6/1

Bounced back to form at Haydock in August when winning off a reduced mark, and better effort since when third of 14 behind Gin In The Inn at Pontefract last time. Should continue in form, and not ruled out.

9/1

Best form in recent times has come at Pontefract, although not disgraced when fourth of 14 at Newcastle last time. Lightly-raced, and may yet do better, but does need cheekpieces to help him eke out more now.

Off the mark following wind surgery when taking a 6f novice at Hamilton in August, but although he's not been disgraced in three starts since, he hasn't improved, and looks in the grip of the handicapper at present.

13/2

Won by a wide margin over C&D in July, and several solid efforts in defeat since. Showed she doesn't need to lead when a creditable third at Musselburgh last time, but a bit more needed to land this.

20/1

Two of his three handicap wins this season have come here, and it's probably best to judge him on previous form than his latest below-par effort at Wolverhampton. Not ruled out if bouncing back as expected.

11/2

Has scored two handicap wins over C&D this season, and again ran with credit when beaten just over 2L in a hot contest of its type at Nottingham last week. Return to this venue in his favour, and one for the shortlist.

3/1

Running very well on the whole, winning at Ripon in August, and not getting the rub of the green when runner-up on last two starts, Still on a very fair mark, and likely to make a bold bid granted a modicum of luck.

9/2

Won twice here last year, including over C&D, and back to his best when runner-up over 7f here last time behind Stringybark Creek. Runs off the same mark now, and should give it his best shot from the front.

Not long with current yard, and back to form when 4¼ lengths fourth of 12 to Stringybark Creek over 7f here last time, although strictly held by Chickenfortea on that running.

Runner-up in a 5f handicap here last month, but better at that trip than 6f, and has been below form twice since. Others much more convincing.
