Promising second over 1m2f on debut for this yard last month. Well beaten in a highly competitive handicap over this trip subsequently but remains of interest here.
Running well in recent starts and finished runner-up over this trip at Thirsk (good-to-firm) last time out. One to note racing off a 1lb lower mark.
Out of form since finishing fifth at Thirsk (1m4f, good-to-soft) on seasonal debut in April. Had wind surgery since his latest outing and interesting back over 1m4f.
Dual winner this season including over this distance at Haydock (good-to-firm) in June. Disappointing in two subsequent outings however but remains of interest.
Winner over this trip last autumn but struggled in two starts this year and is returning from a break following an 8L defeat at Catterick (1m4f, good-to-soft) in April.

Mutadaffeq (11/8), Atkinson Grimshaw (11/4), Sea Youmzain (7/2), Kajaki (13/2), Mr Sundowner (33/1)
