Won his maiden in impressive fashion at Lingfield last year but has not managed to get his head in front since and given a break after disappointing when 2/1 fav back at that course last time. Drops in trip and entitled to need this on return.
Inconsistent sort, particularly on turf but ran a fine race over C&D last time behind a promising sort. 1lb rise for that fair and looks likely to get a good pace to aim at here.
Got his head back in front at the end of last year but has struggled in two starts this season. Didn't beat at rival home at Haydock last time and has a bit to prove at present.
One win in 29 turf starts and that came in a Curragh maiden back in 2015. Can often be seen travelling well, only to find trouble in running or gets there too soon, as seen last time out. Has run well over C&D from higher marks and has place claims.
C&D winner who has returned to form for this yard on AW in recent times. Shaped as if amiss last time but given time to recover from that run and he's useful when granted an easy lead, though that looks unlikely here.
Looked progressive in the early part of 2017 and found his form again here last time over C&D. 4lb rise looks fair but not guaranteed to get an easy lead here and different ground conditions.
Running well in 2017 without getting his head in front but recorded an impressive success at Lingfield on return. Perhaps made his effort too soon at Newmarket last time and still relatively unexposed.
Has won three times in eight starts but each of those on AW and yet to win in four turf runs. Arrives bidding for a belated hat-trick and runner-up from last time has been franking the form of that win but needs to prove his effectiveness on turf.
Belatedly got off the mark in a Brighton handicap but struggled in a deeper race here last time and others preferred.
