Returns to turf 9lb higher than when last running on grass but his AW rating has gone up 19lb during that time and he's clearly found a burst of improvement, despite having had plenty of racing; ideally suited by an easy 5f and has won over C&D; fair chance of the hat-trick.

Successful in two of his last three starts, the latest when making all and winning easily at Wolverhampton (5f, Tapeta) 20 days ago; form boosted by the subsequent wins of the second (twice) and third, but will do well to get an uncontested lead here and a 10lb rise doesn't help either.

In the form of his life, winning three times over C&D since December; whether he can cope with this higher grade remains to be seen but this should be run to suit and he couldn't be coming here in better order.

Formerly tricky to win with but he's become a winning machine this winter, landing five of his last eight starts (placed in the other three); hit with a 9lb rise for a C&D win 12 days ago though and he'll need to step forward again to complete the hat-trick.

Talented but can make life tricky for himself; showed his true colours when overcoming a wide stall at Lingfield in November and a 4lb rise wouldn't look beyond him; should get a strong pace to aim at and he's still not fully exposed on AW.

In line with so many from his yard he's done well this winter, overcoming a bad draw at Lingfield (5f) and producing a strong finish to land a 6f handicap back at Lingfield last month; ran well in one C&D run as a 2yo; up in the weights but has always threatened to be useful.

Looks smart on his day and although he can be the architect of his own downfall, he didn't do too much wrong at Wolverhampton 13 days ago, simply unable to peg back a winner who got first run; has won over 6f but his last 13 starts have been at 5f; too much talent to ignore at this level and he's 1-1 at Lingfield.

Two Lingfield wins in Class 5 company this winter, partnered by Oisin Murphy on both occasions; effective elsewhere and although only fifth last time, that was in a race in which they went slowly for the first 2f (form franked); half a length behind Gustav Graves on that occasion but a whopping 14lb better off today; contender.
