Soft ground lover who won at Navan earlier in the campaign in heavy conditions. Disappointed on return last month but capable at this level and not ruled out if he comes on for that run.
Won a Listed race at Navan back in April but hasn't managed to back that up in both handicaps or at pattern level since. Will need a career best to win this.
Group 2 winner who loves testing ground and is in the form of his life in recent starts after an excellent fourth in the Sprint Cup before a placed effort on Champions' Day. May need some rain to be seen at his best but respected down in class.
Group 1 winner in his pomp and still retains a good chunk of ability, as seen with placed runs in Group 3s this year. Not at his best lately but hasn't gone without a win in a calendar year since 2010 and drop in class could see him get competitive.
Has failed to land a blow in Group company but he's capable at this level, as seen at York earlier in the campaign. This is a strong race for the grade but he's not without each-way claims.
Smart two-year-old, gained his first win of 2018 at Doncaster two starts back before a respectable Group 3 second in France behind a smart three-year-old who has followed up since. Versatile with regards ground and jockey rides this course well.
Ran well in a French Group 1 this summer but his form either side of that effort has been poor. Takes a big drop in class but will it's likely he would need rain to arrive if he's to going to win here.
Won twice last year for Robert Cowell but his form for this outfit has been poor and he's hard to fancy against in form rivals up in trip.
Produced a huge run in the Irish 1,000 Guineas where she looked like she had pinched the race from the front before staying on to finish second. Has been running well in defeat of late but her optimum trip is probably a bit further than this.
Listed winner as a juvenile and gained her first win since when dropped in class at Chelmsford earlier in the campaign. Lost her maiden tag over C&D and she's an interesting contender back down at this trip.
Won her first two starts over C&D and has held her form well throughout most of 2018. Finished fourth of 16 in a Listed race at Newmarket last time and while that's a career best effort, she needs more in what has to be considered a deeper contest.
Ended a losing run at Newmarket in August and produced just about a career best at Newmarket last time when placed in Listed class. This looks plenty tougher though and she must improve to play any part.
Placed in a novice event at Redcar last time on her fourth career start but it's hard to see why she's been stepped up to this class on form.
Thrives on soft ground and she was a winner at Goodwood earlier in the campaign on softer ground than advertised but she's been struggling to land a blow at Listed level since and hard to fancy here.
