Dual C&D winner the last of which was in February 2017 off an 8lb higher mark. Clearly form has been in decline of late and others hold stronger profiles.

Boasts rock-solid form over C&D including landing a double in 2016. Put a series of runner-up spots behind him when landing a Wolverhampton handicap over this trip on Monday. Carries 6lb extra but sets the standard here.

Disappointing of late on turf but ran with plenty of promise when second of 10 beaten 2½L on her last visit here in May over 1m2½f. Worth a market check.

Six-race maiden at this track but has gone well here over 7f/1m in the past finishing in the runner-up position on two occasions. Rates an each way chance going up in trip.

Holds solid and consistent form over C&D not finishing out of the first four in any of his last seven starts at this venue over this trip. Looks a leading contender.

Boasts some decent form in native France but not repeated since arriving on these shores for trainer Paul Flynn. Best avoided on first start for another set of new connections.

Sixth of 17 beaten 2L on sole start at this venue over 1m in May. Has won a Sligo handicap since off a 6lb lower mark and is liable to find a couple stronger in this company.

Improved on previous starts for this yard when finishing third to Carvelas over C&D in January before blowing the start over the same trip here a month later behind Easy Boy. Form doesn't warrant support.

Running with plenty of promise recently including finishing second of nine at Ayr on Sunday. Yet to win in nine starts round here but has hit the frame on two occasions over this trip. Worth a market check.
