T: Alan Brown

Multiple course winner, most recently over 6f in September; fourth behind Fantasy Navigator here nine days ago but he forced a strong pace in a race dominated by those held up; this doesn't look overloaded with pace and his rider's 7lb claim is a bonus; key player.

Her tendency to miss the kick and pull too hard have contributed to a poor strike-rate for one of her raw ability; went close over 6f here 18 days ago (behind Blackcurrent) but still to totally convince over 5f.
