Ran well to finish runner-up in a C&D handicap last month. Raised 1lb for that effort and of interest in this contest.
Winner of a C&D handicap last week. Disappointing 5L fifth under a penalty at Wolverhampton since and having his third run in a week.
Seven race maiden has shown improved form since returning from a break. Good effort in finishing runner-up over C&D last time out and looks likely to run well once more.
Victorious over 1m at this venue on his penultimate outing. Could finish only mid-division over an extended 1m1f subsequently and is dropping in distance.
Fair eighth over 1m at Kempton when making his debut for this yard three weeks ago. Likely more needed if he's to take this contest.
Nine race maiden put a below par effort behind him when finishing fourth over this trip at Wolverhampton last time out. Worth a check in the market.
Five time winner ran well to finish runner-up over this trip at Kempton last month when returning from a break. Not beaten far over this C&D subsequently.
Decent 1L fourth over 1m here last month when returning from a break. Won just one of 36 lifetime starts however.
22 race maiden finished 8L sixth over this trip at Kempton three weeks ago. More needed if he's to take this event.
15 race maiden was gelded prior to finishing ninth over 1m here last month. Shaped as if a return to this distance would suit.
Well held in two starts since returning from a break including over 1m here last time. Others make more appeal.
18 race maiden returned from a couple of runs hurdling when beaten 11L over 1m here a month ago. Blinkers replace the visor worn for the first time that day.
