Decent effort in finishing 3L sixth over 1m at Lingfield a month ago. Races off a mark 4lb lower than for his most recent victory.
Registered a sixth career success when victorious on good-to-soft ground over this trip at Wetherby earlier this month. Interesting despite a 3lb rise in the weights.
Winner of a 6f novice contest at Lingfield in February last year but struggled in two 7f handicaps since. Cheekpieces tried for the first time stepping up in distance.
Placed third on both starts since winning over this trip at Kempton in March. Races off the same mark as when beaten 3¼L over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton earlier this month.
Victorious over 7f here last November and finished a decent fifth over the same trip at Wolverhampton later that month. Disappointed over this C&D subsequently however.
C&D winner and successful in a 1m handicap at Lingfield back in January. Well held on debut for this yard over the same C&D a month ago and worth a check in the market.
Dual C&D winner last year including by 3½L in September. Struggled in two subsequent starts at this venue and races off a mark 8lb higher than for his most recent victory.
C&D winner caught the eye when encountering trouble in running prior to finishing fourth over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton earlier this month. One to note off a mark 6lb lower than for his most recent success.
Improved on his return from a short break when finishing third over 1m at Kempton last month. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist with a good draw.
Course winner was beaten 1L when finishing runner-up in a 7f handicap at this venue last month. Has won over this trip in the past and market support would be notable on this occasion.
Winner of three of his last four starts inclduing by 2L at L'Ancresse (firm) earlier this month. Has won over C&D in the past and is likely to play a leading role in this contest.
