Landed four handicaps for Richard Hannon over previous two seasons and returns from winter break making debut for new connections having been bought recently for 14,000 guineas. 3lb higher than last win so may find this tough after his absence.
Both career wins have come at 6f but was fine runner-up at this trip to subsequent 1000 Guineas winner Billesdon Brook as a juvenile. Champion jockey on board having run well when fourth on seasonal return at Kempton.
Still unexposed Dark Angel colt who stayed on well to score last time over 1m at Kempton. Raised 3lb but this promnent racer should still make a bold bid dropping back in trip.
Won h'cap over this trip off 2lb lower mark on penultimate start but a little below-par last time. Return to form not ruled out and young rider takes off a handy 7lb.
Has won third of his last four, two over C&D and is clearly in fine form at present. Stayed on well to score at Kempton last time and winning run may not be ended by subsequent 4lb rise.
Faced some stiff tasks last term after winning at Newmarket in May for Chris Wall and hasn't shown a great deal in two outings to date for his new yard. 6lb lower than last win and good apprentice claims further 3lb, but more needed.
Chester specialist who finished last on seasonal return at Doncaster last month and needs a much improved display if he's going to figure this time. 6lb lower now and has first start at this venue.
In good form last spring, winning at Yarmouth on seasonal return and has first start this campaign back on same mark. Worth a market check for any sign of stable confidence.
On a 20-race losing streak and despite 5lb fall in his AW weather mark hasn't been showing enough of late to suggest he is an ovious winner-in-waiting.
10-time winner with six of those wins coming at this track. Still 2lb higher than last win in February but not out of it as appeared not to thrive on Southwell Fibresand last two outings.
