Five-time winner has made the frame four times this summer without success. Fifth of 10 here over 6f in August and others appear to be open to more improvement.
C&D winner over two years ago off a 6lb higher mark. Any market move should be monitored.
Five-time C&D winner that latest coming in November off a 3lb higher mark. Not disgraced on turf over the summer and very much in the mix back here.
Six-time winner here, five of them over C&D. The latest coming in January off a 3lb higher mark. One to consider back here in first-time cheekpieces.
Course winner here over 5f in January. Second of eight over C&D in March off a 3lb lower mark and may struggle against one or two.
Course winner that has won over this trip at Lingfield and Wolverhampton previously. Well beaten over 5f recently here and looks up against it.
C&D winner who is handily 2lb lower than his last winning mark. Well held in three starts over the summer but could go well back here.
The removal of the hood seemed to do the trick when bouncing back to form to win at Killarney in July. Beaten since and place claims at best here.
C&D winner here getting off the mark at the track at the sixth time of asking in September finishing a ½L ahead of Gunmaker off a 3lb lower mark.
15-race maiden who has been to Godolphin, raced in France and has been well beaten in a couple of starts for current connections. Others look more convincing.
Winner over this trip of a Wolverhampton handicap off a 5lb lower mark in August. Well held since and may struggle here.
Weakened in the final furlong of a promising run at Roscommon in a 7f handicap last month, as beaten favourite, following a number of disappointing performances since April.
C&D winner here in December off a 3lb lower mark, but has been generally well held in a number of below-par starts in the summer. First time blinkers inconceivable to produce the required amount of development needed to play a role here.
Winner on her only visit here in December 2016, landing a 6f maiden. Likely to find one or two better handicapped sorts lurking.
