Winner of 13 races in a 101 race career but out of form so far this season and probably best watched at present.
Placed over 1m1f at Musselburgh (good-to-firm) when making his seasonal debut earlier this month. One to note racing off the same mark on this occasion.
Improved on seasonal debut when finishing fourth over 7f at Catterick (good-to-soft) last time out. Interesting runner in this contest.
Placed twice on the AW at Newcastle earlier this year and not beaten far when fifth over 7f at Wetherby (soft) on his return to turf last time out.
Victorious at Musselburgh (7f, good-to-firm) 11 months ago but had just three starts since and finished well beaten on seasonal and stable debut last time.
Ended last season with some heavy defeats and it was a similar story on seasonal return at Wetherby (7f, soft) three weeks ago. More needed here.
Successful three times for Mark Johnston but beaten 20L at Doncaster (7f, good-to-soft) when last in action in the autumn. Debuting for a new yard in this.
Dual winner for previous yard but well beaten on debut for current stable at Pontefract last time and more needed here.
Placed over an extended 1m at Nottingham (good-to-soft) last month but held twice subsequently and others have a more obvious chance in this contest.
Ended his career with Tom Clover by finishing runner-up at Kempton in October. Held fifth on debut for this yard over 7f at Wolverhampton last time.
Successful over 6f at Hamilton (good-to-firm) last June but struggled since and stamina to prove on second start since joining this yard.
Finished mid-division on stable and seasonal debut at Wetherby (7f, soft) three weeks ago. Likely to have improved for that outing.
Struggled in three starts so far this year and returns to 1m having finished well beaten in first time cheekpieces (retained) over 1m2f last time out.
Ran well to finish third over C&D when making his seasonal debut earlier this month. Similar underfoot conditions forecast here and he is an interesting runner in this event.
Finished last of seven at Beverley (good) over an extended 1m on return to turf last month. More needed if he's to break his maiden here.
Successful in a 7f maiden at Doncaster (soft) last July but out of form in the main since and well held on both starts this term.
