Notched three wins in a row for Roger Varian in spring 2017 but has failed to land a blow for new connections and was most recently last in 1m2f Pontefract handicap. Big leap of improvement is needed.
In relatively good form this season and caused a surprise when landing similar C&D handicap on latest start. 5lb rise and handicapper is taking no chances but is one for the shortlist.
Already a dual winner this season and not disgraced in two starts since over C&D (behind Music Seeker) and in 1m2f Beverley handicap. Down in the handicap and 3lb better off than Music Seeker for this. Commands respect.
Slightly inconsistent but wasn't disgraced when 3l eighth in 1m3f Carlisle handicap last time out. Dropped to 2lb above last winning mark and has solid each-way claims based on his C&D second in May.
Pick of her form has come over 7f and hasn't progressed in last two starts since finishing second at this track in June. Well held sixth in 1m Carlisle handicap and more needed on that form but bred to stay this trip.
Last two runs have come at this track. Strong second over 1m1f on penultimate start before 5l seventh over 1m. Dropped 1lb for that effort and solid claims if replicating his second-place finish.
Has been mainly campaigned over hurdles in the past year and returned to the flat with an 11l seventh in 1m2f Newmarket handicap. Entitled to come on for the run but more needed on that evidence. Others preferred.
Hit-and-miss this season and handicap mark is falling subsequently. Showed some signs of a revival when 5l fourth at this track last time out. Place claims if he's on a good day.
Has ran with some credit in three starts for this stable and ran a fair race when third in 1m Newcastle handicap on latest start. Remains on a fair mark and could go well for a place at a big price.
Made it two in a row and three wins this season with gutsy success gutsy success in 1m2f Haydock handicap a week ago. 5lb higher for that success and on a career high mark but should give a good account for himself.
Consistent without winning this season, including when a close third in 1m2f Pontefract handicap at the start of the month. Has good course form and remains on last winning mark, but all wins have come on soft ground.
Slow break seemed to cost her chances when staying on fourth in 1m2f Doncaster handicap last time. On the same rating for this and will enjoy a strong pace, but this is tougher company than she's contested before.
