Form & Verdict

Could be given a good chance on his efforts in a couple of Tapeta handicaps last autumn, but he has had a rear view of Rockley Point in their last three meetings and losing run now up to 21; others more persuasive.

Finally capitalised on his tumble down the weights when sweeping through to win a similar race here three weeks ago; should get a good pace to aim at and more appealing than many kept to this level.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner who missed the break and ran into traffic before rattling home to finish fourth of 12 here last time (Rockley Point second); has only managed to win one of his last 51 starts, though, so not guaranteed to back that up.

Form & Verdict

Just 3-46, but he went down by just a neck when dropped to this level over C&D last month and would have gone closer with a clear run when fifth of 11 in a handicap here 16 days ago; not the most consistent, but every chance on these terms if on a going day.

Useful record on soft (also ran well enough once on heavy to think it was fine) and he comes here chasing a hat-trick after two Southwell wins over 5f; had a bit in hand on the latter occasion and cheekpieces (2-2 in them) have really helped; up 6lb but needs serious consideration.
