Impressive when winning a valuable handicap at Ascot in May. Failed to justify favouritsm at Newbury and didn't handle the track at Epsom last time. Still well-handicapped and should go close if he handles the track and gets a decent pace to aim at.
Ended last year with a win on the Rowley Course over 7f. Had disappointed this time around until an improved effort over C&D last month. Only up 1lb and should remain competitive.
Has a solid strike-rate on turf, winning seven of his 30 starts and on a workable mark. Seems to save his better efforts for Newmarket, as his form figures of 12116 suggest (over both courses). Well beaten last time at York but may bounce back here.
Improved from debut to win a maiden at Newbury but only seen sparingly since and presumably not the easiest to train. Makes his season return and probably best watched on first start since a wind operation.
Impressive when winning over C&D last time out and the sixth from the race has come out and won since. In deeper here against the opposite sex but handicap mark is workable, put up just 5lb for her win and not ruled out.
Has won three of his five starts and far from disgraced at Royal Ascot last time when tenth of 30 in a competitive affair. Every chance he's still on a workable mark and likely to run well.
Has run well on each of his three starts and took his form to a new level when winning in impressive fashion at Beverley last time out. Third has franked that form since and on a workable mark for handicap debut.
