Both wins have come on the AW and 0-7 on turf but his turn looks to be coming very soon, judged on two close seconds over 6f this year, losing out in the last stride to Tiriac over C&D (good to soft; acts well on good) last month; up 4lb but has solid in-form credentials.

Both his wins have come on heavy ground, the latest a smooth win at Windsor 19 days ago where he appeared to have a lot in hand; unlikely he's handicapped out of things up 6lb but much depends on how slow the ground is as he is starting to look like a mudlark.

Dual 6f winner for Ed Bethell last season; not run up to his best in four starts for this yard this season, including over 5f; on a good mark now but a fair bit to prove.

Two 6f handicap wins for previous yard (on good to firm and good), both in headgear; well held with no aids for new trainer this year but the visor returns today and he should be all the sharper for it.

Veteran who has won 13 times in his career, the latest off 2lb higher at Newmarket (6f, good) a year ago; finished behind three of these at York (6f, good to soft) last month, though, and rain wouldn't be welcome.

Enjoyed his finest hour when winning the Group 2 Norfolk Stakes at Royal Ascot (5f, good to firm) as a 2yo, but has finished out of the frame in all eight starts since (gelded before returning last month); takes another drop in class, but can't be supported until showing signs of a resurgence.

Form & Verdict
Often leads; best effort for this yard when ending a losing turf run of nearly three years at Hamilton (5f, good) last week; did win over 6f on AW in the autumn but it's a while since he was prominent over this trip on turf which leaves him with plenty to prove.
