Made all to win both starts this season and has obviously got the hang of things in handicaps. Up 7lb and tackling a new course, and distance, but has to be highly respected despite giving weight away all round.
Winner of a modest four-runner handicap at Nottingham in June but held in similar company since. However, he's already a three-time C&D winner, so would be dangerous to underestimate back at his favourite track, and reunited with Joey Haynes.
Well-bred colt that represents powerful yard/connections. Made good progress in maidens and, given the form of his last start has been franked since, it's likely there is more to come now he goes handicapping. Has to be a player.
Showed plenty of promise when making all to win a Windsor maiden last season but has yet to truly convince that he's trained on into his four-year-old campaign. Others preferred.
Won his second start in a handicap in a comfortable manner and possible there's a good bit more to come. However, he's up 6lb and needs to better his only previous effort on this surface, so correct to have reservations about accepting cramped odds.
Following a trusted path and has improved since being stepped up in trip. Responded well in first-time cheekpieces to win over C&D last time and has to merit an interest from just a 4lb higher mark.

Recordman (6/5), True North (4/1), Rapier (4/1), Majboor (9/2), The Eagle's Nest (12/1), Ourmullion (16/1), Spanish History (33/1)
