Ex-Irish maiden who is untested beyond 6f and was unable to land a telling blow on either start for new stable this spring; today's step up in trip is an interesting move but the others all have much less to prove.

Dual turf winner; ran well in first-time hood at Haydock (1m4f; clear second) most recently; place possibilities in the retained headgear, provided he's as good back on AW (third attempt).

Won twice last summer and campaign concluded with two second placings, over 1m4f on soft at Catterick on final occasion; soundly beaten at Bath on last month's reappearance but may have needed the run and the first-time hood could help him settle better; possibilities for last year's winning yard.

A maiden after 13 runs but gave good account when second here (7f, good to firm) last Thursday; 2lb lower now and will be fine over the extra furlong; probably won't be far away.

Both wins have been over 7f on good or quicker ground, latterly at Brighton in May; not many positives to take from his subsequent runs and slow ground didn't look to float his boat here three runs back.

Enjoying a consistent spell, bar one blip on soft ground here, and boasts a decent course record; there's not much wiggle room off this mark however (3lb higher than when winning in May) and a lot may hinge on whether he gets his own way in front.

Gained all five wins on AW but lost out only by a head when clear second off his lower turf mark at Lingfield (7f, good to firm; refitted cheekpieces) a fortnight ago; went up 3lb for that and the headgear is left off here, but he still features prominently in calculations.
