Didn't really build on his promising Thirsk run when he disappointed at Doncaster last time out although he didn't get much room to operate in. Worth another chance here taking a slight drop in grade and well drawn.
Form in four runs this year has been moderate to say the least and she's hardly shaped like a winner waiting to happen. On the plus side she is now back below her last winning mark but still needs to show more to be of interest.
Cheekpieces go on for the first time and she remains a maiden despite taking a step in the right direction on her penultimate start. Went backwards on her handicap debut last time and from a yard that has had a torrid season.
Without a win this year and it's not hard to see why given that he's developed into a really temperamental sort and should be treated with caution. His latest laboured in different headgear doing nothing to dispel the question marks about him.
Didn't really show much progress in maidens after a promising debut run at Doncaster but ran with credit on his handicap debut last time. Gave the impression there that 7f would suit and still looks unexposed.
Tricky customer who is likely to travel well and then not find too much for pressure his run at Wolverhampton in early August highlighting that trait. Consistent enough in two runs since then but hard to love for win purposes.
Fails to make life easy for herself often pulling far too hard in her races which hamper her later efforts. This grade looks a touch higher than she is capable of winning though and others are preferred.
Has been very consistent of late with four runner-up slots in her last five starts and a 6f win completing that set. Didn't quite travel with her usual zest last time out and may well benefit from a return to 7f from a good draw.
Can only be called modest at best and is still a maiden after 14 attempts and a fairly inconsistent one at that. Ran one of his better races on his penultimate start but rather predictably he didn't run the same last time out.
Has offered very little this year and appears to be getting worse and worse by the run. Given a break since her last run and now with a new yard but still makes little appeal in this.
A handicap debutante who on her maiden runs so far makes very little appeal having only shown poor form so far and runs from an awkward wide draw here.
