Course winner who is now in a visor (first-time) having scored at Nottingham off an attractive mark two starts ago over this trip. That followed a rather up-and-down AW campaign and his form since hasn't made the same impact.
The other course winner in the field who was well backed making his reappearance over 7f here last time after seven months off. Made all in a small field on that occasion (had run of race) he'll need to show more off a 4lb higher mark.
Winner of her first two career races over 6f she's run with credit since in handicaps possibly struggling to justify herself off the marks she's been given. Ran well on the AW last time (1m) but had to give best to two less-exposed sorts.
Below-par on turf for the first time on turf when last seen which begs the question will he be as effective on this surface. Three-time winner on the AW showing himself capable over this trip; maybe best watched for the time being on turf.
Appears suited by a switchback track (always run well and won around Epsom); showed he had returned in decent form when fourth there last time (not well drawn). Never really got involved but dangerous to write off here with conditions to suit.
Good solid placed efforts on his first four starts this year although a visor (instead of cheekpieces) is added to his usual tongue-tie. Handicapper looks to have his measure though (up another 2lb here); another placing may be on the way at best.
Fair maiden who shaped well enough on his seasonal debut/handicap bow at Epsom last time to finish two places behind Majestic Mac. Eased 2lb for that initial handicap effort he still looks as though he needs some further help from the handicapper.
