One win and five places from 8 starts at this track but hasn't been in great form so far this term. Has tumbled down the weights though and now 15 lower than at the start of the campaign. Drops in grade too.
Not out of first three in seven starts over the last year and got his head in front here last time over 2m3f, his second win here at that trip. Bids to maintain unbeaten track record and should go close despite drop back in trip..
10-40 and has been a grand servant to connections. Handled conditions best when scoring in heavy ground at Fontwell last time and has been raised 6lb. Twice a winner here in past so should again run his race.
Hasn't won since December 2015 but has plummeted down the weights this year and arguably well handicapped on pick of form. Just hasn't sparkled at all though this term.
Nine-race maiden but appeared improved by wind surgery when third last time at Huntingdon, although appeared reluctant in closing stages. Runs of same mark once again.
17-race maiden but put up best effort for sometime when runner-up latest at Chepstow, not helped by mistakes at each of the final two fences. 2lb higher now but has a chance with a clear round.
13 races without getting his head in front and looks very modest. Connections reach for first-time blinkers in the hope they'll liven him up this time.
Just six races so far under Rules and was made favourite last time only to unseat when in touch 4 out at Chepstow last month. 5lb out of the handicap though and has something to prove.
