Yet to add to sole maiden win but is rapidly falling in the handicap in the process. More required on recent form.
Well on top at the finish at Thirsk on latest start and looked like he had more wins in him based on that, however faces much slower ground here and a 7lb rise. Declared at Carlisle on Thursday.
Just one win from 22 starts but only just failed to make all at Musselburgh on latest start. Rallied late and extra furlong here a plus. A leading candidate if handling slower conditions.
Just 1lb higher than last winning mark at Ayr in July and handles these conditions. Can be competitive again but vulnerable to better handicapped rivals.
Well handicapped at present being 5lb lower than last winning mark. Can be involved but remains hard to predict and all winning turf form on a quicker surface.
Has dropped to a very dangerous mark in conditions that are in his favour. However needs to find improvement from four starts for his new stable.
Gained just a third career success at Redcar in August but below that level off revised mark in three runs since. Dropped 2lb but others look better handicapped.
Sole victory in 37 starts came back in 2016. Running consistently well for his current stable and handles these conditions, however concern he keeps finding one too good.
23-race maiden who took well to a first-time visor (retained) when second at Ayr. Can be competitive but concern over the drop in trip and yet to show a liking for cut in the ground.
Irish-raider who is respected on decent fourth at Carlisle before struggling in a stronger race at the Curragh. Only had the seven starts and open to more improvement than most.
C&D winner who is very well handicapped and returned to form with a fourth on soft ground at Carlisle. Clearly suited by these conditions and looks a leading hope down in grade.
All three wins have come at this track including one over this C&D. Needs to find improvement though on current form and continues to blow her chances at the start.
Veteran with three of 10 career wins coming at this course. In good form at present and likely to be involved again.
Last of three career successes came in April 2016 and needs to find plenty on recent form. Remains regressive and easy to oppose.
Just two wins from 32 starts and on a long losing run since the last which came over this C&D. Tough ask again from out of the handicap.
