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.

Unplaced favourite back on AW last time; off the mark at Yarmouth (1m, good to firm) a week earlier, shaping as if he'll be suited by this longer trip; may have more to offer on turf and remains of interest.

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.

1-28 and an AW maiden; acts here and produced an AW career-best over C&D last month, when second in first-time blinkers; was below par on his next two starts but showed at Southwell (7f, Tapeta) latest that he can be competitive; each-way player.

Sole win over 7f on turf last July and most of his best form has come on grass; hasn't found much on latest two 7f starts on AW, including over C&D, and doesn't seem in peak form right now.

Signed off for Chris Wall with two disappointing AW runs in the autumn but, with blinkers removed, she held on well for narrow C&D win (good to firm) on seasonal/stable debut three weeks ago; obvious contender if able to build on that performance.

Front-runner who gained all four wins at this track on good to firm ground, the latest over today's trip on seasonal debut three weeks ago; does not look harshly treated by a 3lb rise and ought to give this a good shot.

Form & Verdict
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.
