9st 11lb

J: Saffie Osborne

T: David Simcock

Came from off the pace to win similar event over C&D in September (penultimate start); not in the same form here two weeks ago but may do better with that reappearance effort under his belt.

9st 12lb

J: Joey Haynes

T: David Simcock

His form can be up and down but he made it two wins from his last three starts when scoring over C&D in September last time out; a 3lb rise isn't harsh and he can be in the mix if at the top of his game after a break.

8st 5lb

J: Hayley Turner

T: David Simcock

Something to prove on softer than good after two attempts; strike-rate was looking unimpressive until he won over 2m at Beverley and Kempton on two of his last three starts; came from a detached last on latest outing and that's tricky to execute here but he was capable of a bit better still in his 2020 peak form and will relish every yard.

slowly away, raced in last and detached, joined main group after 6f, pushed along and still plenty to do over 2f out, ridden and headway up the centre over 1f out, kept on well to lead towards finish
