Back to winning ways over this distance on good ground at Chester last time out. Interesting despite a 4lb rise for that success.
Returning from well over 18 months off when finishing runner-up over this trip at Ffos Las (soft) last month. One to note in this contest.
Fair form in two starts since winning over an extended 2m on good-to-firm ground here in August. Races off a mark 4lb higher than for that victory.
Narrowly beaten over an extended 1m6f at Chester (soft) on his penultimate start. Fair fifth subsequently and interesting upped in distance.
Bidding to complete a hat-trick having won her last two starts. Came home 7L clear over an extended 2m1f at Ayr (heavy) last time out and would appreciate any rain.
Well held over an extended 1m3f on debut for this yard at Haydock (good-to-soft) early last month. This trip much more suitable.
Finished a close second over 2m at Kempton in an AW handicap in August. Disappointed there subsequently and more needed on this occasion.
Winner over 1m6f at Carlisle (good-to-firm) in June. Placed over the same trip since but didn't convince over an extended 2m here back in July.
Successful over 2m2f at Pontefract (good-to-firm) in June. Failed to place since and others hold stronger claims on this occasion.
Returning from a break when finishing well beaten over 2m at Kempton in July. Absent since and probably best watched at present.
Improving with racing since returning from a break and was the winner over a handicap over an extended 1m6f at Chester (good-to-soft) last time out. Races off a 4lb higher mark in this event.
Placed second the last twice including over 1m6f at Haydock (good-to-soft) two weeks ago. Races off a 1lb higher mark and is of interest once more.
Struggled in three starts since winning over 1m6f at Ripon (good) in August. Remains on a mark 2lb higher than for that victory.
Returning from a break when finishing last of four in a 2m handicap at Beverley (good-to-firm) in August. Probably best watched at present.
Placed twice over middle-distances earlier this year. Well beaten at Hamilton (1m4f, soft) last time out however and others make more appeal.
