C&D winner that arrives here in good form and ought to be on the premises if running to his best. Drawn wide but has enough time to settle and gain momentum. Needs a strong pace though.
Won over C&D in February and has maintained his form with two subsequent wins at Brighton on the turf. Ran well off this mark last week (1m) but needs everything to go right for him over a trip which appears to be his limit.
Consistent filly that makes her return for a new yard after a break since April. Weighted to reverse past form with Tilsworth Lukey but obviously needs to prove her well being after her absence. The betting can guide here.
Mainly consistent but has never been at her best on the AW before and needs to dramatically improve on her previous form on the Polytrack if she's going to play her hand in the outcome. Others more convincing.
Comfortably justified favouritism over C&D last week and created the impression he still has more to offer. Likely to be popular in the betting once more, but his new trainer is on the crest of a wave and it may be dangerous to ignore the portents.
Generally goes well on the AW and has a course win to his name. However, he's up in trip has a bit to prove after a faltering effort last time out.
A thirteen-race maiden but has posted a couple of fair efforts at this course since joining his current yard. The rider's 7lb claim could be a valuable tool and the gelding represents fair value for an each-way punt. Risky for win only though.
Still a maiden and jury still out on her ability to handle the surface after a couple of moderate efforts at this course. Others have fewer questions to answer.
Well beaten in three novice events and makes very limited appeal from out of the weights on his debut run in a handicap.
Poor form in three maidens followed by a very modest effort on handicap debut hardly inspires the confidence for the filly to make this a successful day at the office. Best watched from out of the weights.
Being kept busy but has yet to trouble the judge this season from nine previous starts and hard to envisage the filly being good enough to play a strong part in this.
