Winner over this trip at Kempton two starts back but well below that form at Wolverhampton last time out. Had a short break since then, which may help, but others make more appeal.
Looked a refreshed horse when scoring at Wolverhampton last time out, making all and scoring with a bit in hand. Tricky draw to overcome but there's not much pace on, and he could easily repeat the dose from 4lb higher today.
Went close over C&D in March and is a couple of pounds lower here, but has thrown in two lesser efforts since then, and an overall record of 1-23 makes her look less appealing too.
Looked to be going nowhere fast until putting in a much better effort at Musselburgh last time, finishing second over 5f. Different conditions (and trip) to cope with here, but chances if building on that.
Well handicapped on the best of his form and looks to be on the way back to form after a couple of good efforts at Wolverhampton lately. Ground to make up on Olaudah but chances of reversing it at today's weights, and not out of it.
Hard to win with at the best of times, as a record of just one win in 38 starts demonstrates, and was a disappointing favourite again at Brighton when last seen. Easy enough to pass over.
Old boy pops up now and again, usually when his yard hits a bit of form, but tends to be beatable more times than not and on that alone, others make more appeal.
Still a maiden after 12 starts and is clearly moderate, not seen out since last October so may need this outing regardless, and makes only minimal appeal.
Only the one win in 35 starts, poorly drawn and showed little on first start for new yard at Brighton at the beginning of the month. Makes next to no appeal at present.
Going nowhere quickly at the moment, last of 10 at Newcastle last time and yet to be placed in ten starts. Tongue tie given a try today but it needs to have a major effect.
