3-47, with those wins coming on turf at York (1m, twice) and Beverley (1m2f); placed on sole previous attempt over 1m4f (Catterick) but wasn't in the best of form when last seen, finishing tenth of 14 behind today's rival Spirit of Ash here (1m2f) in September; stablemate of Art of Romance.

Regressive, ex-French maiden who's run well twice over C&D this month, including when in front of Trojan Truth three weeks ago; didn't see out 1m3f in between times and Jack Enright looks decent value for 7lb in this company.

Form & Verdict

Eight-time course winner, mainly over 8.6f, who rarely goes this far these days; can pull hard, so will want to get some cover early from the outside stall, and a below-par effort last time will need forgiving too.

Ex-Irish maiden who's done most racing over hurdles; beaten a long way in three Flat starts back from wind surgery (6f-1m) this spring but this is more realistic back in headgear/a tongue-tie and upped in trip.
