Last week's easy Chepstow winner HARRY BEAU (nap) is taken to defy a penalty in what looks quite a competitive race despite the smallish field. Island Sound was successful on his first outing since being gelded at Newcastle last month and has the potential to build on that, while Nick Vedder went close over C&D last time. Unexposed pair Nicklaus and Skydiving should also have a say. [Andrew Sheret]

Got up late to win 6f novice event at Redcar last October; yet to kick on as might have been expected but had to come from further back than ideal when fourth in muddling event over 1m here last week; drops back to 7f; still time for it to click.

Turf winner in three of his last six outings; recorded a 7l success in fast time at Chepstow (7f, good to firm) last week and looks sure to make a bold bid under 6lb penalty (due to be 2lb higher in future).

Bar a blip at Wolverhampton in April he's been most consistent since joining this yard at the end of 2017, finishing runner-up for the fourth time in his last five starts when narrowly denied over C&D (good to firm) 16 days ago; likely to be in thick of things again.

In good form at present, getting back to winning ways at Bath (5.5f, good to firm) last month before finishing second at Wetherby (7f, good to firm) three weeks later; however, nudged up another 2lb and this a higher grade.

Dropped 10lb since handicap debut and took advantage in 1m event on AW at Newcastle a fortnight ago (first run since being gelded); up 6lb but that form looks solid and Cameron Noble also takes 5lb off; should go well.

Definite ability in three 6f-7f AW runs in maiden/novice company but comfortably held in a pair of handicaps; effectively 5lb lower now if Nicola Currie's claim is taken into account but too much to prove in a first-time hood.

Matched the pick of his maiden/novice form when fourth on 1m Nottingham handicap debut (good to firm) 14 days ago; effort flattened out late on there so drop back to 7f may help; still unexposed.
