Inconsistent sort but useful when he's on a going day and returned to form with a good second at York last time. Drop back to 7f a potential positive and yard in good form at present.
A three-time winner over 6f and acquitted himself well on second start over this trip at Newmarket in September. Has a tendency to miss the break and showed that trait again on return earlier in the month but should come on for that effort at least.
Won four times in 2017, most recently in last year's renewal of this from 4lb lower and gaining a second C&D win. Struggled in handicaps throughout the rest of the year but returned to form at Chester last time and capable of running well back here.
Not won on turf since 2015 when a winner at Lingfield over 6f. Finished 2017 with an AW win at Newcastle and may have needed the run on return at Ascot last time. Has run well in competitive handicaps from higher marks than this so not ruled out.
Only won once since 2015 when winning at Windsor on soft ground in October. All his turf wins have come with cut in the ground and he's still above his highest winning mark; others preferred.
Runs his best races when able to dominate from the front and while he's been below form lately, the gelding should improve for the step back up to his optimum here. Below his last winning mark and capable of running well.
Won twice this winter since joining her new yard, most recently when getting the better of Swift Approval in a Class 2 at Kempton in January. Not in the same form since but very few miles on the clock and may improve for quicker ground here.
C&D winner in August on soft ground, prevailing for the first time since 2013 and returned to form with a good second at Doncaster last time. Useful claimer takes off 3lb and he's an interesting runner if building on his latest effort.
