In excellent (winning) form on the AW for his current yard through the winter but he turned in a below-par fifth back on turf at Musselburgh (1m) a fortnight ago; he's the sort to bounce back though.

Losing run is up to 15 but he's finished close up with his placed efforts over 1m and 1m1f in last three starts; this is his first 7f run since 2020 but he should get a good tow into the race and has each-way claims again; acts on most ground and has form at this track.

Losing run is up to 14 but he's finished a close second at Hamilton (8.3f/1m1f) in his last two runs and he travelled strongly for a long way last time; nudged up 1lb for that but he's versatile ground-wise and should be in the thick of things again; cheekpieces reapplied.

Often leads; acts well here, with a win and a tight second over 1m from five course starts; ended a losing run at Hamilton (about 1m, good to firm; has won on good to soft) last time and is still favourably treated despite going back up 3lb; a good option.
