C&D winner but somewhat blew his handicap mark in a good race here two starts back and looks unfairly treated off the back of that.
Consistent type who's second behind Sutter County was a respectable effort last time at Newcastle. Return to this course is a positive but she will need a strong pace to run at.
In fine form of late and only just touched off by the re-opposing Wild Approach last time. Jockey well worth his claim negates the rise somewhat and he ought to run another big race.
Maiden form in Ireland has worked out particularly well and like to need this run on debut for new yard, having first start after an absence.
Won his maiden here two starts back but well-beaten last time out and handicapper may have got slightly carried away by his sole victory.
Cost £48,000 as a two-year-old and still looks ahead of his mark. No doubt this is his toughest test but there should be more to come. Market confidence would be significant.
Last Year's Winner
Major Jumbo (7/5), Blitz (3/1), Wild Approach (4/1), Monte Cinq (15/2), Ferocity (8/1), Dazacam (10/1)
