2¼L second to likely favourite Itlaaq over 1m5f at Musselburgh latest. Has the advantage of a strong rapport with today's rider so should go well as usual.
Infrequent winner but back to last winning mark and placed in latest three races including good second over C&D latest. Should again make his presence felt in a competitive handicap.
Veteran had a resurgence of late since fitted with blinkers and with today's jockey he is two from two. Won again at Musselburgh latest and while slight drop in trip is against him he still rates a leading contender.
33/1 in recent handicaps at Epsom (sixth of seven) and Beverley (fourth of 10). More needed here but gets 2lb back and seems to get on well with today's rider.
Now 5lb lower than when twice third in June and excuses for latest run where he may not have stayed 1m5f. Can expect better back to today's trip and appeals as a likely sort off this mark.
40/1 third when upped to 2m½f at Wolverhampton two starts back but didn't convert form when back to 1m4f at Newbury next. Not fancied until he returns to longer trip.
Kempton AW winner in April has gone off favourite for all three races on turf this season but was pretty disappointing over C&D latest when a remote fourth. Capable of better.
Finished fifth in each of last three races but handicap sliding and now 1lb lower than a mark which she was only beaten a short-head off over C&D last season. Possibly needs softer ground.
Maiden of 14 races but placed on six occasions including first two for this yard. Makes belated return here and 2lb out of the handicap on ground possibly faster than ideal.
Over two years since he last won and little to get excited about in four races this year. 4lb out of the handicap and easy to oppose.
