Hot Recent Form Trainer - 5 wins from 13 in the last 14 days (38%)
Useful handicapper for Aidan O’Brien last year; has run to a consistent level of form in his two starts since joining these connections. Dropped two pounds since last seen, but he does need a shade more to be considered a win contender.
Feasibly treated on best Irish form but has to find something extra on this year's efforts

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Without a win since April 2017, but he ran some fine races in defeat last season; fifth in the Cambridgeshire at Newmarket in September. Tends to save his best form for when fresh, so the absence is, if anything, a plus for his chances today.
Solid 1m/1m1f form last autumn and should be even better at this trip; big player

Hot Recent Form Jockey - 15 wins from 58 in the last 14 days (26%)
Broke a nineteen-race losing run when landing a handicap at Chelmsford last time out; beating Big Kitten by a head. Has been raised four pounds for that success, however, and his profile suggests that he is no good thing to follow up today.
Narrow verdict from Big Kitten latest; consistent, but type that needs all to drop right

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 15 in the last 14 days (0%)
Made a promising reappearance at Nottingham last month, but he failed to back that effort up when eighth in a conditions race at Longchamp last time out. Even a return to his very best form would likely leave him short in this company.
Unease about stamina but has some good form at 1m2f; promising second on reappearance

Generally struggled for form last year, but he shaped with much more promise when second (at odds of 40/1) in a handicap at Doncaster on his first start of 2019. Gets in here off the same handicap mark, but he does look more exposed than most of these.
Encouraging second at Doncaster last month and old form provides hope he can build on it

Finished a creditable second over today’s course and distance on his final start for Marco Botti, but he has shown very modest form in his four starts since joining this yard. Difficult to be enthusiastic about his chances at present.
Second of 17 off this mark over C&D in October but hasn't shone on AW the last twice

Failed to win in thirteen starts for David O’Meara last year, but he got off the mark at just the second attempt for this yard when scoring at Newcastle last time out. Up nine pounds for that success, however, which demands more from him today.
Rejuvenated when winning by 5l on second stable start; still mileage in his mark (up 9lb)
