Narrowly beaten in a maiden contest over an extended 1m when making his debut a fortnight ago. Likely to play a leading role in this contest.
Victorious over 6f at Ayr (good) in July and acquitted himself well in a higher grade subsequently. Decent effort when third of 14 at Wetherby (7f, soft) on seasonal debut and likely to run well once more.
Off the mark at the second time of asking when victorious over this trip at Wetherby (good-to-soft) earlier this month. Interesting to see how he fares in this contest.
Held on both starts so far most recently over 6f at Doncaster (good) earlier this month. Probably best watched at present.
Finished well beaten in two 7f contests this year and beat just two rivals home in a 14 runner contest at Wetherby (soft) last time.
Never a factor prior to finishing 39L tenth on debut over 1m at Thirsk (good-to-soft) last month. Likely to struggle once more.
Improved on debut effort when finishing 11L fifth at Wetherby (7f, soft) last time out. Work to do if he's to reverse form with Regulator in this.
Well held in both starts so far this year and likely to be of more interest once tackling handicap company.
Never involved when beaten 14L into seventh on debut at Doncaster (7f, soft) last month. Probably best watched in this contest.
Made a promising debut in a 7f seller at Newmarket (soft) last August but not gone on from that and is making his seasonal and stable debut on this occasion.
Beat just one rival home in a seven runner Haydock novice contest over 1m last month. Others have more obvious claims.
