17-race maiden ran one of her better races last time out when fourth of 11 at Hamilton over an extended mile. Gets another 2lb back from the handicapper so should be competitive here.
Uninspired efforts of late mostly over 7f before seeming to not stay 1m2f last time out. Handicap now some 15lb below career high and sooner or later he will get competitive again.
Hamilton winner over 1m½f was disappointing at Newcastle on the AW next but ran better back at Hamilton latest where not beaten far into fifth. This sharp 1m may not play to his strengths but still one of the more likely sorts.
Off the mark at the 12th time of asking when winning at Yarmouth over 1m last time out. 4lb rise makes life tougher but a repeat of her last effort would surely see her go very close in this modest contest.
10-time career scorer but almost three years since latest of them. Little encouragement in two recent runs and handicap falls again now.
Landed a hat-trick at Southwell back in January but not achieved a great deal since. Considerably more effective on AW as shown with three moderate turf runs of late. Others make more appeal.
Ran best race this season when only beaten 1¼L into fourth on the AW at Newcastle last time out. Generally as effective on turf so some chance here off the same mark but not the most consistent.
14/1 winner at Nottingham was third back there latest at 33/1. First race at this course but one of the less exposed horses so could go well.
10-time winner including once over C&D way back in 2015. Unplaced in nine starts this term hinting that he may not be the force of old. Need to see some encouragement before recommending him.
22-race maiden has shown little since a positive effort when second on soft ground at Hamilton in June. Will hope for more rain to try and reinvigorate him but a risky proposition given his record.
Effective from 7f to 1m2f and put together three solid efforts in last three starts at Wolverhampton and Beverley twice. 1lb out of the handicap but still appears to have a decent shout.
Not won on turf since May 2015. This his first race of the campaign so likely to need it and not getting any younger.
Over two years since his only win in a 7f Musselburgh handicap. Just the one race this campaign where he was beaten some 22L into a distant eighth. Leap of faith required in first-time cheekpieces.
More than five years since her only career victory. Not disgraced in midfield efforts in two starts this campaign and gets help from the handicapper now but hardly the sort to be backing now.
