Regained the winning thread at Hamilton (6f, good) last time and remains favourably treated on peak form; defied a 4lb higher mark over C&D last August and warrants respect.

Form & Verdict
Ex-Irish maiden; career-best effort when pulling clear with a thriving rival at Carlisle last week (6f, good to firm; Thaki back in third); well treated on that evidence and he's a key player.

Suited by these blinkers and prominent rides when winning two in a row over C&D (good to firm), before very close fourth at Ayr (6f, good to firm) latest; has run well on soft ground in the past; can make another bold bid.

Blinkers have turned things around and he has won his last two starts, both under prominent rides in 6f handicaps at Thirsk on good to firm; 4lb rise shouldn't prevent another big run.

J: Sean Kirrane

T: Michael Dods

In first-time blinkers he got off the mark at the 19th attempt in a big field over C&D three weeks ago (good to firm; made most); back up 5lb he remains well treated on last season's best form; key player if the headgear maintains its positive effect.

Has dropped to a handy mark and was back on song when third of 16 at York (7f, good to soft) 12 days ago; rarely seen over 1m nowadays but he was a very close third at Musselburgh (good to firm) last July on his last attempt at today's trip and he could be involved under William Buick.

In good form last summer and he's only 1lb higher than for his AW success last September; always in rear in two handicap runs since returning from a break and this looks a competitive race in which to try and revive.

Form & Verdict
Well backed when winning a 7f handicap on the AW at Newcastle in March (off this mark); he has remained in form since and dropping back into a Class 4 can help; Billy Loughnane is 2-3 for the stable and he's one to take very seriously.

Form & Verdict
Finished last in three quick runs in 7f novice/maiden events last summer when trained by Mick Channon, but he wasn't beaten far at Catterick on the final occasion; not obviously well treated ahead of his stable/handicap debut and the drop to 6f isn't sure to suit either.
