Broke his maiden at the third attempt when winning over this trip at Hamilton (good) last time out. Good draw as he attempts to follow up.
Debut winner on heavy ground at Leicester in April. Highly tried the last twice and interesting dropping in grade for this contest.
Finished third on both starts to date most recently over 5f on good ground here over five weeks ago. Step up in trip should suit.
Held on both starts so far but put in an improved effort when 4L sixth last time. More needed if he's to take this.
Beaten 7L over C&D on good ground when making his debut last month. Likely to have improved for the experience and is one to note.
Struggled when sent off a big price for a Newbury (6f, good-to-firm) maiden on debut a month ago. Others make more appeal.
Marked improvement on debut when finishing third over an extended 5f at Wetherby (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Further improvement needed if he's to taste success on this occasion.
Unraced daughter of Epaulette purchase for £10,000 last year. Probably best watched for a yard who are just 2/51 with their youngsters in recent years.
Unraced daughter of Dandy bought for €9,500 last year. Dam successful at two and worth a check in the market on debut.
Well beaten eighth of nine on debut at Pontefract (6f, good-to-firm) earlier this week. Tongue tie worn that day is retained for this contest.
Fair efforts in two starts so far including over this trip at Lingfield (good-to-soft) last time. More needed if she's to take this event.
