Runner-up on nursery debut despite hanging and fairly consistent in each of her four starts so far. First-time visor applied and can progress but does need to find extra to win this.
Six-time C&D winner and 1lb below last winning mark. Went close to making that number seven here last time and likely to go close yet again.
Sole win came in a conditions seller but has gone close to adding to that on turf since. In good enough form to go well but concern that she was well beaten on previous try on this surface.
Showed enough at Yarmouth on very quick ground to suggest he can win a race in the near future. Makes AW debut but best form likely to come over a furlong or two further in time.
Broke through on start 20 over this C&D in a blanket finish. Below that at Catterick but will much prefer a return here and should be involved off 3lb higher.
Just four wins from 43 starts owes much to his tendency to be very slowly away and needs everything to fall right. Racing well at present and on a good mark but only one run previously on the AW.
Has only beaten two rivals in four starts and hasn't convinced in the process. Probably flattered in slowly run race over this C&D and remains best watched.
14-race maiden who has gone well in both starts following a break. Not certain he needs this drop in trip as he tends to race keenly and do his best work late over 6f.
Yet to win after 11 starts but went close behind Sienna Says over this C&D. Well below that back on turf but can't discount a better run back on this surface.
Not beaten that far with some late progress at Catterick and can pop into a place now and again but now a 51-race maiden and carries obvious risks.
Has a C&D win but has rather lost her way in recent starts including when well behind Sienna Says here most recently.
Veteran whose last win came way back in 2012 and current form is nowhere near good enough to be involved.
Irish raider making stable debut. Not on a bad mark but just one win from 34 starts and needs the change of scenery to revitalise her.
Bought for £33,000 as a yearling and bred for speed but has shown nothing when tailed off in all three starts and hard to make a case for on handicap debut.
