The return to Tapeta raises some questions for the two principals in a recent Lingfield event, FEARSOME and Thaqaffa, but the former was returning from a break when he ran flat on his only previous course start and this strong finisher looks worth chancing to improve on his decent strike-rate in 1m4f handicaps on AW. Thaqaffa looks sure to be involved again, with Technological much preferred of the remainder.[Emily Weber]

Improved on AW at up to 1m4f early last year (one of two wins came here) but couldn't maintain the progress back on turf; respectable fourth at Lingfield after Christmas on return from a break and may yet have more to come over 1m4f.

All four AW wins, by no more than a neck, over 1m4f at Lingfield, and found the most when foiling Thaqaffa close home three weeks ago; may have had a fitness excuse when below best on only start here and still of interest off a fair mark.

Came into his own when upped to middle distances in a hood last winter, landing a hat-trick over 1m3f/1m4f at Kempton; decent return from break at Lingfield when Fearsome only just nailed him close home; weights turnaround in his favour and solid chance of gaining revenge back on Tapeta.

Yet to race beyond about 1m1f, winning over that trip here in December; has run well in defeat since but going into the unknown over 1m4f and his pedigree is more about shorter trips.

Successful 1m debut at Kempton for Hugo Palmer in 2017; lightly raced since and not obviously well treated in two middle-distance AW handicaps in the autumn; sold 4,000gns since; probably needs another weights drop.

Multiple AW winner, including over C&D, before an absence; made quite an encouraging return in November but soundly beaten twice since (tailed off this month) and one to watch for now; cheekpieces refitted, tongue-tie added.

Useful handicapper at around 1m4f on turf/AW (has shown respectable form here) but was returning from over a year off when beaten nearly 80l over C&D last month and looks likely to need more time; tongue-tie on.
