Experienced campaigner who has been well held on recent starts. Remains high enough in the weights and is readily opposed.
Progressive performer on the AW weather and returns to the Flat, for which she is 0-2. In good heart, consistent and worthy of consideration.
Has hit the frame only once in eight starts over a variety of distances. Down to a career-low mark and is fitted with blinkers for the first time.
Well beaten in two starts this season after returning from a lengthy absence. Handicapper has been slow to react so he seem to have plenty to prove.
Just one win in 23 starts and has shown only fair form in three outings this season. He is 2lb lower than when beaten 18L on latest run over 1m6f at Goodwood.
Only success came in a Lingfield seller last July and has generally been well held in handicap company in subsequent outings. Still high enough in the weights.
Lingfield winner over this distance in December and ran well off 2lb higher at Kempton last time. First run on turf off a viable mark, so one to consider.
Off the mark at the 17th attempt when making all on heavy ground over 1m6f at this track at the end of last month. Different conditions, 7lb rise and shorter trip pose questions, but at least he is in form.
Experienced campaigner who has a disappointing strike rate of 3-47. Beaten a long way despite finishing second at Lingfield last time and has work to do off 1lb lower.
Maiden after 10 attempts over several distances. Hard to fancy on seasonal reappearance, although handicap mark is on the way down.
Four-times winner on the Flat and over hurdles, most recently over jumps at Plumpton in March. In reasonable heart for this return to the level. Sports cheekpieces for the first time.
Only win in 16 races came in a Wolverhampton claimer last July. Runs off a lower mark on turf, but his five efforts on grass were not up to his AW displays.
