Was drawn wide in a stronger handicap over C&D last time (race didn't favour those held up) and is now only 2lb higher than when winning on turf last summer; one to consider back at this level.

Two big-field 6f handicap wins this summer, one of them here; running well in defeat in recent starts but if he is to defy this mark it might be on faster ground than he'll encounter today.

Beat 15 rivals to win at Doncaster (6f, good) in May and followed up in commanding fashion in 15-runner handicap over this C&D (good to firm); only third of eight off this increased mark at Newmarket (6f, good), and doubt about slow ground, but he's clearly well suited by a big-field scenario.

Last year's three wins came at Lingfield but he's run well here a few times; not much room for manoeuvre off this mark (5lb above his highest successful rating) but having a 5lb claimer (1-24) up may help.

Ex-Irish gelding who can pull hard but who's proving consistent for his new yard; is 1lb well-in off the back of last Thursday's Chelmsford second and will rightly be popular under Liam Wright, who has plenty of experience for 3lb in this company.

His four wins have all come on Polytrack, never off a mark this high, and he is still to finish placed after ten runs on turf; has done most racing over 7f and doesn't arrive in any form, so has a good bit to overcome.

Ran well first time out as a 2yo, which is a plus back from five months off (has been gelded); the blinkers experiment is quickly binned and he's handily drawn for one happiest up front but he remains 4lb above last summer's winning marks.
