Losing run goes back to 2015 and now stands at 21 runs without a win and best watched after latest disappointing run at Epsom.
Had some strong form at the end of last year and looked a horse who could kick on again this season. Looks to have needed both runs back but interesting if there is market support.
Useful performer in France and ran well on first start for new yard and also first run as a gelding. Looks to have more to offer and can be competitive.
Proving to be a touch inconsistent and while he'd be interesting based on his narrow second two starts back, this ground looks quick enough.
Was progressive in 2016 but missed who of last year. Well beaten on both starts this year including on stable debut and easily overlooked for now.
Such a likeable and consistent performer who got a deserved success on his second run back. Seemed to find improvement again for the quick ground and 5lb rise shouldn't be a problem. Stable jockey has chosen him over other runners.
Finished fourth to Magic City over the C&D last time and on a competitive mark at present. Struggles to get his head in front but place possibilities.
Progressive last season before losing her way a touch. Ran well enough on reappearance over C&D and should improve for the run. Perhaps though would prefer easier ground.
Showed the benefit of two runs back when a narrow second to Magic City over the C&D. Should be better again and looks a leading player.
Has really struggled on his last three starts since returning to turf and hard to make a case for at present.
Sprang a surprise when winning this race of 10lb lower last year but that was also after three runs behind him. Hard to recommend off this mark after moderate reappearance.
Respected off the back of C&D win last start and up 6lb. That was a back to form run and he should be competitive again and closely matched with the runner-up Imperial State.
Most progressive last year running up a winning streak and after two runs back scored again last time over C&D. Could run well again but up 7lb and in a tougher grade.
Looked to be running into form at Thirsk but a bit below that at Doncaster last time on this sort of ground that leaves the impression he needs a softer surface.
Didn't back up Carlisle win when upped in class last start and best watched in a tougher grade once again.
Showed promise on turf in Ireland and won on stable debut before finding trouble in next two starts. This is tougher but open to more improvement than most.
