Won on debut at Ayr and has largely held his form well subsequently, despite not getting his head back in front. Has shaped like this sort of trip could be okay in the best and yard in form so has to be considered.
Won twice last year but has looked in the handicapper's grip since. Needs to improve for his return at Thirsk last month to have any say here.
A winner of three of his six starts and got his head back in front when last seen at Doncaster on first start since wind surgery. 5lb rise is fair and could easily improve from that; leading player.
Last three wins have come on AW but had some form on turf earlier in his career (including a course success) and fast ground will help in that respect here. Shaped okay at Thirsk last time and each-way claims again.
A winner of five of his 30 starts but disappointed on his sole try at this trip and entitled to need the run on return to action. Wide draw not ideal.
One win from 10 starts but only narrowly denied last time out and the winner from that race has come out and landed a competitive Ripon handicap since. Up 4lb but can go well again.
Has really found some form of late, winning two of his last four starts and runner-up in the other two. Could have more to come from this sort of handicap mark and booking of Moore catches the eye.
Won three times in four starts last year and is starting to get compeitive again after some relief from the assessor in recent outings. Course winner and may improve for the step up in trip so certainly respected here.
Useful stayer but not seen for a sizable amount of time so likely to need the run and best form is over further than this.
Hasn't won in seven Flat starts and while he's been running okay over hurdles of late, this is a tough ask returned to the Flat. Has first start since a wind operation.
Gained a first win since 2017 in a four-runner race at Pontefract last season. Has barely beaten a rival home in two starts this time around and looks largely reliant on a first time wind operation working the oracle.
One win from six starts last year and generally a consistent sort. Worth excusing his run last time at Kempton when probably doing too much too soon and market may be best guide on his return to action in a competitive heat.
Has won three times in 18 starts but yet to score in seven attempts on turf. Operates from a reduced turf mark but has a fair bit to prove on this surface.
Has won 15 races on turf including a C&D success. Well beaten on each start either side of the winter though and opposable in a race this competitive.
Hasn't won on turf since his debut in 2015 at Pontefract. Has got down to a workable handicap mark though and respectable effort when beaten just 2L last time out; not without an each-way squeak.
C&D winner last summer and largely holding his form well in defeat since, though a little below par in two outings this campaign. Looks a little vulnerable from this kind of handicap mark.
Won four times last year on turf but has lost her way of late and tailed off on return to turf last time at Brighton; hard to fancy on that evidence.
