J: Aidan Keeley

Improving 4yo whose form stacks up well; beat Arcadian Nights at Wolverhampton (9.5f; handicap debut) in January; solid second, behind a rival who dictated the pace, at Chelmsford (1m2f) since; likely has even more to offer and commands respect.

All three wins have come at Wolverhampton (9.4f) and he's finished close up there in last two starts; hard to rule out another good run but this is a step back up in grade and he still has something to prove at this trip.

Nine-race maiden but just about her best effort when narrowly failing to land some nice bets at Wolverhampton (8.6f) last time; she pulled nearly 3l clear with bang-in-form rival so 2lb rise looks justified; player if seeing this out (stays easy 1m2f).
