Snapped a 21 month losing run when landing a Thirsk seller and stepped up on that when runner-up at Hamilton. Feasibly treated providing conditions stay dry.
Recorded a slow speed figure when scoring in deep ground at Nottingham and he has been found out in both starts since. Has won on most ground types but requires a career best to win this.
Lightly raced individual was tailed off on handicap debut two weeks ago. Possibly unsuited by AW surface, but nevertheless hard to rate his chances as better than speculative.
Six-time winner, with two coming on turf and on a fair mark at present. However needs to raise his game from three starts this year and prefers a faster surface.
Seven-race maiden for Ger Lyons in Ireland. Disappointed on last three runs and the market clearly anticipated better last time.
Surprise winner of a Naas claimer last year and has barely beaten a rival since. Hard to recommend at present.
Has not scored since his juvenile days and form has an inconsistent look to it. Career low mark and prospect of rain give cause for optimism so keep one eye on the weather and another on the market.
19-race maiden who ran some good races in defeat last season. Showed further promise on return but poor on AW since and there may be better options available.
Third in this two years ago and arrives on the back of a good run at Hamilton. Up 3lb for that and his best work has come off marks below 50. Forecast of rain a further worry.
Has finished in the ruck on all starts including last week's handicap debut. Remains a work in progress and a long way off the finished article.
