Slightly mixed form in novice/maiden company and from a good family, though probably best watched off this mark on handicap debut.
Carries a 6lb penalty for winning at Leicester last time out, and should be able to go well again here off the back of that effort. Trip/ground fine and is one for the shortlist.
Mixed form in maiden/novice company, though did show some example of ability. Gelded for the first time here and not ruled out off this mark on handicap debut.
Only beaten narrowly at Ripon last time out when going down by a neck. Up 2lb but has shown he can operate off similar marks to this in the past and trip/ground should both suit him fine.
Not at her best over her last few starts, but has shown plenty of ability in good handicaps in the past, and he has a notable jockey booking.
Ran a fair race on turf/handicap debut at Doncaster last time out, but more needed down 1lb now on a sounder surface.
Far from disgraced on handicap debut at Leicester last time out, but improvement still needed off the same mark if he's to play a hand here.
Winner at Nottingham last time out when stepping up to this trip for the first time. First run for this yard and sounder surface shouldn't be an issue; 6lb rise poses the biggest question.
Showed little in three starts in maiden/novice company and needs a big step forward on handicap debut off this opening mark.
