Five-time C&D winner who was suited by the drop back to this trip when winning at Wolverhampton. Raised just 2lb and remains on a competitive mark so likely to go close again in a similar affair.
Showed improved form on start number seven when running on off a slow pace over this C&D and when just touched off at Chelmsford. Best forgetting latest run when hampered early and a first win shouldn't be far away.
All three wins have come at shorter but hit the line well over this C&D last time. Down a further 1lb and should be involved again off a competitive mark.
Just the one win from 21 starts but not beaten far on his drop back to 5f last start. Better suited by this distance and is racing to a consistent level that can see him competitive again.
Continues to race inconsistently and on a lengthy losing run despite plummeting in the weights. Needs to improve on recent form and failed to impress on his previous visit here.
Front-runner is on a competitive mark and hadn't been beaten far in previous three starts before a disappointing run at Chelmsford after getting worked up in the stalls. Needs to bounce back in a tougher race.
Veteran with nine career wins including over this C&D. Now 13lb lower than the last of them and not beaten far the last four times, however disappointing he couldn't fair better in a weak contest last time and stable struggling for winners.
Does prefer this surface but just one win from 53 starts tells a story. Remains largely inconsistent and one to oppose.
Slightly better effort on his latest start at Wolverhampton but better suited by the minimum trip and just one win and two thirds from 40 starts.
Remains a maiden after 35 starts and six runs back from a break have been nowhere near good enough to feature here.
Infrequent winner whose latest losing streak dates back to July 2017. Well beaten on last three starts and stable on lengthy losing run. Easy to dismiss.
