His last win was 14 months ago but he's had several close calls this year including over C&D in September; didn't fire at Lingfield last month but was reported to have been coughing after the race and he could bounce back with a big run.

Has improved plenty for the fitting of a hood, winning at Carlisle (7f, good to soft) and Sandown (7f, good) last month before finshing second of three at Ffos Las (7.4f, soft) 13 days ago; possible that the testing ground found him out there and not a surprise if he bounces back.

Quickly back in the groove for her new stable, beaten under one length over C&D in November before forcing a dead-heat at Chelmsford three weeks ago; made a notable move in the straight on that occasion, doing enough to think she could cope with a 3lb rise.

Can't fault her consistency and she deserved her 6f win here in August (first-time tongue-tie); even better form when second at Chelmsford one week later; needs more back in a handicap but she's ideally berthed to attack back at 5f.

String of minor honours at short prices on AW early in the year before wind surgery; not so good with cheekpieces/blinkers in his two runs since and left George Boughey for 1,500gns in July; reverting to last summer's turf form, or last winter's on AW, would see him placed again.
