Dropped to a very handy mark and comes here on the back of a really solid effort over C&D last week. Big chance if the cheekpieces have the same effect this time around.
Winner of a Lingfield maiden in February but form has taken a dive since then. Already has a bit to prove and added uncertainty about handling the tapeta surface only adds to the worries.
Fair effort in a better looking race last time out and claims boosted by a decent draw and proven liking for this course. Handy 7lb rider's claim confirms her as one for the shortlist.
Goes well here (dual C&D winner) but was out of sorts when last seen and may be best watched on her first start since August.
Creeping up the weights after a successful spell but has held her form impeccably and is likely to be a popular choice. Needs to actually prove she handles this surface but has really found her level in recent times and may still be on the up.
Out of sorts since winning at Lingfield in July and comes here with a bit to prove. Just 2lb above that last winning mark, so not too badly treated if he can pull something out of the fire.
Consistent on the AW and is a previous course winner, so has a good bit going for him. Still 3lb higher than his last winning mark, however, and others may have a sharper edge on these terms.
Ended a long losing run back in March and has been pretty consistent sine then. Has won over C&D and generally effective at this track. Sound place claims but not one to go overboard about for win only purposes.
Previous C&D winner but best form has been registered at Lingfield and arrives hereon the back of a mixed bag of recent form. Others offer more consistency and are likelier winners.
Just ahead of Cruise Tothelimit when winning here in June but reverted to type virtually straight afterwards and has been expensive to follow since. On a good mark but does seem to have lost his way just now.
In good form without winning of late but goes well here and cannot confidently be ruled out; despite having never won over this trip before.
