Form & Verdict
Only just denied on his return from six months off at Lingfield (1m, AW) this month and a 1lb rise for that still leaves him 1lb lower than when successful over C&D (good to firm) last May; could be the answer.

Form & Verdict
Often a front-runner who won three times at around 1m last year and didn't run badly when sixth of 13 on his return at Kempton (1m, AW) ten days ago, only fading out of things late; drying ground would be in his favour, but the shorter trip does pose a question.

Has been well beaten first time out in each of his three seasons, so it may be best to forgive last month's Kempton reappearance (1m, AW); won over C&D as a 2yo and back off the same mark as when winning at Goodwood (1m, good to firm) last summer; drying ground in his favour and respected for stable that won this with Mamillius in 2019 and 2022.

Five wins last year including one here (6f, good to firm) with his last two successes coming over this trip at Chepstow (good); has won after six months off so his absence since December isn't a major concern, but his last three efforts do leave something to be desired.

Has been kept busy on the AW since last seen on turf including three wins over 7f-8.6f; did well here last summer, with a win (1m, good to firm) and three runner-up finishes in five visits, so although further may suit him better now he has to be considered especially should the ground dry out.
