Gradually dropping toward his last winning mark, but he has got progressively worse in his last three starts and the draw may not be helpful.

Winless since beating Jallota as a juvenile and record is now 1-31. Appeared to have found his new level last time, but this is far more competitive.

Has enjoyed a fruitful winter but still just 1-21 on turf. His latest run at Ayr suggests there are more races on grass to be won with him, but they are more likely to come in easier contests than this.

Has won two of his last three in this grade and was second in the other off 4lb higher. Drop back into this company with the prospect of slower ground makes him interesting.

Going from strength to strength and did not mind the drop to this trip last week. Should once again get a decent pace to run at and he handles any ground.

Subject of a market move last time when looking favourably treated. Drops another couple of pounds and yard amongst the winners, but remains hard to fancy from a difficult draw.

His last two wins have come off marks of 73 but he is unexposed at this trip. Rain would be detrimental and he looks handily drawn if conditions remain favourable.

Back to form at Hamilton when third under a hefty burden from a poor draw. Below his last winning mark and looks to have good each-way claims.

Gave 11lb and a beating to Hee Haw a year ago so clearly well-treated. Shaped better last time but still without convincing he is ready to strike soon.

Without a win since 2013 but appeared to have found his new level when placed in a couple of class 5 races. Disappointing in this grade last time and visor goes on.

All his seven wins have come in lower grades and he is yet to win off a mark this high. Plenty to prove after three months recovery from a busy winter.

Down the field in this 12 months ago when conditions were too fast. More attractively weighted this time too and any rain would help. Nice draw and good claimer booked.

In good form last month but shaped poorly on Tuesday and she is usually more consistent than that. Best watched for now.

His three victories have come at Carlisle and Pontefract so obviously suited to a stiffer finish than here. Yet to be competitive from a mark this high so questions to answer from what could be a tough draw.

Started the year in promising style but he has lost his way since and a hood goes on now to try and halt the slide.

Only had to run to his current mark to land a seller last time. This demands a lot more, but he has a good claimer and a handy draw to help.

Useful on his day for Michael Dods, but hit rock bottom last time and hard to make a positive case for him.

Best run on turf came off a lower mark and he was particularly poor on his last start. Much better on AW tracks and probably has little of the improvement in him that will be needed to land this.

Forecast

Daschas (4/1), Presidential (5/1), Quick Look (7/1), Ninjago (8/1), Suitcase 'n' Taxi (9/1), Hee Haw (10/1), Fantasy Keeper (10/1), Short Work (10/1), Paddy Power (12/1), Toofi (12/1), B Fifty Two (14/1), Dandy Highwayman (16/1), Bogart (16/1), Athollblair Boy (20/1), Rantan (20/1), Central City (20/1), Rose Marmara (25/1), Wediddodontwe (25/1), Aprovado (33/1), Classic Pursuit (40/1)

Verdict

The forecast for rain on Saturday are positives for QUICK LOOK, Short Work and B Fifty Two. All figure on good marks and the selection has a good recent record in this grade. Presidential is in top form and handles any ground but needs to defy another rise in the weights, whilst Ninjago is not ground dependant and appeared to be hitting peak form at Hamilton.
