Unlucky not to have won a race so far this season and has produced a couple of creditable runs in competitive handicaps on his last two starts. Finished runner-up in this race last year form 1lb lower and gets his optimum conditions here; contender.
Hasn't won since debut but bounced back from some below par efforts with a third in a Listed race at Redcar last time. Performed well here in the sales race last year but probably needs a bit more to defy this mark back in a handicap.
Looked like an exciting prospect for 2018 after winning four times as a three-year-old but disappointed in the Lincoln and hasn't been able to win a race. Needs plenty of rain if he's to be of interest here.
In good form at the start of the campaign but failed to build on that towards the back end of the summer. Capable off this mark but he needs plenty of rain to be seen at his best and he's never won over a trip this short.
Soft ground winner at Haydock over this trip and has shaped like he wants a step back up in trip after two runs over 6f subsequently. Only 3lb above his last winning mark and capable of running well.
Won at Musselburgh earlier in the campaign but he's been inconsistent since and there's been very little encouragement in his last couple of starts. Needs first-time cheekpieces to spark a return to form.
Won at the start of the 2017 season but has endured a long losing run since. Had been running well in defeat prior to a below par effort last time and may find a few too good again.
Won on heavy ground at Salisbury towards the end of last year but hasn't won since and has been nudged further up the handicap after placed effort on his last two starts; hard to fancy in a race more competitive here.
Has only won one of his 17 starts since his maiden success and all his best form is on faster ground than what he's going to get here. Well beaten on his last couple of starts and others preferred.
Won a novice event at Wetherby at the start of the campaign but has struggled from a harsh handicap mark since. Dropped 3lb for his latest effort but others preferred.
Won twice on AW at Southwell and has run well in defeat on each of his three turf starts. Less exposed than his rivals and the step back up in trip looks in his favour.
