Loves it here, having won six times over 6f and also over C&D; has plummeted in the handicap since the spring of 2022 but finally took advantage when scoring at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) last month; a 4lb rise might make it tough to follow up.

Six-time course winner (6f/7f) whose losing run is up to 20, but he ran his best race for a while when third of ten at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) a fortnight ago; races off the same mark (24lb lower than for his last win) and each-way claims at least if building on that.

Brother to a prolific AW winner for his connections; 0-11 but finished well for close second at Newcastle (7f) last Tuesday; clear possibilities if backing up that effort.

Losing run is mounting up; however, he's in a consistent vein of form having made the frame at this course (7f/1m) on last three outings; defied an 8lb higher mark here last March and enters calculations.

Favourite for both AW wins (here, 7f and 1m); numerous placed finishes, but has failed to crack the code this winter, keeping-on into third over C&D latest; could feasibly rediscover winning ways at some point soon.
