Greatgadian

J: Aidan Keeley

T: Roger Varian

1m winner here in October; two good placed efforts over 7f here and at Southwell around the turn of the year; unable to show his true colours at Kempton last time when short of room as he was making his move; solid claims off a competitive mark.

Never Better

9st 0lb

J: Jack Mitchell

T: Roger Varian

From a good family; 5-1, in need of experience when fifth of 13 on C&D debut 24 days ago; likely to progress for leading stable.

Dragon Icon

8st 13lb

J: Cameron Noble

T: Roger Varian

Lacklustre effort in a 1m handicap here on his return to action in January; fared better when a close fourth of seven at Kempton last month, keeping on late in a steadily run affair; he'll need another surge of improvement to take this from a poor draw though and his stamina for 1m2f isn't assured.

Brave Empire

9st 2lb

J: Daniel Tudhope

T: Roger Varian

Progressive at novice level on turf last term, winning twice; flopped when favourite at Newcastle on his handicap debut in January but he resumed his progress when scrambling home in a five-runner C&D handicap (three of his rivals reoppose) last month; only 1lb higher but he's drawn wide and he'll need to improve again.

Inspiritus

9st 8lb

J: Aidan Keeley

T: Roger Varian

Improving 4yo whose form stacks up well; beat Arcadian Nights at Wolverhampton (9.5f; handicap debut) in January; solid second, behind a rival who dictated the pace, at Chelmsford (1m2f) since; likely has even more to offer and commands respect.

7/2
