Bidding to complete a hat-trick here following wins at Salisbury (good-to-firm) and on the AW at Lingfield last time out. Races off a mark 6lb higher than for that Lingfield success and is an interesting runner here.
Maiden winner over this trip at Wolverhampton in April but well held in three handicap runs on turf since and needs to step up on what hes's shown so far if he's to take this.
Successful twice over 1m2f here including on good-to-soft ground in June. Disappointed in first time cheekpieces (absent here) in an amateur riders contest at Sandown (1m2f, soft) last time and has placed twice over this trip in the past.
Taken a while to get the hang of racing but now won two of his last three starts including on good-to-soft ground at Lingfield over an extended 1m3f last time out. Has been raised 3lb for that victory and is an interesting contender in this.
Wore a hood (absent here) when making a winning debut over 1m2f at Newbury (good) last month. Was an expensive purchase as a foal and as a half-brother to classy stayer Red Cadeaux is likely to appreciate this step up in trip.
Justified odds-on favouritism when winning a Pontefract (good-to-firm) maiden last time out. Making his first appearance over this trip on that occasion and worth a check in the market on handicap debut.
nine race maiden and well held on each of his last three outings. Wore a hood (retained) for the first time when well beaten third over 2m at Chelmsford earlier this month and more needed here.
Making his belated seasonal debut and having his first outing since being gelded when finishing runner-up at Leicester (soft) over this trip last time. Satisfactory handicap debut on that occasion but probably needs to improve to take this.
