Has edged up the weights after a reasonably solid spell of form since returning to turf in April; 6lb higher than when holding on determinedly to beat Shawaamekh by ¾L at Wetherby (good to soft) in early May.
C&D winner (good to soft) for Lar Mullaney from a 10lb higher mark last July; has struggled to put his best foot forward since hence the ease in the weights; visor now applied seeking to spark a revival of fortunes; stablemate of Captain Peaky.
Doesn't win all that often and following a couple of fair placed efforts on the AW during April, now looks to be back on another downward spiral; 1-26 on turf; admittedly has raced mainly on the AW in recent years.
12-race maiden; was partnered by Toby Eley when beaten 1¼L by Camille on soft ground at Nottingham (1m) before another placed finish on the AW at Wolverhampton; 1lb lower in a weak race.
Game filly who will handle these conditions (is a 6f winner on soft); in the midst of a productive spell of form on the Fibresand at Southwell (1,1,2); same mark as when beaten 3¼L by the Mick Appleby-trained Khaan latest.
26-race maiden and stablemate of Lagenda; 25/1 runner up at Chelmsford (1m) in March, and also beaten by a nose on soft ground at Hamilton (1m1f) last June; opposed as he clearly isn't one to set the clock by (inconsistent).
Ten-race maiden who has regularly toiled at big prices; there's no obvious reason to envisage a scenario where he passes the jam-stick ahead of the others; easily ignored.
