Justified favouritism to score on handicap debut a year ago for Michael Stoute, still six pounds higher than for that. Has struggled in both runs at Ripon for this new yard, failing to beat a rival home over this trip last time. Best watched.
Shaped well when fifth on 1m Ripon stable bow but disappointing back there (1m2f) since

Found this trip and soft too testing on his penultimate start, having been running well over shorter previously. Bounced back to form last time, one paced in fifth in a stronger race. Should be thereabouts, although he's winless on turf since 2015.

Campaigned entirely on the All-Weather, he beat the now 115 rated Matterhorn on stable debut in November. Obviously well treated if reproducing that, however he's failed to get involved in two starts on Tapeta since switched to handicap company.

Front runner who is now two pounds lower than when scoring comfortably in August for his previous yard. Every reason for that after three poor efforts for this yard over twelve; avoided for all that he's shaped as if this trip would be better suited.

Was outclassed at Ayr over thirteen furlongs last time. This is no doubt more his level, and he's now a pound lower than when placing over this trip in two starts in May. With five claimed, he may well go close to his first turf win.

John Gosden cast off who was beaten a fair way over this trip on Tapeta on stable debut. Entitled to step forward from that first run for a year, although he's still worth avoiding until showing considerably more.
No obvious promise on recent stable debut after a lay-off but too soon to write off
