Mussleburgh winner in June, but has been unable to follow up that success after going up in the weights, including when outclassed in the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood last time. Needs some respite from the handicapper.
Overcame a long absence when justifying favouritism in a Doncaster novice event last month. First run in a handicap and may well have got in lightly.
Winner of 14 races, but has been out of sorts on last two starts in which he has failed to beat a rival. Hard to recommend until showing signs of a revival.
Completed a hat-trick of wins at Pontefract in August, but inevitably climbed the weights and was held in fourth at Doncaster last time. Lower AW rating gives him some hope.
Winner over 5f at this course in April, but has lost his way since and comes into this contest on the back of a poor run at Catterick. Others make much more appeal.
Last Year's Winner
Missy Mischief (1/1), Merhoob (5/2), Captain Jameson (5/1), Dubai One (11/2), Classic Pursuit (6/1), Bosham (10/1), Tavener (16/1)
