Struggling for form under both codes of late, and again too keen when well held over hurdles last time. On a lenient mark based on pick of his form, so can't be ruled out in this company.
Stablemate of East Indies. Best effort for a while when 2L third of 10 to Ravenous over C&D last time. Over two years since his last win, however, and that losing run is not coincidental. Risky.
Hasn't gone on since winning a 1m AW maiden last year for Karl Burke. Did not look to stay when tried at this trip at Sandown on his return, and remains easy to take on.
Has won twice over this trip this season, and fairly handicapped still, but hung badly when beaten at Windsor last time, and can't afford such antics here.
Won her first three starts of the season at up to this trip, and bounced back from a shock defeat over 2m at Beverley when winning again at Ffos Las last Wednesday. Thriving, and will make a bold bid again.
Improving, and went down fighting when beaten narrowly by Contebasse on second start in a handicap at Doncaster, prior to scoring narrowly at Yarmouth on latest start. All out there, so must improve a little for this step up in trip.
Dual flat winner over 7f and 1m for William Haggas, but limited impact for current yard, his latest fourth at Beverley not appealing as solid form; pulled up over hurdles earlier this month.
Stays well, and best effort when third over 2m at Beverley on penultimate start. Not seen to best effect on AW last time, but remains a maiden, and others more compelling.
Last Year's Winner
Altra Vita (5/4), Encryption (11/4), Rydan (15/2), Enchanting Enya (10/1), Poucor (12/1), The Secrets Out (12/1), Native Soldier (20/1), Musikel (25/1), East Indies (25/1)
