Won three times over C&D (good/soft) last season and latest was off 3lb higher; never dangerous in three AW runs this year but he didn't get any luck at Wolverhampton last time and looks interesting on this switch back to turf.

J: Georgia Dobie

T: Eve Johnson Houghton

Course specialist who returned to form and won comfortably by 3l here (1m, good) when back on turf ten days ago; probably still on a workable mark after recent 7lb rise but moves up from 0-55 grade today and the drop back to 7f is not sure to suit.

Runner-up in this race last year and won here last May; looks well handicapped on that form but he's lost his way in his last six starts; blinkers now return on this switch back to turf but he needs a revival.
