Only win came in maiden company with give in the ground and now has just second start on the AW. Has been running in stronger company and gets a welcome drop in class. Could be competitive off a falling mark.
Likes this C&D and won this race two years ago off the same mark. Returned to form over the mile here on latest run and gets a welcome drop to his preferred trip. Overdue a win and should be in contention.
Just one win but went close to doubling that in a stronger race over this C&D in February. Well beaten on both starts on turf lately but far better on AW and could easily bounce back to form off a good mark.
Has struggled on last three turf starts but is better on this surface. Narrowly beat Gun Case over the C&D last November but more required to confirm that on these terms.
Well treated on old form for Ed Walker but has now been well beaten in all seven starts for current stable and remains best watched.
Finally broke through on start number 22 when running on strongly over this C&D. Form of that is only moderate and with his inconsistent profile isn't one to get carried away with off a 4lb higher mark.
Hasn't won now since 2016 and best AW form in the past has tended to be reserved for Southwell. Well held on return from absence in June.
Has dropped to a really low mark and was back to form with a good third on turf. Just was on too strong a pace and didn't quite see it out so this half furlong less could be ideal. Likely to to make a bold show.
Veteran whose form has gone off the boil since a third at Ayr in May. Hard to have confidence in despite rapidly falling mark.
21-race maiden who has been well held in all four starts this campaign. Didn't impress in previous start over this far and hard to recommend.
