Confirmed the promise of a respectable debut at Haydock with back-to-back wins on his next two runs. Too keen when beaten 9L in Listed class last time and while he rates as the type to bounce back, the handicapper has taken no chances with his mark.
Won his maiden at a big price on debut but hasn't really gone on from that and he showed very little in a valuable handicap at York last time. Has a bit to prove at present and he's yet to experience ground as soft as what he will get here.
Improved from debut when green to win at Leicester next time out and has run to a similar level in two starts since, most recently in a sales race at York. Needs to improve for the first try at this trip.
Consistent sort who has only finished outside the top three once in his seven starts since debut. 4lb rise for his latest effort when runner-up at Goodwood perhaps a little harsh though and lacks the scope for improvement that some have in here.
Improved from debut to justify favouritism on her next two outings. Her win at Redcar last time can be upgraded having hung in the closing stages and she has a workable handicap mark.
Very disappointing when beaten at odds of 2/13 at Ayr in July but produced a better effort when winning at Wolverhampton on his third start. Needs to improve if he's going to have any chance of defying this mark.
Won a selling race at York on debut but her two efforts since have been below par and she needs to improve for the fitting of first-time cheekpieces.
