Arrives in form from a successful AW campaign winning and finishing second twice in his last four starts. 3lb rise looks fair but yet to prove he stays this far.
Returned from hurdling in great form with a good second over C&D and a win over further last time. Versatile regarding ground and has won off 2lb higher in the past. Every chance of following up.
Has been in sparkling form for some time on the AW, subsequently rising significantly in the weights. Wasn't suited by the way the race panned out last start and gets to race off 5lb lower mark back on turf. Should be in the mix again.
Was back to last winning mark when just missing out last time back up to this trip. Up 2lb (negated by apprentice) but down in grade and has his ideal conditions once again.
Possibly not suited by the quick reappearance but was below form in his ideal conditions last start. Best form at shorter and on easier ground.
Suited by the extra distance now but never travelling and well beaten on stable debut following absence. Best watched.
Has dropped to a decent mark and improved effort down in grade last start despite not settling early. Can be competitive but this is tougher.
Ran well off this mark last season when running consistently well after switching to this current stable. Won on reappearance last season, has shown a preference for quick ground and there could be more to come again at four.
Failed to build on promise of reappearance and unproven at this far. Needs to find improvement.
Had plummeted in the weights when getting an overdue win on AW and now up 2lb. Probably remains ahead of the handicapper and hit the line strongly that suggests this trip is within his range.
Dropped too far in trip last time and better suited by this test. Tough ask though from out of the handicap.
