Poor strike-rate of two wins from 47 starts and only got his head in front once since 2012. Well beaten in two starts this year and hard to fancy in current form and plenty to find with most in this field. Wears a first-time visor.
Very effective hold up performer on his day and winner of a valuable contest at York in October. Not guaranteed to get a strong pace to run at here though and probably better on quicker ground.
Failed to win last year and his best run looked to come when dropped into handicap company for the first time in the Ayr Gold Cup (finished eighth). Denied a run in his only start after that, again over 6f. Can be slow away and wouldn't want to do that in a racce with little pace, but is capable of winning in this company and his yard have made a good start to the season.
Has bounced right back to form this year and impressive winner of a Newmarket handicap when last seen on good to firm ground. Has proven himself in softer conditions and he looks the one to beat in this company.
Career best at the Curragh last summer but bit of a mixed bag since. Has his first start in Listed company now and likely to struggle upped in class and no surprise if he needs his return to action.
Didn't need to improve to get back on the scoresheet for the first time since 2015 at Chelmsford last time but this certainly looks tougher and his form is a little below the level required to take a race like this. Top jockey booked and yard in form so not dismissed out of hand.
Two time C&D winner and only narrowly beaten in a Group 1 contest at Newmarket in July 2015. Holds the best form in the race but missed the whole of 2016 and likely to need this run after a significant absence.
Progressive filly who justified favouritism in the Stewards Cup last year. Not at her best on final start of last season and not a great deal of promise in her comeback run but sure to get back on track at some stage this year and yard couldn't be in better form.
