0-22 on turf but in excellent form switched to Tapeta this year, winning four times here (6f-7f); latest was over 6f on Friday (Atlantic Heart fourth) and he should be fine back at 5f, so needs to be taken very seriously in current mood.

Her first seven starts (7f-8.5f; five for Archie Watson) weren't brimming with encouragement but she took a good step forward when third of 12 at Newcastle 11 days ago on her drop to 5f; could fare better still as a sprinter and this race is weak; interesting.
