Soft-ground winner last May who came back to that sort of level last time (soft); consistent enough and plenty of rain would bring him into the equation.

Mixed results on AW since winning at Southwell in January; best turf form when scoring comfortably off just 1lb lower at Windsor (6f, soft) last May and he remains unexposed on slow ground; interesting back in this sphere.

Form & Verdict

Four-time course winner who's fine on any ground and arrives in good form, off the same mark as when narrowly beaten in a small field on heavy ground nine days ago (made the running as usual); should go well again.

Does most racing at 7f-1m and has run only once in a sprint, when performing fairly well over C&D last summer; he doesn't arrive in any form, however, and is some way down the pecking order.

J: Aidan Keeley

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.

Form & Verdict

Has three wins and a close second to his name from seven starts over C&D and tends to do well around this time of year; on a handy mark now, having offered more last time, and the headgear goes back on, so it's hard to find many negatives.

Multiple winner, the latest of them at Chelmsford (7f) last month; runner-up at Southwell (6f) next time and not beaten far despite only finishing sixth at Southwell 17 days ago (winner and third have won since); has four course wins on his record and he's likely to make another bold bid.

Prolific winner who has shown no sign of age wearying him, digging deep over 7f at Chelmsford four weeks ago and then a close second over C&D 11 days ago; due to be 2lb higher from the weekend and he has to enter the reckoning.

Form & Verdict

Has come around a stone down the weights since picked up from Ireland for 42,000gns last summer, having done his racing over 7f-1m2f; whether he'll have the toe for this, back from four months off, is the question.
