Broke his maiden when wearing cheekpieces (retained) for the first time over 6f at Newbury (good-to-firm) last time out. Has to defy a 3lb higher mark if he's to follow up.
Novice stakes winner over 5f at Pontefract (soft) last July. Struggled in two starts since joining this yard however and others make more appeal.
Recorded her second victory when winning over 6f at Thirsk (good-to-firm) ground last month. Disappointed since however and interesting to see how she fares in this contest.
Nine race maiden and placed third on soft ground over 6f at Pontefract at the start of May when returning from a break. Well held over 7f subsequently and return to this trip should suit.
Maiden after seven starts and a fair effort in finishing fourth in a maiden over C&D on good ground last time out. Likely more needed if she's to break her maiden in this contest.
Victorious over C&D on good-to-firm going in May. Placed over 7f subsequently but proved a disappointment the last twice. Return to this venue may bring about a revival.
Placed once from six starts and has finished well held on both outings since being gelded last autumn. Wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Finished runner-up to a progressive rival over 5f at Redcar (good-to-firm) in May on debut for this yard and first start since being gelded and having wind surgery. Held since and stepping up in distance.
Failed to trouble the judge in three starts in novice contests last season and finished well beaten on seasonal and handicap debut last month. Others hold stronger claims.
