C&D winner but generally well held over the summer and in a couple of spins around here since September. Looks there to be shot at from top weight.
Running well in defeat over C&D recently and would not have to improve much on those displays to play a role here.
Not beaten far on AW debut over C&D last week. Not won for over two years and unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Well beaten and no impression in a number of desolate efforts over the season. Even his best form would possibly leave him short of what is required in this contest.
Has not looked like adding to his win in a 1m Southwell handicap in March off a 2lb lower mark, with a series of disappointing displays since. Others preferred.
Struggled off her new mark since landing a Gowran Park contest over this trip in May off a 4lb lower mark. Ran well here over C&D in May finishing 2½L adrift of Boxer Dunford off a similar mark. Tough ask from outside draw.
C&D winner here over 12-months ago off a 10lb higher mark. Clearly needs assistance from the handicapper and this looks a tall order given draw.
Raised 1lb for a gallant second of 14 to Three Majors over C&D seven days ago. Drawn nine but capable of another bold show.
11-race maiden and well beaten on a couple of occasions here. Others look to be progressing at a quicker rate.
Basement mark gelding when landing a Naas 1m handicap in July. Rated 52 round here last winter and place claims if recapturing that form.
Nothing of note in a number of generally below par performances over the summer. Well adrift of a couple of these over C&D earlier this month. Vast improvement needed to figure.
Has produced a couple of promising efforts of late with a fourth of 14 beaten 2L over C&D earlier in the month and first time blinkers puts the daughter of Casamento in the mix here.
Unplaced on each of his nine starts including on three occasions here. Plenty more needed in this group.
