0-2 on turf last year but 3-4 on Tapeta, her last two successes coming by a nose over this trip at Wolverhampton and Newcastle; up another 3lb on this return from four months off, but has proved herself a tough sort and has to be respected.

Seven-race maiden but he has form figures of 3322 in nurseries and was first past the post over C&D on his penultimate run; a 4lb rise has now kicked in but he still looks feasibly treated and is a big player on this drop back in trip; hood added.

First past the post at Newcastle in October (7f; demoted to second); too free here next time but back in top form tried in a hood at Newcastle last month when beaten under one length into third (hood tried for the first time); headgear is left off this time but he's likely to give his running.
