Has form figures of 21311 on soft/heavy, the most recent success at this course last October; reappearance effort on Tapeta (again over 7f) sets him up nicely for this prize; bred to be as effective back at 1m; interesting granted ideal ground.

Form & Verdict

Just got the better of the argument when ending a losing run over 6f at Redcar in August (good to firm; acts on good to soft) and solid 7f run in defeat against a reviver at Thirsk since; faded fast when cheekpieces fitted (now discarded) at Chester next time and needs best form to figure.

Has enjoyed a good campaign and gained compensation for being demoted to second at York (7f) when making all in the mud at Catterick (6f) last month; faded out of it at Doncaster a couple of weeks ago but he's capable of bouncing back; won here earlier in his career.

Form & Verdict

Best form on good or quicker but probably can cope with good to soft; placed in Group 2 as a juvenile, also ran well in the Gimcrack here; his 3yo season rather passed him by but he won in good style on Newcastle AW (7f) when back from wind surgery and things didn't go to plan in the same way there next time (1m); interesting back on turf.

Best effort this year when swooping late to win a Racing League event at Southwell (7f, AW) three weeks ago; does not look overburdened with a 5lb rise and Amie Waugh's claim helps offset that anyway; yet to show his form at 6f but this stiff track should suit and he's capable of another big run.

Useful in France; slow to catch on in Britain but signalled a revival in September and has won both 7f starts since, on good to firm then with authority under a penalty at Ayr ten days ago (soft); effectively just 1lb higher here (up further 4lb in future) and has an obvious chance if a busy spell doesn't catch up with him.
