C&D winner back below his last winning mark but has been below his best on recent starts, including here last month; needs to bounce back.
Has five wins at this trip and finds himself below his last winning handicap mark. Likely to bounce back at some point and he's back below his last winning mark.
In excellent form towards the back end of last season, winning two of his last four starts. Handicap mark looks fair and may have more to come this season but market perhaps best guide to whether he will be ready to go on return.
Only has one win to his name which came on debut for this yard. Good second at Beverley last time though when runner-up of 15 and back below his last winning mark. Useful apprentice claims 5lb.
Losing run goes all the way back to a Group 3 success back in 2016 and has been struggling in three starts this season. Slow to break at Beverley last time and hard to fancy at present.
Made it six wins from 32 turf starts at Thirsk last time out and has won from higher marks than this. Apprentice jockey is well worth the 3lb he claims in this event and he tends to remain in form once he has a win under his belt.
Only has one win since 2015 and shown nothing in two starts this year, badly outpaced at Pontefract earlier this month. Old in the tooth now and badly needs to bounce back.
Has two wins from 14 starts on turf but well below his best in recent starts, failing to beat a rival home on each of his last six outings; very tough ask on that evidence.
Just has won win since 2016 and still above his last winning handicap mark. Ran okay at Newcastle last time but looks in need of some relief from the assessor.
Has nine wins on AW, adding to his tally last time out but still yet to win in 24 turf starts and looks vulnerable here.
Has five wins on AW but has just one win from 29 starts on turf. While he's been in good form at Southwell of late, he still has a fair amount to prove on this surface.
A maiden after 62 starts and near impossible to fancy in this event from out of the handicap.
