Has won two of his four runs for this yard but his mark has suffered and off this figure he was beaten 16l behind Aurigny Mill at Kempton when last seen over Christmas; the first-time blinkers will need to make a difference.

Form & Verdict
Beat four rivals in this two years ago off a stone higher mark; not quite the same force as back then but was running well when last seen in the spring and likely to go well on his first run for Chris Gordon; likes to lead.

Form & Verdict
Front-runner who repelled a subsequent winner in a Plumpton maiden in February and wasn't disgraced in a Class 2 handicap at Sandown in April (soft); seems to enjoy this drier ground and he's won after a break in the past.

Won twice under Elizabeth Gale last season (2m, good) and solid fourth of 18 at Cheltenham last time (2m1f, good; behind two of these); can give another good account but needs a career best to win this hot race.
