16-race maiden plugged on for a remote third last time and did not look a winner in waiting nor ready for a shorter trip.
Winner of four races at up to 1m but most recent success came in September 2016. Plum last on latest start and hard to fancy.
Acts on anything other than really soft and his best recent run came on last visit here. Turf form is inconsistent nowadays and no surprise if there was something good enough to beat him.
Effective from 1m-1m2f and was having his second run since last August when beaten in a 7f seller. Had little chance at the weights with the winner, but nicely treated here and the stiff mile will suit.
For a son of Kodiac it is a surprise it has taken so long to get him on firm ground. Has done most of his racing on AW surfaces and went down narrowly off a slow pace at Chelmsford last week.
1-23 on turf and tends to give himself too much to do. Showed a bit more last time and worth another go at this trip, but there will be few queuing up to back him.
Dual Newcastle winner this season and came from a long way back to finish a close third at Wetherby. That form has not worked out but this stiffer mile will be in her favour.
Has drawn a blank since landing two races in 2016. His turn appeared near on penultimate start before underperforming on the AW (not for the first time). Likely to pop up one day at a big price and hard to dismiss in a race this poor.
Best recent efforts have come over further or on softer ground. Well beaten back at this trip last time and questions to answer.
Has winning form from 7f-1m2f but has done most of his racing lately over the former. Last three wins have come with some cut in the ground and he is out of the weights here.
Outran odds of 80/1 last time. That was a poor race and she was ridden to get the trip. This is more competitive and she will need to improve.
