Winner of seven races from 41 starts and stepped up markedly on seasonal debut when finishing 1L second at Musselburgh (good-to-firm) last time. Races off a 1lb lower mark on this occasion.
Winner of this race 12 months ago and bidding to complete a hat-trick following a couple of wins over this trip on the AW this spring. Useful apprentice takes the ride once more and he is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Returned to form when finishing 1L third over this trip at Nottingham (good-to-firm) on Saturday. Interesting if making a quick reappearance.
Successful four times in claiming and selling company since winning a four runner handicap over this trip at Chelmsford in February. Vulnerable to better handicapped rivals.
Held in two starts so far this season most recently on soft ground at Ripon last month. Better ground forecast here should see her in a better light.
Decent effort in finishing third on his seasonal and stable debut at Pontefract (5f, soft) earlier this month. One to note in this contest.
13 race maiden but placed twice over this trip on the AW earlier this year. Fair effort back on turf last time but likely to find at least one too good once more.
Fair efforts in two starts so far this year including when tackling selling company over 6f at Thirsk (good-to-firm) on Saturday. More needed here.
Successful seven times on turf but finished well held at Pontefract (5f, good-to-soft) last time. Has won four times over C&D in the past.
Successful twice last April but struggled in four starts for this yard subsequently. Market support would be interesting on seasonal debut.
