It's highly likely Primo's Comet is still well handicapped but he looks the type to excel when weaving through a big field and this may not play to his strengths. Rumshak may benefit from wind surgery, while the in-form Jabbarockie also enters calculations, but this could go the way of class-dropping BATTEN THE HATCHES. He is well treated on last year's best and there was more encouragement over 6f here last month.[Paul Smith]

On the up in the second half of 2017 and continued his progress this year, winning handicaps at Nottingham and Haydock; latter success was a ready one and big player despite the steadier of his penalty.

AW winner on debut and added Redcar handicap last June; close second at York 12 months ago came off 2lb higher; struggled so far this year but latest effort a bit more encouraging and a return to forcing tactics back at 5f could help, as should the ease into Class 4 company; one to take very seriously.

Had threatened a win before coming through with strong late run to score at Newcastle last month; 4lb rise doesn't handicap him out of things but suspicion he's going to be seen to best effects in bigger fields with horses slowing in front of him.

Catterick winner as a 2yo and runner-up in two of her four starts this time round; disappointed at Beverley 16 days ago but still relatively early days and could yet have a bigger effort in her.

Good form from the front over this trip in early starts last year but flopped at Beverley on nursery debut and trailed home last in Listed Two-Year-Old Trophy; weakened quickly on seasonal return at Windsor seven weeks ago and has since undergone wind surgery; risks attached but mark not excessive.
