Improved from debut to win at Doncaster, with the front two pulling 6L clear of their rivals. Not disgraced on return at Ayr on heavy ground over 7f and the drop back in trip could be in his favour on handicap debut but the opening mark looks stiff.
Produced a good third over C&D on debut and has steadily progressed throughout the campaign over 5f. Listed company too tough last time out but it would be no surprise if there was more to come back up in trip here.
Beaten short priced favourite on his two starts prior to handicap debut last time at Yarmouth. Could only finish fourth there and form of that race not really working out. Others preferred.
Showed very little on debut over C&D but his two subsequent runs were promising enough at York. Starts out for a new yard here and expected to go well on handicap debut if he handles conditions.
Produced a much improved effort on third career start when runner-up at Carlisle and the form of that race done no harm by the winner in a valuable sales race at Newmarket on Saturday. May have been let in lightly by the handicapper here.
Shaped okay in a couple of runs at Thirsk and coped well with heavy ground at Carlisle last month when runner-up, albeit no match for the winner who has won a Listed race since. Opening mark looks fair and should go well.
Improved from debut to finish fifth in a big field seller at York in June. Took another step forward when runner-up on yard debut at Chester but hasn't been seen since that effort and may need this on return.
His best effort in four starts came on AW at Newcastle. Disappointed on handicap debut at Carlisle last time though and must improve.
Unplaced on each of his three starts but produced his best effort yet when fourth of 14 at Carlisle last time, sticking to his task well (Fling Said No runner-up). More needed.
