Sole success came on AW at Wolverhampton and he comes here on the back of a good fifth of seven over C&D four weeks ago; that form is working out really well so he merits serious consideration eased 1lb.

Improved from his debut when winning an Epsom maiden (7f, good to soft) in July but didn't get home over the same C&D (soft) last month; there is stamina in his pedigree but he needs to bounce back on nursery/AW debut.

£200,000 yearling who got off the mark in gritty fashion at Southwell (7f Tapeta) a month ago; that wasn't a bad race and, while he has a good bit further to go here, this mark could be okay if he stays.

Debut was on turf (well held); 7f novice winner on Tapeta and better was presumably expected when odds-on third for handicap debut at Wolverhampton (9.4f); retains plenty of potential and kicks off his 3yo campaign now gelded.

Won a 7f soft-ground novice at Haydock in July but hasn't beaten a rival in either of his two nurseries; this might be easier but something to prove now, especially over a longer trip (unraced beyond 7f).

Comparatively exposed, with record only 1-14, and has edged up the weights; however, he's in good form having gone close in three of his last four outings, latest at Chelmsford (1m2f); could go well again.

Consistent since blinkers went on and will be 3lb higher from tomorrow for last Monday's Kempton near-miss (one of three to come away despite edging left); can miss the break and pull hard but could well get this run to suit, so needs considering.

0-6 since a winning debut for Andrew Balding; latest running-on fifth at Southwell (7f) suggests a return to further will suit but others appeal more.
