Four-time winner for Richard Hughes and latest of three runs for current trainer saw him finish a 1L fourth of nine dropped to this distance at Kempton. Seems to be returning to form and is 1lb lower.
Back to winning ways under this jockey when beating Spirit Of Zebedee over C&D last time and has to shoulder a 6lb penalty. Has to be considered with his stable in fine form.
Knocking on the door before returning to winning ways when last seen at Chelmsford in January. Tougher task off 5lb higher, but cannot be ruled out.
Has not been at his best on recent starts and was last of 12 over C&D on latest outing in January. Plenty to prove despite falling handicap rating.
Course winner on turf last August, but was well held off higher marks in three subsequent runs. Good record of 2-5 on the AW and no surprise to see him go well if sharp enough after his lay-off of 189 days.
Chelmsford winner in October and fourth of 12 over C&D when last in action in January. Quite consistent and should go well, but widest draw is a concern.
Nine-race winner who had only one run for Paul D'Arcy before rejoining current handler for whom he enjoyed several successes. Has not been performing to his former standard and needs to find a spark.
Returning from a long break and wind surgery when encouraging fifth of 12 to Taverner over C&D. Has a 6lb pull for 1¾L beating, which puts him in the mix.
Chased home Tavener over C&D on latest start and has a 6lb pull for a 3/4L defeat. Had Falcao behind on that occasion and will surely be thereabouts again at a track which suits so well.
Beaten quite a long way on two starts over 6f following an absence of over a year. Difficult to fancy against some in-form rivals.
Maiden after 19 races, but was not disgraced when second of 11 at Kempton recently. Overall profile suggests she will do well to trouble the best of this opposition.
Experienced performer who has not been at his best on his most recent outings. Handicap mark is on the slide, but the draw could have been kinder.
