Resumed winning ways at Thirsk (6f) in August and posted another solid effort when fourth of 14 over C&D 25 days ago; he can boast a C&D success too so is firmly in the picture.

Can be a hostage to fortune given he's often slowly away and stall 1 may be more of a hindrance than a help; still feasibly treated after his ready Thirsk win over 6f in August and 7f looks worth revisiting on recent evidence.

Off the mark with 7f win on seasonal debut at Redcar (good) in June, after a break, and placed off today's mark over that trip at Ayr (soft) last month; not sure to benefit from today's drop back in trip but, after only seven runs, he's not yet fully exposed.

Had a fine time of things last year and she was back on the up when winning a 5f handicap at Newcastle on her return to action in January; good second over 6f there in February but her form dipped last time when she may have done too much early; penultimate effort offers hope she's still well treated and returning to 5f no issue.

Better than ever this winter, winning 7f handicaps at Newcastle and here and producing solid efforts in defeat the last twice; not much margin for error off this mark but he's fully effective at 6f and this year's wins have come when ridden by Jason Hart.
