Merit seemed established in handicaps but he cranked it up a notch when an easy winner of a competitive handicap at Goodwood last week. Penalty to carry but has to be of serious interest.

Asserted in good style back up in trip in 9-runner handicap at Ayr (1m) a month ago. Failed to go with any fluency at Thirsk but likely to bounce back given overall profile.

Very best form has come on the AW, adding to tally in minor company at Southwell in March. Probably needed the run back on turf last month and should build on that.

Big improver on the AW during the winter, completing a hat-trick at Kempton in early March and improved another jolt when landing 6f handicap here a month ago. Very likeable profile.

Back-to-back winner over 6f this summer and much better than the result at Goodwood 11 days ago over that trip, finishing with running left. Well worth a shot at 7f but work to do on these terms.

Fairly useful last year for Mark Johnston and has returned to similar form for this yard when causing a shock in a 15-runner event at the Derby meeting at Epsom (7f). Backed that up when second at hat track next time and latest Goodwood run easy to excuse.
