Impressive in staying on strongly and drawing clear of his rivals when winning over 1m2f here last time. More to come at this extra trip and 6lb rise may not be enough to stop him.
On a fair mark returning from hurdling and has been tried over further in the few recent starts back on the Flat. This trip suited in his younger days but ideally would want softer ground.
Lightly-raced but a touch disappointing last time following clear promise of previous stable debut. Looks to have plenty of stamina so there could be more to offer at this trip but does need to prove she wants it this quick.
Made stable debut over hurdles last month following a wind operation but dropped away tamely and was pulled up. Maiden on the Flat and although dropping to a good mark he's liked an easier surface previously.
Has dropped to a dangerous mark based on his old form and handles these conditions fine returning to turf. Needs to bounce back though from some poor AW form.
Five-race maiden who hasn't shown enough in two starts back both over shorter at this track. Needs to find improvement for extra distance and first-time cheekpieces.
No promise in two starts back on the AW following a lengthy absence. Yet to win from 11 starts on turf and best watched.
Has been competitive last twice including on turf at Nottingham. Now takes a significant step up in distance which would be a question mark based on old form.
Only win on turf came over this C&D back in 2016 and well weighted on that. Well held here on reappearance but has tended to be better for the run in the past and possibilities back up to this trip.
Yet to convince in handicaps on the AW and turf and more required now stepping back up from selling company.
Placed in a bumper but well held in last four starts on the Flat and no promise from handicap debut here.
Inconsistent performer who has been struggling for a while and best watched again following his latest well-beaten start at Brighton.
Showed nothing last year in three starts in maiden company each time at triple-figure odds. Upped in trip and best watched on seasonal and handicap debut.
