Won on second start for this yard on the beach at Laytown two starts back. Nowhere near that level at Chelmsford last time and is now 4lb lower back on turf. Tough task giving weight away all round here.
Has a habit of blowing the start but having dropped in the weights he ran on well to win nicely at Gowran Park (1m, good to firm). Up 3lb here on first start for new yard and will need to brake on terms but still well-in on old form.
Won three times last year and paid the price with the handicapper. Remains a bit high in the weights and would prefer an easier surface. Starts life for new yard today so market check wise.
Suited to this sort of track having completed a hat-trick at Brighton earlier on in the summer. Struggled off this new mark since and will need to be at his very best to come out on top here.
Winner here over 1m1f back in May off a 3lb lower mark. Not so good in the main since but bounced back to form with a good run at Epsom two weeks ago when he got rolling too late. Ideally would like a little further but a player if backing that up.
Previous C&D winner who has been struggling for form this term. Held when dropped into class 5 company at Lingfield last time and this is a tougher race. Others have stronger credentials here.
Only 3lb higher than for last win at Kempton back in November. Signs of a return to form the last twice and was a tad unlucky at Epsom two weeks ago. Mark is workable and could be involved if backing that up.
Doesn't look easy to win with and was readily brushed aside at Epsom when last seen two weeks ago. Faces competition for the lead here and looks vulnerable on the balance of form.
Won final of three starts as a two-year-old at Brighton. Not shown any progress so far in two starts this year despite attracting market support on the first occasion. Down another 2lb and returns from a four-month break. Market check needed.
Has been unable to add to his Lingfield maiden win (1m3½f, soft) from a year ago despite going close a few times. Best form over much further than this so trip is a real worry.
Still 6lb higher than when winning a weak event at Redcar back in August. Didn't get the best of runs when not beaten very far at Windsor last time and would have a squeak if able to back that up now.
Course winner that has been running over 1m2f of late but most of his best form is over 7f/1m, so a return to this trip helps. Mark is in free-fall but would need to bounce back to very best to win this.
