All three wins have come on Tapeta (5f) during the winter; her last success was 11 months ago but she's reached the frame in last four starts including when third at Wolverhampton (classified event) ten days ago; should get a decent pace back in a handicap and she has each-way claims again.

Well handicapped on last summer's form (includes an emphatic C&D win) and seemed to go off too hard when fifth over C&D last month; unlikely to be gifted an uncontested lead but can be dangerous if he settles better this time.

This winter's evidence suggests he has a small sprint in him on AW and he wasn't disgraced back up to 6f at Southwell on Saturday; didn't quite get home having looked a big threat 1f out though and he could prove vulnerable to stronger stayers here; blinkers now tried (has worn cheekpieces in eight of his last ten runs).
