J: Daniel Tudhope

Three successes on Tapeta since December and bids for a hat-trick after winning twice at Wolverhampton (8.6f); up another 3lb, but a bigger problem may be that he seemed to find this an inadequate test when fifth of nine over C&D in February.

In good form since the cheekpieces went back on in December, dead-heating at Southwell (1m, Tapeta) and winning outright over this C&D before beaten two necks into third back at Southwell (1m) 17 days ago; up another 1lb, but no reason why he shouldn't go well again.

Has run several good races over C&D this winter but the return to 7f here was ideal when he came with a wet sail to win a shade cosily last week; 3lb badly in under a penalty and has a little to find with Retraction on C&D form previously; can still be involved.

Sole win came at Ayr (1m2f, good) in April 2022; that was after a 205-day absence, but below form in his last two starts of that year and he now returns from another 533 days off; market useful.

Sole win over 1m2f at Ayr (good) as 4yo and, after missing 2023, he hasn't approached his best form at about 1m on the AW this year; well below best in one previous run on soft so there is that to think about, too.
