Was in good form at Newcastle in May, winning over this trip and going close next time after a 5lb rise. Not as good on turf, however, as recent runs suggest and still vulnerable from this mark.

Has run with credit in all four starts this term, winning at Ayr (1m, good to firm) in May, when 7lb lower, but bettering that twice since. Return to 7f is no problem, he has a good draw here and is considered.

Scored over 7f at Ayr (good) in August, when 2lb lower. Almost matched that on his reappearance at Wetherby (7f, good to firm) last month. Same mark today and can have a big say.

Ended a 23-race losing run at Carlisle (6f, good to firm) last time. Unpenalised for that apprentice race success. Would be no surprise to see him follow up from reasonably good draw.

Scored over Pontefract's stiff 6f (good) last year. Matched that effort when a neck second at Carlisle (5f, good to firm) in May. Has it to prove where stamina is concerned, while double-figure draw also a potential sticking point.

Yet to win a handicap, but has largely been consistent this season. Stays this far and acts on fast ground. More needed for the win, but very much an each-way player.

Has been limited to just nine starts since last winning at Thirsk two years ago. Has not given much cause for excitement in that time and can only watch him here.

Has twice gone very close in handicaps, both from lower marks than this, including at Wetherby (1m, good to firm) two starts ago. Out of sorts on AW last time and more needed back on turf, but entitled to consideration.

Won a division of this in 2016, when 7lb higher. Ended the lengthy losing run that followed that with success at Southwell (6f, AW) in March. Has run reasonably well in two recent turf starts, one of them here, and has each-way claims.

Yet to make the frame from 15 starts, but did run well in a blanket finish here two starts ago (6f, good), when 3lb higher. Not as good over 7f at Wetherby last time and still has a fair bit to prove.

C&D maiden win in 2013 (good to firm) remains her sole success. Not disgraced after a break at Nottingham last time, but drawn wide and can be taken on with some confidence.

Didn't showed much before her handicap debut, and showed even less then, when an 11L last of 10 at Thirsk (6f, good to firm) last month. 4lb drop looks insufficient to change the outcome here.

First past the post here (6f, good) last month, before losing the race in the stewards' room. Well beaten all starts since and returns here over longer trip with a fair bit to prove.

Betting

Forecast

Ventura Crest (7/2), Rebel State (9/2), Size Matters (9/2), Extrasolar (11/2), Chaplin Bay (15/2), Robben Rainbow (8/1), Mecca's Spirit (10/1), Deben (20/1), Miss Dd (25/1), Money For Luck (40/1), Tom's Anna (50/1), Silk Mill Blue (50/1), Symphonic (50/1), Off The Scale (66/1)

Verdict

Not a very deep contest. Extrasolar will be popular after escaping a penalty for winning an apprentice race last time and he can again go close. Preference, however, is for SIZE MATTERS, who made a good reappearance, has a decent draw and can find a bit more improvement yet. Rebel State is not ruled out and the same applies to Mecca's Spirit, while Robben Rainbow, Ventura Crest and Deben are others who could have a say.
