11/4

Winner of both of his starts over C&D. Ran well on return to action in a Newcastle 7f handicap last month beaten 1¾ in a seven runner bunch finish coming in fifth of the 14 starters. Should be a leading contender in this company.

6/1

Proved to be a revelation since switching to AW. Rattled off a four-timer between October and January this year with a win over C&D last of the quartet off a 3lb lower mark. Beaten since but a solid and consistent sort who should go well again.

8/1

Out of luck and bereft of any form in a number of Flat starts on turf towards the end of the season following promising efforts earlier in the year. C&D winner probably best watched on first start since August.

10/1

Running well in a number of starts on an AW surface since October including a second AW win at Wolverhampton last month over 7f off a 4lb lower mark. Requires plenty of respect.

9/1

Course winner that has also won over a similar trip. Winner off a 2lb lower mark over 1m here in January before a gallant effort from revised mark last month. Should get competitive dropping back in trip.

13/2

Ran three times last month on the snow plains of St Moritz winning over 4f at the start of the month. Winner of one of his two starts at this venue previously but plenty more needed in this company.

5/2

Won for the fourth time on the Flat last month when landing a first win over C&D in a 7K handicap off a 2lb lower mark beating Fuente a short-head. Can be expected to run another big race given his consistency.

Ginger Fox (5/2), Keyser Soze (11/4), Reeves (6/1), California Love (6/1), Elmejor (13/2), Magical Wish (8/1), Corazon Espinado (9/1), Young Fire (10/1)

Verdict
The six-year-old KEYSER SOZE can get back to winning ways here following a solid return to action in a Newcastle 7f handicap last month. The gelding was beaten 1¾ in a seven runner bunch finish coming in fifth of 14 and can hold off the attentions of his nearest pursuers in the shape of the Ginger Fox for trainer David Loughnane, a winner last month over C&D off a 2lb lower mark and the Robert Cowell-trained Reeves who landed a four-timer between October and January including a win over C&D.
