Five wins on Tapeta/turf last year and ran as well as he has ever done when third of 12 at Lingfield (1m) ten days ago; unraced here but this more galloping track may suit; high on the list.

All three AW wins have come on Tapeta, the latest a short-head success at Southwell (1m) last time, but he has run well in both starts on Polytrack; only seems to do as much as is necessary (none of his six wins has been by more than half a length) so a 3lb rise may not preclude another big run.

Lightly raced and progressive 4yo; looks unlucky not to be bidding for a four-timer, winning twice at Wolverhampton (7f, Tapeta) but enduring a troubled passage when narrowly beaten there in between; being by Frankel he should stay this longer trip and respected despite 5lb higher mark.

A three-time winner (including over C&D) in the first half of 2023 and caught the eye over 7f here on his return from a break in November; racing keenly and a wide trip provide possible excuses for a lesser effort over this C&D since; down another 2lb and no shock were he to bounce back.

Hold-up performer who is 4-8 around here and put up a career-best performance when winning over C&D this month; 3lb rise puts him back on a career-high mark, but he should have the race run to suit and his record at this venue makes him a major player.
