Camacho gelding; produced a clear career best effort on second start when finishing 5L sixth of 12 to Insania at Thirsk (5f, good); doesn't appeal other than on the basis of that single piece of form.
Toronado filly; made the frame at odds of 40-1 on her second start (5f, Thirsk); encountered soft ground over C&D here 23-days ago; should make her presence felt against these opponents.
Elzaam filly; has shown precious little in the way of promise to date (5f-6f); tongue-tie applied for the drop into a claimer.
Holy Roman Emperor gelding; hasn't beaten a single rival on his last two starts (Goodwood and Windsor), although this is undoubtedly a much less taxing assignment; wears a newly applied visor.
Night Of Thunder filly; patently didn't get home over 6f on good to soft ground at Leicester last month, albeit she turned in a reasonable performance (showed pace); has a definite shout back over 5f at this much sharper track.
Sizeable odds when well beaten on both previous starts, including in the valuable Rous Selling Stakes at York (6f); very unlikely to be the solution.
Showed no signs of improvement (raced keenly early) for being gelded when finishing sixth of seven to Better The Devil in a 5f Hamilton maiden (good) last month.
25-1 when finishing last of nine on debut in a Carlisle novice (5f, good to soft); swiftly shunted into a claimer so the chances are that there will be precious little improvement to come.
