Boasts some strong sprint form on Polytrack and he is now operating off a very tempting mark; no match for Shallow Hal at Chelmsford seven weeks ago and the money for him on that occasion suggested he would have been ready to roll after a short break.

Two 5f wins this winter, one of them over C&D, and he ran as well as he ever has when chasing home Kim Wexler over C&D last week; steps up in class here though and it could find him out.

Firmly on the up this winter, winning 5f handicaps at Wolverhampton and this track; better than ever in defeat here last week when clear of the third and finding only a well-handicapped reviver too strong; runs off 2lb lower this time and of obvious interest from a handicapping perspective; ran well over C&D on debut but returning to this longer trip isn't sure to suit.

Has shown plenty of speed in his races but over longer trips; both runs this winter have suggested he has races in him off this sort of mark and the drop to 5f could prompt further progress; more appealing than many.

Tough mare who has been holding her form very well, most recently making all to beat Murbih over C&D last week; penalty against stiffer opposition and other pace influences mean she'll need to step forward again.
