Two wins in the last three weeks have propelled her up the weights, but she won from today's mark last season and her winning run may not be over.
Consistent sort who completed a hat-trick in 2017 and is below his last winning mark. All but one of his six career wins have come in July/August.
Conditions turned against him on last turf start but had been in good form on the AW prior to that. A slight drop in the weights gives him a chance to bounce back.
Back to his last winning mark but his two runs this season do not suggest he is ready to capitalise.
Useful horse on his day but below par in recent seasons and finished well beaten on both starts this year.
Runner-up in this last year off 4lb higher. Recent form has been a mixed bag but he has gone well on both visits here.
Came to hand early last season and conditions here should be more favourable than they were for her comeback run.
Represents last year's winning stable and much to like about his comeback run. That has put him up to a mark 5lb higher than when last successful and that makes this task a tough one.
Lost her way in 2017 following a successful juvenile campaign. Hood tried now but best watched until showing evidence she retains ability.
His last two wins have come at Newcastle and he is below his last winning mark. Not easy to catch right but the type to pop up at least once a year and blinkers tried now.
4lb above her last winning turf mark, but she is tough and consistent and will be happier if the ground remains as good as forecast. Blinkers tried first time.
Nine-race maiden who can take a strong hold and needs to be dropped out at the start. The promise of a strong gallop will help and he has place claims.
Made all to score at Newcastle and not well drawn last time. Nicely drawn but faces plenty of competition for the lead.
Shock winner on a slow surface at Catterick last autumn. Poor since and conditions are forecast to be much quicker.
