Seemingly thriving at present and won in dominant fashion last time, despite hanging in the closing stages. 4lb rise potentially lenient and well suited to softer conditions; should run well.
Landed four races in 2016 including a C&D success, with the last of his wins coming off 6lb higher. All his wins have come over 6f with cut in the ground so good chance he can give another good account
Well suited to 6f on soft ground and back down to his last winning mark after some moderate efforts on last couple of starts. First-time blinkers will need to bring about a career best as there some well-handicapped sorts in the contest.
Winner off an OR of 78 at the start of last year's campaign and has won over C&D before. Finally took advantage of a much reduced mark at Carlisle last month and followed up with a win at Hamilton last time; still well-handicapped and in fine form.
On a long losing run at present but starting to look dangerously well-handicapped and has run some promising races in defeat this season. Doesn't mind some cut in the ground but may not want it too soft, as seen at Chester last time.
Won a maiden at Epsom for Charlie Appleby but badly out of form in five starts for this yard and only beaten a total of two home the last twice. Plenty to prove.
Impressive C&D winner earlier in the season and gained second win of the season at Carlisle off a 2lb higher mark last month. Has won off this mark but not much room for manouvre against some well-handicapped types.
Heavy ground winner at Hamilton last year but yet to get her head in front this campaign. May have done better last time if she had settled better in the early stages and looks on a workable mark so can't be dismissed.
All three wins have come over 5f but arrives on a long losing run and showed no improvement on debut for this yard last time out. Others arrive with stronger claims.
Has won five races in his career but yet to win with soft in the going description. Unplaced on last three starts but has given the impression this step up in trip will suit on occasions.
Not won since 2015 and while he shaped like a win may not be far away earlier in the campaign, he's been disappointing on his last couple of starts. Hard to fancy in current form.
Beaten on all six starts and only came close once, on the AW at Newcastle in a maiden. No signs she's well-handicapped off this mark and likely to struggle.
