Back to same mark as when winning over this C&D in May, however last two runs have been very disappointing and needs to bounce back.
Down in grade and distance following a poor run at Sandown. Hasn't convinced in recent runs on this surface and others preferred.
Infrequent winner but has continued to run to a consistent level. Will appreciate the drop in distance after going down narrowly over this C&D two starts back. Should be involved again.
Now 4lb higher than when winning at Chelmsford two starts back that would put her right in this. Unsuited by drop to 7f here last time but still needs to show she is suited by this surface.
Had plummeted in the weights before bouncing back with an improved fourth at Bath. Has two C&D wins to his name and looks a leading contender off this mark.
Veteran who is on a long losing run. Has been tumbling in the weights to a career low mark but needs to lift on recent form.
Had shown promise and improvement on her third start over 7f at this course so was very disappointing on handicap debut back on turf. Possible this surface may be the key and not one to give up on just yet.
Showed more promise at Epsom before a very poor run at Leicester. Needs to improve and probably best watched on AW debut.
Just one win from 33 starts but best effort for new stable came when second at Wolverhampton. Disappointed over further since and although drop in trip will help, others look more convincing.
Caused a big shock when winning at huge odds on seasonal reappearance but form has regressed since and improvement required on AW debut.
Gained an overdue second career win three starts back but a bit below that in two starts since. Needs to find more off this current mark.
11-race maiden who has only beaten two horses home in his last five starts and continues to be one to oppose.
Does seem to stay this trip but after a very disappointing run over it at Chelmsford it's likely better to wait for a return to a furlong shorter. Proving very inconsistent and others look more solid propositions.
