Won three on the AW late last year and has remained competitive off his revised mark since; this is a deeper race, though, and he's fully exposed now, so will again be vulnerable to improvers.

J: Rhys Clutterbuck

T: Dylan Cunha

Has progressed well for this yard, winning five times and going 18lb up the weights, but he found it too much from a good draw behind Enchanting at Epsom last time; this spring's improvement came over 6f and he'll need a career-best back at 5f.

J: Rhys Clutterbuck

T: Dylan Cunha

Has proved notably tough and progressive since joining current connections, and Tuesday's Lingfield win (6f, AW) was his fifth in all; should be just as effective back at 5f and he handles turf as well, but a 6lb penalty in this much more competitive race means he'll need another personal best.

Three AW wins in late 2023, including C&D; runner-up four times this spring before finding a jolt of improvement to account for 11 rivals at Newmarket 11 days ago; big chance if backing that up but he's drawn widest and could prove vulnerable.

Underwent wind and gelding operations in the winter and has got it together since switched to turf this spring, coming away with one other in a small field over 7f at Musselburgh (first-time tongue-tie) a fortnight ago; needs more upped 3lb but this stiff 6f should be fine.
