Needs to prove himself after a below par effort last time but had previously been in good form and has coped with higher marks in the past. Dangerous to overlook despite the burden of sharing top weight.
Drops back in trip after a poor run over 1m at Chelmsford last month; place claims on the pick of his form but the return to the tapeta surface will suit.
Returned in good heart this year and has held her form well. Set to race from just 1lb above her winning mark on turf; big chance if the seventh furlong doesn't prove to be too much of an issue.
Won well at Lingfield on his penultimate start but found a mile beyond him at Kempton last time. Makes his debut on this surface but will appreciate dropping back in trip. Worth considering for a place at least.
Races from a 4lb higher mark than for his C&D win last November; raced only once since though and has a bit to prove after disappointing when last seen.
Gained his solitary win to date over this trip as a juvenile but been expensive to follow since. Never won on the AW and has been struggling to make much of an impact. Encouraging signs last time but needs to prove that wasn't a one-off performance.
Has won over C&D but been out of form for a while and it's over two years since his last win; can be slowly away and the wide draw isn't ideal either.
Goes well here but form has taken a nosedive; possible he needed the run last time but still has a good bit to prove on balance.
Comes back here in good heart and not much to find to get competitive in this company. Has won over C&D before but has form to reverse with Waqt this time.
Finished a close second over C&D latest and could easily make the frame again of she's on song; has already enjoyed a profitable time since the turn of the year and no surprise to the the mare in the thick of the action once more.
More effective on the AW than on turf, the gelding won over C&D from a 13lb higher mark last summer but has been inconsistent since. Visored for the first time and plenty to prove despite the lenient rating.
