Strike-rate of 4-8 and unbeaten in two runs since gelded, winning with a bit in hand at both Newmarket (1m, good to soft) and over a little shorter at Chester (soft); can race freely so this big-field scenario should suit, but whether he'll be good enough is doubtful.

Dual winner at 2 who took his form up another notch after a gelding operation when making a winning reappearance in a 15-runner Newmarket handicap (1m, good to soft) 22 days ago; may have been helped by being held up in a race where the leaders appeared to go hard but it was still a pleasing performance and his stable's continued good form provides hope for better again.

Twice beaten at odds-on before getting off the mark at the sixth attempt in Chester novice (6f, good) 12 days ago, and he's twice looked uneasy around Epsom which is a concern at another undulating track; however, he's in a bigger field than usual and the expected strong pace, allied with the first-time cheekpieces, could help him fulfil his potential.
