Has gone well on last two visits here and worth another try at this trip but still a 19-race maiden.
Drops into a Class 6 event for the first time. Handicapper has given him a chance if handling this surface on AW debut.
Beat a course specialist here last season and has only had three races since. Appeared to be coming to hand when fourth in much stronger company in July, but an absence since and the removal of headgear raise doubts.
Has unsuccessfully tried to make all on last two visits here. Now just 1lb above his last winning mark and rider employed with a better than expected 7-31 record for the yard this year.
6f winner here last month but well held off this mark in both runs since. Has bounced back from a bad run previously and may simply be an inconsistent type.
Triple winner whose mark has slipped from a peak of 85. Showed a bit more last time when showing he handles this surface.
Most of his runs of note have come at Redcar. Makes AW debut on the back of an improved effort last time.
Plenty of good performances from similar marks including when chasing home an in-form rival last week. Rider's first mount in public.
Came to hand around this point last year with back to back victories at Wolverhampton. Down to his optimum trip, but due to a drop another couple of pounds next week and that may be the time to catch him.
French 7f winner has shown clear signs of promise lately over trips short of his best. Could be a player off this mark and one to note in the market.
Hamilton maiden winner last year whose form has been mixed since. Record of 0-8 at this track and last two runs are discouraging.
Has had a good summer on turf and now tries to exploit a generous AW mark. Poor AW record but was not at her best on those occasions and better expected this time.
C&D winner last week and still remains below the mark which brought him another track success in late 2017. Every chance under a rider who is good value for his claim.
Much better here last time but that probably an indictment of that race and this will be much tougher, particularly from so far out of the weights.
