Modest strike-rate but conditions won't be an excuse and he's on his sole winning mark; back from a break but worth a market check.

Just 1-20 but has run well in two of his three starts over C&D, as when fourth of 13 last month (just behind Granary Queen); did all his best work late on that day and may be worth chancing from his favourable draw if timing his run right.

Looked as good as ever when close second at Newmarket (7f, good) in July and his subsequent sixth in the competitive Grey Horse handicap there was also a good effort; also suited by this C&D but probably doesn't have much margin for error off current mark.

Form & Verdict

In good form last autumn, completing a hat-trick with a defeat of 14 rivals over C&D in October; subsequent Lingfield defeat easy enough to excuse; could have more to come this year but he's returning from five months off and was only third in the corresponding event after a similar absence last year.

Four of five wins came in the second half of 2023, over 6f and 5f on turf, and he reached new heights for the latest of them in October; had excuses for defeat in his one previous AW handicap but will do well to reproduce his grass form on Polytrack debut from the widest draw.

Form & Verdict

Had a fine campaign in 2022 but a consequence was that he was harshly handicapped last year; begins this campaign 20lb lower than 12 months ago and conditions won't be a problem; well drawn to attack; interesting having travelled a long way for this reappearance.

Into the veteran stage now and without a win since November 2021; starts his turf campaign off a lowly mark and the addition of a tongue tie could have a positive effect; one to consider.

Winless since landing a C&D handicap off 16lb higher in November 2021; even last year's best gives him good claims at this level and he should be sharper with last month's return to action behind him; drawn widest.

Dual Kempton AW winner (6f/7f) last November, but as a result is 14lb higher than when gaining his last turf success at Ffos Las (6f, good) last summer; probably needed last month's Windsor reappearance (6f, good to firm), but still well down the pecking order.

Front-runner who started his 2023 campaign with a bang, winning two sprints at Bath before being placed in six of his next seven starts; ended the season more quietly but he's dropped in the weights; market useful starting out for a yard that has won a division of this race twice in recent years (same owner).

Invariably comes to hand early, including winning the last two runnings of this off the same mark as today; was slowly away and pulled hard on his stable debut a fortnight ago and that will have set him up nicely for the hat-trick attempt.
