More than capable off this sort of mark and things have not panned out for his on his two starts back on the flat. Cheekpieces added now and there should be a pace to run at here which will help.
Keen going sort who has a tendency to hang left under pressure which is not likely to be ideal here given the camber. Weighted to go well but chances would increase hugely if settling better.
Front runner who had been running consistently well until weakening pretty quickly at Redcar (1m2f, good to firm) last month. That was her first disappointing run and should bounce back. Ran well previous visit here and is a player.
Slightly worrying that her best piece of form came when bossing a soft ground handicap at Nottingham (1m½f) off a 9lb lower mark. Couldn't cope with the rise in the weights last time and similar questions to answer here.
Last of eight at Lingfield over this trip on return to turf last month. His best form comes on the AW and this is a step up in class. May find this tough going under these conditions once again.
Although he has won over this trip still a question mark as to whether it is his optimum. Close up at Nottingham last time and more than capable of bouncing back.
Sent off favourite for his first two starts in handicaps and was disappointing. Well held next time at Sandown and has now had a wind operation since that last run. Hopes pinned on that having a positive effect.
