Five wins last year and second over C&D in May, off 9lb higher; dismal efforts at Perth the last twice leave him with a deal to prove but just possible he'll be happier back left-handed; often makes the running.

Won at Kelso (2m5f, good) last September and followed up over this C&D (soft); hint of spark at Kelso last time and he's back down to his last winning mark, but has to take another step back in the right direction.

C&D winner who acts on good or slower; on a competitive mark and perhaps the soft ground cost him a place or two over C&D latest, when he weakened; better ground can help and he should be heavily involved.

Market Rasen winner in March and ran at least as well when second at Cartmel, off this mark, in May; absent since, which is a slight concern, but every chance if able to repeat that form.
