Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick after wins at Wetherby and Ayr. Won going away last time out and must be the one to beat here only up 2lb for that run despite his career high handicap mark.
Four wins from 14 starts and has run well in defeat twice this campaign. Not fully exposed and has two C&D wins to his name so not one to rule out.
Back well below his last winning mark but in a poor run of form at present and shown nothing in three starts this year. Hard to fancy.
Still a maiden after eight starts and best effort came with plenty of cut in the ground. Last of six here last time out and hard to fancy on the evidence of that run.
Well beaten in a hat-trick bid last time out at Chelmsford but she had excuses that day when slow to break and pulling throughout much of the race. Doesn't always settle well but there's a suspicion we haven't seen the best of her yet.
On a long losing run at present and below form on turf starts this season. Looks in need of relief from the handicapper.
