Four-time winner over 6f for Tim Easterby, including on the old Fibresand surface at Southwell; didn't show much on her stable debut over C&D last time (behind Ultramarine) and best to look elsewhere.

Prominent racer with three turf wins to his name, all at Hamilton on ground slower than good; two solid efforts over 7f here in his youth and a stiff track suits him well; may face competition for the lead but he can go well after a break and he is usually seen in stronger company.

Well treated on his old form but he's on a long losing run and was out of sorts for most of last year; won his only previous start on AW but that was in 2021 and he has something to prove on return for new yard (changed hands for 7,000gns in October).

Made a winning return at Redcar (6f, soft) in April and added another success at Musselburgh (7f, good) the following month (form worked out very well); bounced back from a lesser effort when a close third of 11 at Chester (7f, soft) 18 days ago and that form has been boosted with the first two winning their next starts; high on the list.
