No. 8 Draw 2

Enjoyed a fine 2021 scoring 3 times (including over C&D). Ran poorly after 8 months off when sixth of 8 in handicap at Ayr (10f, good, 5/1) 20 days ago, racing closer to pace than ideal. Should be much closer to form here.

Form was up and down on turf last term but resurgent on all-weather this winter, gaining third victory at Wolverhampton (9.5f) in February. Clearly not 100% at Newcastle the following month (lame) but he may just find a couple too good back on turf.

17/2, returned to form when second of 5 in handicap at Doncaster (10.2f, good to firm) 22 days ago, staying on inside final 1f (needing stronger gallop). won this corresponding race from a 4 lb higher mark in 2021 so he's fancied to be in the mix.

3-time C&D winner. 11/2, failed to come on for his return when fourth of 7 in handicap at this course (12f, good) 22 days ago, looking awkward from 3f out. Down to his last winning mark but others appeal more on balance.
