Failed to fire in a Listed race at Bath last time but she'd been in good form on AW since fitted with a visor; on the same mark as when picking up well to win a 5f handicap at Lingfield last month; handles most ground.

Group 1-placed in his prime; pleasing start for his new stable when second at Musselburgh 13 days ago (5f, good to soft); now 3lb higher but this should be run to suit and he has each-way claims at least.

Made all in a 5f handicap at Thirsk (well drawn, front two clear) two weeks ago and a 5lb rise for that seems fair enough; different ground to contend with this time though and it's unlikely that he'll be able to dominate this field.

Progressive last summer, winning the 3yo Dash at Epsom off a 2lb lower mark; not much to recommend him after that though and a wind operation since last seen isn't enough to tempt.
