having met trouble in running (6f); even more impressive when thrashing his rivals at Kempton this month, producing comfortably the quickest sectionals for the final 2f; hit with a 9lb rise for that win but he ran another solid race in his hat-trick bid on Sunday, not ideally placed but keeping on well (7f); talented apprentice takes off a useful 7lb but he'll need luck in running from stall 1.

Blinkered last five starts; big improver on last two, coming from the back to win at Newcastle (overcame trouble) and Kempton (impressive); they were over 6f (tried 7f and 1m in the autumn before blinkers) and he's gone up another 9lb but he needs major respect.
