Likes this course but has a bit to prove after a moderate effort at Catterick last week. Stiff test under top weight.
Yard always respected in races of this nature and the betting can be informative about any stable confidence. Held twice since winning at Carlisle in August but not ruled out at this level.
Best on the AW and has to be a concern that he's 0-18 on turf. The trip and ground are also negative factors against his claims. Others preferred.
Mixed fortunes of late but is on a winning mark and enjoyed a confidence-boosting spin at Nottingham last week. Ran on well near the finish on that occasion, so can be expected to be played late. One to bear in mind.
Suited by the trip and drying ground would be in his favour. Possible a stiffer track would be more beneficial though.
Won a maiden handicap at Pontefract in July but not seen out in public since being pulled up at the same course in his next start just over a week later. Second in a division of this race last year, so still worth a betting check.
Best form has been posted over shorter distances (has a 6f course win to his name but yet to impress over this sort of trip). The betting can guide again here.
Has ability but still to get off the mark on turf (0-8 so far). Dropped to a handy mark but her latest effort was over 1m4f (on the Tapeta at Wolverhampton) and she has something to prove dropping back in distance.
Unexposed on turf but has been well held twice since finishing third at Thirsk in April. Doesn't look particularly well handicapped at present either (2lb above his winning mark on the AW). His rider has won this race twice in the last four years.
Just one win from 26 starts under both codes and is currently on a long losing run. Has experience of the course but others make more appeal over this sort of trip.
Posted a sound effort in an amateur riders race at Beverley last month and gets on well with today's rider. Trip and ground not expected to be problematic; one to consider here.
Won a brace on the AW early this year but has looked as if the handicapper has his measure in all subsequent starts. Has now been cut some slack and positive that his rider won a division of the 2017 renewal. The betting will again be informative.
Good effort to finish second in a C&D seller a fortnight ago but has become unpredictable and looks a risky option when the bigger picture comes into focus. The cheekpieces might help but a lot of guesswork is involved in trying to fathom him out.
Not enjoyed any success since winning in selling grade at Ripon in May. Finished just over 6l adrift of I'm Yer Man here last time out and may struggle to reverse even that poor piece of form.
Raced just four times up until now and feasible he's better days are ahead of him. Has been off since July but does have experience of racing over this trip and a big run cannot be discounted if handles the ground. Place claims.
