Two-time course winner (1m4½) who probably paid the price for sitting too close to a fast pace here last time out. Dropped 2lb, stays this trip well and could quite possibly come on for the run; therefore not one to underestimate here.
Benefited from being held up off a strong pace here last time out when he had some of these in behind but 4lb higher this time around and yard are quiet at present. Step up in trip is in his favour at least.
Two-time course winner who is still below his last winning AW mark and shaped well behind Loud And Clear last time out, probably doing too much too soon. Could very well reverse the form with a swing in the weights here.
Only narrowly denied at Hamilton when last seen in July but entitled to need the run on return and his AW record is patchy. First run for new yard.
Well beaten behind three of these last time out and he's looked more at home on turf than AW. Needs a decent pace to aim at.
Yet to win in nine AW starts and entitled to need the run here on his first start since wind surgery. Disappointed over hurdles when last seen but did run okay in 2017's renewal of this race, beaten just 3L.
