Came in for support here last time but failed to deliver. Could yet have a say over this shorter trip and down a further 2lb in the weights.
Has gone almost 18 months without a win but his handicap mark is attractive enough if a break has done him good.
Nine-race maiden prone to missing the break. Nevertheless he has shown enough to have a fighting chance granted luck in running.
All 11 wins have come in this grade and his best recent form has come off marks in the 63-65 range. Could be a surprise package.
4-16 here and placed on five other occasions. Down to the mark for his last victory here and cannot be discounted.
Improved to score on stable debut and land a gamble. Finished lame that day but remains on a good mark despite a rise in the weights
Goes well at Southwell and has posted a couple of improved efforts at that course since joining her current stable. Refused to race here last time having been very slowly away on her previous start
In good form at the back end of 2017 but largely disappointing since. Debuts for a new yard and probably best watched.
His only two victories in this country have come here in plating class events. Needs a lot to go right in his races and others have to be preferred.
Consistent filly making her Tapeta debut. Effectively partnered by a professional in this apprentice race and she will be thereabouts again.
Has finished last on two most recent starts. Off since August and held on form by Air Of York.
Stepped up considerably last time when well supported. A slow gallop did not help him settle, but this is likely to be run at a more generous gallop.
