Only has one decent effort to her name this year (2nd at Haydock) but hasn't got anywhere near that since with her latest three runs all being very disappointing. Looks off the boil at the moment although she is below her last winning mark.
Won twice over 6f for his former yard last year but hasn't threatened to come close to that sort of form so far for his new yard. Latest effort was below-par and despite a good draw he's overlooked in this.
C&D winner whose been in consistent form and scored for the first-time since his two-year-old days on his penultimate start. That was only a narrow win though and he can be a little lazy; showed that side of his personality last time.
Third in this race last year she is also a C&D winner who has already had a busy season and turned in her best effort so far last time out when winning at Redcar (6f). Now off a mark of 58 she may find this mark too testing (never won off this high).
May well have needed the run last time out at Ayr when returning from a year off (went with some enthusiasm). However, he did stop fairly quickly when asked for an effort and that leaves him with a question mark against him.
Recent AW winner on the Newcastle Tapeta he's yet to win on the turf (0-10) and that factor plus the wide draw are the drawbacks to his chance today. Has to be respected but liable to come up short here.
Versatile sort who is very much at home over this trip but has to overcome a fair absence here with her two earlier races in the year having an air of working her way back to form. Well treated off this mark but could need this outing; drawn wide.
Returns from a sizeable absence to make her handicap debut with the stable having had considerable success from this family. Likely to show more in this sphere in time but may well need this but worth a look in the market.
Looked in danger of becoming disappointing when with his former yard but did reverse that decline to a certain extent on his stable debut last time. Needs to do more though to take a hand here but can't be totally written off.
Now approaching the veteran stage he did show a little more on the AW last time building on his comeback run without looking a winner waiting to happen. Way below his last winning mark but hard to see him running to that level now.
His best form when 3rd over a mile making his AW debut was only modest and he failed to repeat it last time when stepped up to 1m2f also on the AW. Now back to his shortest trip for a while and can be slow away which would make this a tough test.
Tried over a couple of different trips since being sent handicapping but neither appeared to show her in a good light and she remains with little form. Her draw isn't the easiest either and not one to place much faith in.
