Runner-up over C&D (good to soft) last month then suffered torrid passage at Pontefract before winning over this C&D (soft); had 3l to spare last time and clearly likes it here; a 6lb rise may not stop him.

Running well on the AW this year, including making a successful handicap debut at Kempton (1m), but his two efforts on turf which book-end his career raise doubt over him on grass.

Slowly away and no impact when fifth at Haydock (1m, good to firm) last month on first handicap start; however, he showed promise on soft ground on his debut last September and perhaps he'll tap back into that when reverting to a slow surface; trainer does well here; wears a first-time hood.

Last-time Beverley handicap fifth (8.5f) rates no worse form than her previous 7.5f success there; likely to need a bit of use making of her returned to a sharp 7f, but will mind the rain less than some.

Never far away when finding most to prevail over this far at Redcar (good to firm) and she pulled too hard to give herself any chance at Beverley (good to soft); only 4lb above her winning mark and there's a big run in her if settling better.
