Loves cut in the ground as he showed when returning to form in style at York last month. More to do off 5lb higher, but cannot be ruled out in bid to repeat last year's success in this race.
Lightly-raced and promising colt who has raced only five times, winning on the first two occasions. Still feeling his way in handicap company, but ran well off 5lb lower at Kempton last time and has to be considered stepped up in trip.
Chester winner in September and only 1lb higher. Last two runs have been underwhelming, though, and a return to form is needed.
Successive victories at Haydock and Ayr during the summer, but recent efforts have not been to the same standard. Best efforts have been achieved on a sounder surface,
Poor efforts on last three starts, but finds himself 2lb lower than when scoring at Nottingham in July. This going may be softer than ideal.
Very talented performer in his prime, but is on a downward spiral and is on a long, losing sequence. Current mark very appealing, though, and he can't be ruled out,
In good form during the summer, winning at Thirsk, and showed his well being when third of 16 at York last month. Each-way claims off the same mark.
Ripon winner on a fast surface in July, but subsequent efforts have been ordinary. Falling handicap mark, but others are preferred.
Won three times for John Gosden and first run for current trainer at York was perfectly respectable. Not out of this off 1lb lower.
Scored in good style over hurdles at Carlisle before being turned over at odds-on at that venue on his latest outing. Interesting returned to the Flat off this mark.
Not at his best on recent starts for John Quinn and tries his luck for a new handler who does well with other trainers' cast-offs. Handicapped to go very close if the change of scenery has helped.
