Disappointing that he's yet to add to maiden win having often shaped well in handicaps. Raced too keenly when upped in trip last start and may be vulnerable again over further still.
Just 1lb higher than when winning at Doncaster in March but very disappointing when well beaten on last three starts and recent form remains a concern.
Two career wins have come at this track and just 2lb higher than last success on turf. Soft ground was against him at York and should be competitive.
C&D winner who again went close here on return from a break although does go particularly well fresh. A touch high in the weights but should be involved again.
Strong stayer who gained a second C&D win when beating Mambo Dancer last time. Only 1lb worse for a half length success and still open to improvement.
Didn't add to sole success for David Lanigan when racing for David Simcock last season. Likely best watched on stable debut and first run since last November.
Much improved since moving up in trip and saw out two miles well on recent win at Ffos Las. Now won five from six in handicaps and should make a bold bid under a 6lb penalty.
