Was second over this C&D last August but recent form since switching yards has not been great. He was much better at Ayr last time though when third of 13 and only beaten by 1¾L. One to watch.
Hasn't won since scoring on the AW in May 2016. Has been a long way down the field on his two starts this season on turf, including when 11th of 15 at Haydock (1m2f) last time. Difficult to make a case for.
Was second at Ayr (1m) last month where the winner of that race has since come out and won. Does not win very often but is a consistent horse who is often in the frame. Each-way claims once again here.
Won back-to-back races earlier in 2018 but has not scored since. Was only beaten by 2½L last time at Redcar (1m2f) on second run of season. Capable of much better than this mark so has to be considered.
Was second of 12 when beaten as the 3/1 favourite last time at Haydock (1m) on heavy ground. Will appreciate any rain in the surface. Looking for first win since September 2017. Each-way chance.
A C&D winner here back in July 2017 but since then he has progressively got worse. No sign of any encouragement on opening run of the season at Southwell (1m) back in April. Difficult to see him winning here.
Still a maiden after 10 starts. Ran moderately well on the AW earlier this year but there was very little to like about his opening turf run of the season at Ayr (1m) last time when last of 12. Needs to improve.
Went very close to scoring at this track just 14 days ago when he finished second of 11 over 1m1f, with a just a short-head separating him from the winner. Still bidding for maiden turf success but it won't be far away.
Still looking for opening success following 26 starts. Her latest run was one of the best of her career as she was only beaten by 1¾L at this track over 1m1f when fifth of 11. Cheek pieces on for first time. Others preferred.
This mare's best form came in 2017 but recently she has struggled, including when fourth of 15 in a seller at Redcar (7f) on her latest start. Has been going off a big prices in the betting. Hard to make a case for.
Has finished a long way down the field in all four of her starts since switching yards earlier this year. Did show some promise as a two-year-old but that form seems a long way away now. Would be a surprise if she won.
