Just one win from his first 28 starts but he's won three of his last seven and went close in his bid for a double at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last time; this return to Tapeta is no problem and he remains feasibly treated on his best form; respected.

Just one win from 29 starts but he was useful in his younger days and he made a bold bid when a close third off a tumbling mark at Chelmsford (1m2f, AW) last Saturday; now makes his Tapeta debut but he's a big player if he can repeat that latest form.

Looked like winning for much of the way before nabbed near the line over C&D last time; is still a maiden and doesn't appeal as the easiest but he's a strong traveller who should get cover in this big field and has to go on the shortlist.
