Course winner (5f; runner-up Captain Corcoran runs earlier) last September; off to the perfect start for the season when scoring at Ayr (5f, good, from a 5lb lower mark) this month; no reason why she shouldn't have a major say if proving equally effective over 6f.

3-47 career; reeled in late over C&D (good to soft) last September, and arrives off the back of a respectable effort at Catterick (5f, soft; runner-up, with a couple of these behind); there are reasons to be optimistic, so he could feasibly have a say.

Modest overall strike-rate and losing run goes back two years; recent form hadn't been too encouraging but she did keep on at one pace when third of six over 5f here yesterday.

Form & Verdict
Didn't get a clear run when second at Musselburgh last weekend and showed he was at the top of his game with an emphatic defeat of 19 rivals at Ayr on Thursday; hard to beat if anywhere near that level in this lower grade, even with his penalty.

Won a 20-runner handicap off 5lb higher at Ayr (5f, good to soft) last September but he's not matched that since including on Tapeta in his last seven starts; has some questions to answer and all of his wins have been at 5f.

Form & Verdict
Three of his five wins have come at this track on slow ground; disappointing in the last 12 months but there have been more promising signs over 6f on AW the last twice and if he is to win again, it's likely to be under these conditions.

Gave pretty good account when close third at Catterick (5f, heavy) this month and should cope with this stiff 6f but it's nearly two years since the latest of his five wins and he's not the percentage call.
