A winner on debut but struggled in Group company thereafter. Not seen for some time and has a bit to prove at present; entitled to need this run on return.
Proved highly progressive as a juvenile and got back on track back over the minimum trip at Ripon last time. 9lb higher for that now in a tougher race but there could be more to come.
A winner of two of her last three starts including turf debut last time at Nottingham. May be even better on a faster surface here so not ruled out only up 4lb in the handicap.
Well beaten second by Roundhay Park at Ripon two starts back and couldn't build on that when well beaten at Chester last time. Best efforts have come with cut in the ground and others preferred here.
Sole win in seven starts came at Pontefract in July. Shown very little for this yard in two starts so far and may do better when stepped back up in trip. Yard won this last year.
All four wins have come on AW and yet to get his head in front in nine turf starts. Better efforts have come on quick ground so has that in his favour at least but seemingly a bit more exposed than many of these.
Made it two wins from his last three starts at Musselburgh last time out having been a surprise winner over C&D (20/1) three starts back. Inconsistent sort but not out of this if ready to go on return.
Improved from her debut here to win at Catterick next time and ran well on return at Newcastle on return earlier this month. Live player if she comes on for that effort for a yard enjoying a fine week here.
C&D winner in July off a 12lb lower mark than this but lost her way towards the end of the campaign and shown very little in three starts this year. Seemingly needs more relief from the handicapper.
Soft ground winner at Redcarlast year and all her best efforts have come with cut in the ground. May come on for a recent placed effort at Nottingham and gets a useful claimer taking off 5lb so not ruled out.
Yet to win in eight starts but only narrowly denied last time when caught late and conditions in his favour here. Not ruled out.
A winner at Leicester last year and ran well when placed in a valuable sales race towards the end of the campaign. Drop back in trip not certain to suit but respected on her debut for new yard who do well with their sprinters.
Victorious on soft ground over 5f at Ripon in July and placed twice in handicap company since. May find conditions a little on the quick side here and entitled to need the run.
A winner over this trip at Bath on return this year but couldn't back that up at Doncaster (6f) earlier in the month when only third of seven. Drop back in trip could be in her favour and yard excel with their fillies.
Three-time winner at Newcastle this winter and progressing well but yet to place in nine turf starts and needs to prove he can be as effective here.
