Well beaten on all recent starts, including when outpaced here last time and only 10th of 12. Wide draw no help and he has better form on Polytrack.
Has won twice on turf but yet to win in six starts on AW. Makes her Fibresand debut here and can't be ruled out if she takes to this surface, though others make more appeal after her disappointing effort at Chelmsford last time.
Course winner, though only two wins from 18 starts. Looks a shade high in the handicap on return to AW here.
Some promising efforts in 2017 but shown nothing in two starts this year, tailed off at Doncaster last time on handicap debut. Starts out for a new yard now and needs to bounce back; pedigree suggests she may appreciate the switch to this surface.
Still a maiden after 10 starts and not certain to appreciate a switch to Fibresand on AW debut here. Others make more appeal.
Unplaced on each of his five starts and the step up in trip not certain to suit here. Very few signs in his pedigree he wants this test and has significant absence to overcome.
Got her head in front for the first time for this yard last time out when winning at Ayr. Has a wide draw to overcome and often slowly away, something that won't be in her favour at this course; others preferred.
Two-time course winner who hasn't been seen on this surface since 2016. Has been running okay in defeat this year and can't be ruled out if a return to this course sparks some improvement.
Showed little in her first three starts but put up a much better effort when winning at Wolverhampton last time when stepped back up in trip. Yard have a good record here and can't be dismissed.
Still a maiden after eight starts but well beaten last time out at Yarmouth. First-time cheekpieces may see him improve and there's every chance he will act on this surface given his pedigree.
Both her career wins have come over C&D and should appreciate the switch back to AW after some disappointments on turf. Remains above her last winning mark but has place claims nonetheless.
10-time course winner but had lost his way when last seen at the start of the summer. Capable off this sort of mark if the break has freshened him up.
Still a maiden after seven starts and best efforts to date have come on turf, though was running okay when pulled up here in August. May be capable of better at some stage.
