Form & Verdict

Hasn't kicked on from his winning turf debut last September but he's edging down the weights and 1m probably stretched him last time; this is a bit weaker and he's one to consider.

Fairly bolted up over 7f here two weeks ago but that wasn't a comparable race to this; 8lb rise should be enough to scupper a follow up.

25-1 when making successful debut over 6f on turf last year; stiff tasks the next twice but he hasn't achieved a lot in AW handicaps over the winter and the step up to 1m is of uncertain benefit.

Won twice here as a 2yo and he's continued to run with credit here all year, placed on his last six starts; clearly needs to pull out a bit extra to defy this mark but it's certainly not impossible.

Out of the doldrums with a front-running C&D success last week (Likeashadow over 2l back in second); whether this will pan out quite so smoothly is a moot point and the penalty will demand a step forward; is at least unexposed over the trip.
