Beaten only a nose at Brighton last time out and raised 4lb for that second placed finish. That seems a little harsh but previous winner on fast ground; considered.
Winless since his debut back in 2015, and though he's arguably slightly better on turf he's very tough to fancy on the basis of his recent AW form.
No win on turf for two and a half years, but that was off a much higher mark and no reason he shouldn't go well here having run well on the AW course here lately.
Arguably better on the AW but is a previous turf winner and ran a solid race at Windsor on grass when last seen. Not ruled out off the same mark.
Much higher in the weights than at the time of his only previous win on turf, but narrow defeat at Wolverhampton last time out gives him a big chance if arriving in that sort of form.
Makes his stable debut here having failed to find any improvement on the switch to handicap company on his last couple of runs. Down 2lb but liable to struggle off that mark.
Just 2lb above her only previous winning mark, and has put in two solid races on the AW the last twice, including here last time out.
Not exactly the most consistent but this looks less competitive than the Brighton race she finished down the field in last time out, and she holds minor claims if bouncing back from that.
