All in this small field have something to prove and it is likely this will be tactical too. The useful hurdler BLEU ET NOIR ought to have no trouble with 1m4f round here and he can bounce back from his Fibresand flop. Turnbury and Star Story may be his main rivals.[Adrian Cook]

Found steady pace against her when favourite for Newcastle maiden last time and concern this will be tactical too, but right in contention on previous second in 1m4f Wolverhampton handicap; now switches to Polytrack.

Hooded last twice, third over 1m2f here after being allowed to set own pace before off the mark in good style in 1m Chelmsford maiden latest; needs to progress again now handicapping and stamina for 1m4f to prove.

Useful hurdler at about 2m; did not handle Fibresand last time but very much a contender on two previous efforts when going very close in 1m2f handicap here and then romping away with 9.4f Wolverhampton maiden.

Triple winner in plating company in first half of last year when with Jamie Osborne; not much positive since (refused to race once) but dropping quickly in weights and switches to blinkers on second start for new trainer.

Losing run has mounted up and is 4lb out of handicap here, but was creditable third off this mark over C&D last April; three of his four wins have come round here, two over C&D, and is tactically versatile so not discounted.
