Tailed off last when last seen in September. Best watched on return from lengthy absence and prefers easier ground than this.
Former C&D winner but disappointed last time and is a hard horse to catch right. Others remain better handicapped and overlooked here.
Top rider in these events booked but has been disappointing in two runs back this campaign and others preferred at present.
Disappointed last time but generally consistent albeit prefers softer ground. Trainer has a remarkable record in this race having won it in four of the last 10 renewals so has to be worth a check.
Maiden after 11 starts and was beaten out of sight over the C&D last time. Hard to make a case for on current form.
Took advantage of a falling handicap mark when winning on the AW last time coming from an unpromising position to win narrowly. He's probably worth more than the winning margin and gets to race off a lower turf mark.
Has shown little in three starts on the AW this year and this infrequent winner remains one to avoid at present.
Had shown consistent level of form with a win and two seconds but disappointed back on quick ground last time and that remains a worry.
Hasn't won for many years but hasn't been the easiest to keep sound. Had been racing with promise until a disappointing run last time and others preferred off that.
Ran well at a price on seasonal reappearance and likely to come on for the run. However can be inconsistent and this extra furlong remains a query.
Blinkers replaced by a visor but form has become regressive and hard to make a case for following two well beaten runs this year.
Has shown revitalised form lately with a win and two places and still well handicapped on old form. Distance and going are ideal and likely to go close again.
Has dropped to an attractive mark and all three turf wins have come at this track. Can be hard to catch right but should be competitive once again.
Maiden who has shown little that suggests he can get involved and once again has to race from out of the handicap.
