The draw hasn't been kind to the thriving Jorvik Prince here and although he is still one for the shortlist, with Bertie Blu Boy in the field he might find it hard to boss this from stall ten. Temple Road and Roundabout Magic should find this being run to suit and are considered, while Absolutely Awesome is on a good mark if reviving. That said, the lightly raced LOOK SURPRISED might be the answer back at 5f and dropped into Class 6 company.[Paul Smith]

Four-time C&D winner, most recently when produced with a strong late run to score 20 days ago (Class 5); very strong form claims and has a good draw so has to be taken very seriously; inexperienced apprentice on board.

Won turf maiden last August and encouraging third off 1lb higher mark at Wolverhampton last November; well beaten at Kempton last time but was caught out wide over 6f and that probably not the run to judge her on; not ruled out dropping into a Class 6 for the first time.

In the form of his life at present, completing a quick hat-trick in emphatic fashion at Chelmsford last week; another 5lb higher this time but that is less of a concern than the widest draw.

Played late when overcoming wide draw over C&D last month and then a solid third to Roundabout Magic 20 days ago; should find this being run to suit but lower draw would have been preferred.

Wolverhampton winner on debut for this yard last May but hasn't fared too well in three starts since a break, including when never sighted back at Wolverhampton in November; on a good mark if reviving though and market should guide.

Infrequent winner and although pick of her form for current stable brings her into the reckoning, she's not fired on her last two starts; good draw but others more appealing.

Into the veteran stage now but has speed to burn and seven course wins to his name; struggling with the handicapper when last in action and returning from a nine-month absence here; drop in class is at least in his favour.

Multiple C&D winner who should be sharper with his recent return from a break behind him; doubt he's getting better at the age of ten though and vulnerable in this field.
