Her mark is falling quickly after some below par efforts this spring and she looked far from happy on this track when she raced here in May, hanging under pressure. Not hard to look elsewhere in her current frame of mind.
Lightly raced and did win as a 2yo, handicapper immediately gives him a chance after his Wolverhampton effort last time but it wasn't terrible and it came off the back of a long absence. Should strip fitter here and isn't ruled out.
Best known for his exploits on Southwell's Fibresand but is just at home here, only beaten a length over 7f here in May and this trip suits just as well. Bit below par last time so needs to bounce back, but that's not impossible.
Has a great record here, three wins and four places from 12 starts, one of those victories coming on his latest start here where he outbattled Fintech for a narrow win. Handicapper sensible with a 3lb rise and should go well again.
Hard to win with, last win coming in 2014 and although he went close here over 7f in May, he's simply too inconsistent to be looked at as the likely winner. May pop up again one day, but you'll be broke backing him by the time he does.
It's been a tale of steady improvement with him for much of the year, winner over C&D last time out (despite hanging) with the drop in trip proving no problem. 3lb rise for that but no saying he's finished winning yet. Not discounted.
Go back to 2016 and there is a win on the card on this track, so handles it fine. Twice a winner in the winter but recent efforts rather suggest he 's gone off the boil, and it's not that hard to look at others for the winner.
Looked to be going nowhere quickly until given a pair of blinkers at Bath at the weekend and he went and sprung a 40/1 surprise, getting on top late in the day. Can't be sure he'll follow that up, given overall profile, though.
