Well beaten in two starts since returning from a break including over this trip at Ascot (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Dropping markedly in grade here and is one to note in this contest.
Failed to beat a rival home in two starts on turf this spring. Had just two starts on the AW and is an interesting contender down in grade.
Ran well to finish 1L second in a 5f handicap at Chelmsford last time out. Has won over this C&D in the past and is a notable runner on this occasion.
Completed a double when winning over 6f here last month. Good second over an extended 5f at Wetherby (good) last time out and interesting to see how he fares.
Struggled in two starts in handicap company over 5f at Chelmsford this years. Returning from a break here and he is worth a check in the market.
Struggled in two turf starts since finishing fourth over this trip at Lingfield in March. Bit to find with a few of his rivals on these terms.
Victorious in a 5f novice event at Ripon (good) in May last year. Beaten 12L over C&D in first time cheekpieces (retained) last month on stable debut and only subsequent start.
Absent since registering a victory over this trip at Kempton in October 2017. C&D winner but probably best watched on her first start in over 18 months.
Winner over this trip on debut in May last year and came within a nose of registering a second career success at Beverley (5f, good-to-soft) last time out. Looks up against it on these terms however.
Five race maiden was beaten 11L at Thirsk (7f, good) earlier this month. Cheekpieces tried for the first time but looks up against it dropping in distance.
