Winner of the Thirsk Hunt Cup and third in the Cambridgeshire in 2017. Four of his six wins have come in July including his most recent, over C&D from today's mark. Poor on his last two starts but would have every chance if bouncing back.
Beat Defoe as a juvenile but only has a victory in a Class 4 handicap in 16 runs since. Fifth in the Silver Cambridgeshire last time and handles a soft surface so hard to rule out.
Had back to back AW wins during the summer, but held off her revised mark in better company last time.
2-12 record for Richard Hannon and joined current yard for 24,000 gns. Has undergone wind surgery and this easier than his last three turf starts.
3-3 for this yard and closely matched with Medieval on latest form. Hard to fault his claims given his rate of progress.
Windsor winner last term who has found one too good on each of his starts this term. Has hung away from the whip on his last three starts and he will need to be a lot tougher here.
At his best on a soft surface so disappointing he showed less than anticipated last time. Gets a further drop in the weights and a visor for this, but hard to envisage him bouncing back with his yard quieter of late.
Produced off a strong pace to win her maiden by 10L over a mile here in August. Beaten since having set a steady pace on handicap debut, but should offer more here stepping up in trip.
Handles any ground and latest effort earned a further 6lb rise in the weights. Impossible to dismiss for a stable with a 2-3 record in this race.
Has gone 16 races without a win despite looking increasingly well-handicapped. Best with a decent gallop and no promise of that this time.
By far his best effort this season when fourth in the Spring Mile at Doncaster in March in the mud. Not fired on all cylinders since, but a change of yards could spark a revival.
Well-bred colt landed minor races on a soft surface before going off as favourite for a valuable Ayr handicap. Conditions proved severe and he can do better here off his new mark in lower grade. Rider has a 27% strike rate for the yard this term.
At his best on an easy surface and attractively weighted. Hard to fancy on current form but yard have been in better form lately.
Has C&D winning form, handles the ground and more attractively weighted than when only eighth in this last year.
