Out of the frame in three starts this season, but has not been disgraced. Soft ground is not an issue and in-form trainer reaches for cheekpieces for the first time.
Fair efforts on last two starts at Haydock and Muselburgh. Down to a career-low mark and is certainly one to consider.
Irish import who produced his best run for some time when third of 10 at Catterick last month. Seems to be running into form and should be in the thick of things off this rating.
Good second at Musselburgh last month, but disappointed when last of 12 at Catterick last week. Only win came with cut in the ground.
Won a couple of times off higher marks last season and served notice of a return to form when fifth of 12 at Haydock last week. Likes a bit of juice in the ground and is an interesting contender.
Not at his best on last two starts, but reproduction of his Pontefract third in June would give him each-way prospects. Favourably handicapped and goes on the ground.
Not at his best recently, but continues to slip down the handicap. Underfoot conditions should suit and he is worth a second look in the betting.
Landed a 7f Wolverhampton AW handicap at the end of May and has not been disgraced in two subsequent runs on turf. Down to a feasible rating and cut in the ground should suit.
Winner of a handicap over this trip at Catterick in June, but has struggled off higher marks since. Return to an easier surface should help, however, so he is not discounted.
Not beaten far on her last three starts and she continues to slip down the weights. Ground conditions not a worry, so she has to be afforded respect.
Very little to shout about since joining current stable from Sarah Robinson. Connections fit blinkers for the first time in a bid to find improvement.
Has been kept to 5f since joining this yard from Patrick Holmes and has run a couple of decent races. Both wins have come over 6f with cut so he has claims off a fair mark.
Last win came around this time last year, but recent Chelmsford display after a break was underwhelming. Others make more obvious appeal.
All eight of his wins have come at Ayr. Has reached the veteran stage and the signs are that he is not the force of old. Down to a career-low rating, though.
