Improving maiden, decent fourth of 18 in handicap at Newbury (7f, good; 9-2) 15 days ago and should be able to put himself in the mix if taking to this surface.
Best of three qualifying efforts came last time at Chepstow over similar trip (third), though likely has further improvement to find now tackling a handicap.
Made the frame in soft-ground Newbury contest over a mile last time out, diverts attention to handicaps now and booking of Oisin Murphy looks a positive. Market check demanded.
Fair third at Nottingham on handicap debut over similar trip recently, staying on well without threatening front pair. Makes polytrack debut and has decent claims on form.
Had started to show promise this term prior to fast-fading effort at Newmarket (1m, good) 18 days ago, now requires a bounce-back effort.
Declaration Of War filly, ran well here on debut and scored next time in 7f Chelmsford novice contest. Likely didn't stay at Bath on turf debut in May and could be worth a look now making handicap debut back down in trip.
More exposed than a few of these rivals and lacking some consistency. Below par at Sandown (1m2f, soft; 10-1) most recently and needs to bounce back down in trip here.
Penultimate run at Leicester over a mile was eye-catching, given he pulled hard and stayed on for a good third. Hasn't built on that effort back there since however, must improve.
Disappointing effort at Goodwood (1m2f, soft) last month came from a career-low handicap mark. Hard to place much faith in on recent form.
