Previous C&D winner who has been struggling for form this year. Repeat of his effort at Chelmsford two runs back would put him in the picture but ultimately very disappointing at Newcastle last time.
Winner at Newmarket in May off 3lb lower. Got outpaced over shorter here on return to the AW last week and should be much more at home back at this trip.
Lost his way in Group company after beating First Nation in the King George V Stakes at Royal Ascot last year. Form has been a little in-and-out of late but may have just needed the run after a wind op last time. Blinkers on and player.
Winner at Leicester three starts back off 2lb lower. Disappointed next time but ran right up to his best at Newcastle last time and every chance he will be on the premises once again.
On a long losing run at present but only found one too good in the November Handicap at Doncaster. 0/4 on the AW but he's a live player if once again as consistency is a strong point.
Well held in the November handicap at Doncaster but bounced back to form with a good win at Newcastle last time. Hitting the front 2f out and staying on well. Up 5lb so more needed here.
Likeable sort who is 3-12 on the AW. Not been seen since tailed off at Ripon in July where something was clearly amiss. More than capable off this sort of mark if fit and ready.
Not been seen since running with credit in the 2017 November Handicap at Doncaster. On a good mark for his return to action but fitness will need to be taken on trust.
Having shown very little form he bounced back with a good win at Newmarket (1m2f, soft) last month. Nudged up 3lb which is far less of a worry that running good races back-to-back.
Latest win came over this C&D off a 1lb lower mark in the summer. Not so good the last twice but likes it here and should be in the mix once again.
