C&D winner who ran a game race in defeat at Epsom last time out. Form of that race looks rock solid and while he's 3lb higher, he's clearly thriving at present. Should go well here.
Has run some fair races in defeat at Meydan this winter. His propensity to start slowly is becoming more common with every run but he's on a lenient handicap mark and can't be ruled out.
Maiden winner at Nottingham on his second start but not won since and he's been inconsistent in those four runs. Well beaten last of 11 at York last time and has a bit to prove after that effort from this sort of handicap mark.
Arrives bidding for a hat-trick after back-to-back wins at Chelmsford. Hasn't looked as effective in four turf starts and on a career high mark here but fast ground will help at least.
Won a maiden at Sandown back in 2015 when trained by Richard Hannon. Won three times in Bahrain but he's struggled in the UAE of late and probably best watched on debut for his new yard.
Has returned in good form this campaign, getting his head back in front at Carlisle in May and not disgraced on ground softer than ideal at Leicester last time out. Up another 2lb possibly a bit hard but he will enjoy the return to quicker ground.
Found some form when encoutering soft ground towards the back end of last year and returned with a win in rain softened ground at Newbury on return. Below form on good to firm here last time and conditions a concern again.
