Well held in two Kempton handicaps (1m4f) this winter but made most for a narrow win at Wolverhampton a month ago (1m4f); just 3lb higher with Archie Young again on board (claimed 7lb last time); possible.

Unexposed 5yo who was returning from six months off and having his first start since being gelded when beaten a neck at Wolverhampton (1m4f, Tapeta) 15 days ago; up 2lb but still a major player if taking a step forward.

Last year's novice form included 1m4f win; has failed to progress in middle-distance handicaps this season but he's had a break since his last run in June and may be capable of better off this reduced mark (10lb lower than reappearance).

Not out of the first four in six runs for this yard, winning three of those (all at Lingfield from 1m4f to 1m5f); 1m6f looked to stretch him here in December but connections keen to give it another go.

Very lightly raced 4yo who returned from a lengthy absence with a win on his handicap/stable debut at Kempton (1m4f, Polytrack) last month; up 5lb but he knuckled down well to justify favouritism last time and is open to more improvement; interesting contender.

Lightly raced; both handicap starts at 1m4f, winning here (back from lengthy absence) then disappointing at Wolverhampton; may have more to offer back at Kempton, provided he stays this longer distance.
