Boasts seven wins on the AW and a highly consistent record. Close sixth in a Listed race latest but likes to front run and wide draw to overcome.
Listed winner over this C&D back in February and not far behind Corinthia Knight latest. Drawn better here and should get the race run to suit. Leading hope.
Struggled of late in turf contests but well handicapped back on an AW surface. Could bounce back from good draw.
Left France in good form with back-to-back wins in the summer and subsequently highly-tried in the Abbaye. Doesn't look particularly well handicapped though on British and stable debut.
Hasn't won since taking a valuable York handicap last year but back on a good mark now and heads here off a good second. Struggled in both previous AW starts that leaves enough doubt.
Goes well here and an impressive seven from 21 on an AW surface. Followed back-to-back wins with a solid third latest but likes to lead and may be tough to get across from wide draw.
Good record on the AW and up 4lb for latest success from the front at Kempton. Faces plenty of competition for the lead and others better handicapped but bold effort likely.
Prolific winner whose latest C&D win added to a highly profitable year. Likely to go well again but 6lb rise and higher grade does demand more.
Front-runner returns from a break on quite a high mark. Faces lots of early challenges for the lead and tends to be more dangerous with a run behind him.
