On a hat-trick after winsning a 1m2f handicap at Chelmsford and a 1m4f claimer at Catterick. Clearly in good heart and should make a bold bid again but is slightly worse off at weights than he would be in a handicap.
First ever runner at the track for fine dual purpose handler. Been struggling off high marks in handicaps of late and beaten 10 lengths when second in Wolverhampton claimer last time. Big chance of able to recapture old form on these terms though.
Been a fine servant to connections winning 10-55. Faced stiff task in Chester Cup penultimate start and disappointing in Catterick claimer last time. Struggling to find his form it seems but has big chance if able to roll back the years.
Second in Haydock 1m6f handicap earlier this term but balance of form suggests he has plenty to find with his four rivals and will find this a very tough task.
In good form with recent wins in 1m2f sellers and may have more to offer trying this new trip for the first time. Faces much tougher opposition but is very much respected for yard in great nick this season.
