Bloodsweatandtears scored over track and trip on his latest start and remains well handicapped on last season's win here.

Copper Trade is another with scope for further progress and finished closer at Chepstow recently while Gypsy Rider and McConnell have both won here this season, but have been well beaten off higher marks since.
