Already won twice this season and carries a 5lb penalty here for latest 6L win on firm ground at Bath. Will have no problem with that and looks sure to make another bold bid in current form.
Reeled off an AW hat-trick coming into this and although he's 0-11 on turf he races off a mark 7lb lower than he would on AW and he has placed five times on turf. Suspect he will be winning on turf sooner rather than later now.
Got her head in front in a six-runner race at Epsom last season and with a good record when fresh she was made favourite on return at Doncaster but was almost tailed off last of seven. That run obviously a concern.
Hacked up at Leicester last season and followed up at Newcastle. Showed handicap mark still within range first time out when second back at Leicester but flopped badly on AW next at Chelmsford. Better form on turf so willing to forgive that.
Won three times last season (1-17 before) and showed aptitude for big handicaps here when third in the 7f Victoria Cup. Well held in big field 1m handicap at Ascot latest but 7f suits better. Handicapper may still have his measure.
Stepped into the unknown when upped to this trip latest at Southwell and absolutely bolted up by 4½L. Could be open to more improvement over the trip back on turf and 7lb rise doesn't temper enthusiasm.
In good form on AW throughout the winter winning at Newcastle and remaining consistent and competitive since. Not as compelling now back on turf and handicapper probably has his measure.
Another starting out for a new yard but is still 1lb above her last winning mark and has a long absence to overcome. Record when fresh isn't so great these days.
