Ended long losing streak when scoring tidily in similar event at Leicester three weeks ago. More to do at the weights but one to consider. Yet to race on a really soft surface.
Smart performer when with Richard Hannon two years ago but has been on a downward spiral since joining current trainer. Step up in trip will suit. Market should be the best guide.
Lightly-raced; has shown slight promise on a couple of occasions but finished a remote last on latest start at Haydock on soft ground. Hard to see him getting competitive unless first-time blinkers do the trick.
Landed a gamble when scoring at Brighton in April following a long abscence from the track. Not beaten far (finished well) at Lingfield last time out. Could still be progressing. One to consider.
Improved effort at Yarmouth last time out over 1m2f but struggled over two furlongs further the time before qat Wolverhampton.. Still lightly raced and open to improvement. Definite chance.
Took a long time to settle in his first race for two years last time at Sandown (1m2f) last month but still put in a nice performance considering. Acts on soft ground. Any market moved would be interesting.
At his best two years ago over this trip winning races at Newcastle and Brighton. Has been on a downward curve ever since and little to like about his reappearance run at Haydock earlier this month.
Reliable and consistent gelding who put up one of his better performances last time out at his favoured course Brighton over 1m2f. Stays this trip and handles a bit of cut. Obviously in good heart at the moment and one for the shortlist.
Busy but inconsistent gelding. Last two runs have been below par and only hope here is recent break has done him good. Stays this trip well and acts on an easy surface.
Nearly back on last winning handicap mark. That win came at Brighton over 1m2f. Not disgraced when tried over this trip for the only time. Yet to race on the predicted soft surface - holds good place chances if she does.
Enterprisingly ridden and a game, all-the-way winner of a Yarmouth handicap five days ago. A reproduction of that form would see him go close but more to do under his penalty.
Consistent of late at Lingfield and Yarmouth (twice). Turned out quickly after finishing behind Kaylen's Mischief last week. Should appreciate step up in trip and holds every chance.
Chaser/hurdler whose last two runs on the flat have been very disappointing. Best left out of calculations unless market speaks in his favour.
