Had been running consistently well without winning this season before disappointing at Windsor. Could be competitive but needs to bounce back.
Won three in a row at Southwell earlier in the year but has really struggled since including on that favoured surface last time. Needs to find considerable improvement back on turf.
Maiden winner over this C&D and has raced to a consistent standard in four handicap runs since. Probably needs to find some improvement in first-time hood.
Visor (removed) seemed to revitalise him when fourth at Thirsk on soft ground. Goes on this surface and can be competitive again.
Disappointed on handicap debut in 2016 following maiden win at Doncaster. Ran well on reappearance following over two years off the track and although a bit to find looks open to plenty of improvement.
Below form when last seen in a claimer in April on last run for Jamie Osborne. All wins have come on the AW and may be best watched on this surface on stable debut.
Enjoyed a very successful and busy year and bounced back from a below par run at Wolverhampton with a close fourth in a better race at Windsor. Has to be a leading hope down in grade.
C&D winner when losing maiden tag on stable debut and has run to a similar level in two third places since. Got caught wide at Chelmsford and can be involved again.
On a great mark on old form and only found one too good when the subject of a big gamble on second start for new trainer. Likely to make another bold bid off same mark.
Now 10lb lower than last winning mark for previous trainer Mark Johnston. Drop back in trip may help but remains inconsistent and others look more solid propositions.
Some late progress over a half furlong shorter at Bath but form only ordinary and remains with a bit to prove.
Missed the whole of last year and hood back on after latest disappointment. Questions to answer on four runs this campaign and on step up in trip.
