Ended long barren spell when making most over 7f here last month; two solid runs in defeat since and he should give it another good go; not the only pace on show though and he's drawn out wide.

Made it two wins from last four starts when scoring at Kempton (1m, AW) latest; he's run some good races on turf (including on soft) but is 0-17 on grass, and under a 5lb penalty this 8yo competes off a career-high mark.

1-14 with his win an emphatic success at Epsom (8.5f, good) last summer; beaten just a head on his return from five months off at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) in February, but didn't back it up back there next time; a player on that penultimate run, but not quite sure what to expect.

Has performed well in his rare forays on Polytrack (form 2334) and he ran well switched to front-running tactics at Kempton (1m) last time; however, all four AW successes have come on the Southwell Tapeta (7f/1m) so he may come up short again.

C&D winner who got back on the scoresheet at Yarmouth (1m2f, good to soft) in September, but only fifth of 11 at Newcastle (1m2f, Tapeta) 11 days ago; did best of the prominent racers there, but still has 3l to find with Barley so does have work to do.

Lightly raced 4yo who went close in a C&D handicap when last seen 196 days ago (first run after a gelding operation); that took his AW record to 223; retains potential on this surface and Oisin Murphy on board for his return; headgear left off but he still looks a solid contender.
