Mark Walford's BIT OF A QUIRKE (nap) has been in unstoppable form in the last two months and after three consecutive C&D wins he completed a four-timer when battling well at Chester last Saturday. He has another 4lb rise in mark to deal with but is open to more progress and may be able to dominate again to make it 6-7 at this track. The main danger is another improver Geetanjali, who justified favouritism with something in hand at Bath 19 days ago and is still unexposed at this trip.[David Moon]

Front-runner who made it 5-6 here when completing a hat-trick over C&D 16 days ago and extended his winning sequence when battling well to score at Chester last Saturday; up another 4lb but could continue on the upgrade and is strongly respected.

Good second when upped to 1m2f here (second-time cheekpieces) on penultimate run and improved her strike-rate to 3-11 when justifying favouritism at Bath (1m2f, firm) 19 days ago; up 5lb but that latest form was a personal best and is respected.

First-time hood did the trick when breakthrough winner at Chepstow (1m, ninth attempt) last month but didn't really build on that when well-held third under another positive ride at Pontefract; 2lb lower here but needs to kick on again and has stamina to prove at this new trip.

1m2f winner on soft at Doncaster in March but not matched that form in three subsequent runs; latest fifth of 14 at Ayr (1m2f, good) was a respectable effort but needs to step up on that here and would be more interesting on slower ground.

Unplaced in three starts over 6f last summer and weakened into remote eighth of 12 on handicap/seasonal debut at Leicester (1m, good to firm, first run since gelded) 16 days ago; well related and still unexposed but has quite a bit to prove now upped to 1m2f.

Solid third on nursery debut at Musselburgh (7f, good to firm) last August but tailed off at Thirsk (1m, soft) the following month and same story when upped to 11.6f at Haydock (good to firm) on return last month; visor now goes on and needs to get career back on track.

Won one (9.5f, AW) of nine French Flat starts, up to November last year; sold for 25,000euros later that month but pulled up on hurdling/stable debut in June and finished tailed-off last back on the Flat at Wolverhampton (1m4f, 66-1) two weeks ago; first-time cheekpieces now replace blinkers and has plenty to prove.
