Drop back in trip to 1m2f probably to blame when she failed to follow-up comfortable Lingfield (1m3f; good to firm) victory. Steps back up to 1m4f, and does need to bounce back off top-weight but is not ruled out.
Tends to go well here and has bettered recent exploits to finish fourth and fifth respectively on his last two starts. Could play somewhat of a part if in similar form, which would entitle him to place claims once more.
Admirable campaigner who hasn't looked like the force of old lately. Hasn't won for over four years and is now 29lb below his last winning mark. Best watched for the time being.
One of the lesser players after a trio of fairly modest runs of late. Should find this a slightly easier assignment than what he has been faced with recently, but too much to prove to recommend him with any confidence.
Placed desperately disappointing Sandown (1m2f; good to firm) run well behind him when surging back to form at Carlisle (1m3f; good to soft) to be denied by just a short-head. Still lightly raced and is a huge player off just 2lb higher.
Running well in the main this year and finished runner-up to the progressive Charles Kingsley over slightly shorter at this track in May. Place claims once again but does have to step up if he is to get fully involved.
Woefully out of form at present and although he has been sliding down the weights, there has been no obvious reason to expect he is about to take advantage of a reduced mark. Hasn't registered a victory since April 2017. Others preferred.
Steps back up in grade into a Class 4, and is probably more of interest from an each-way perspective. Has been in great form since returning from a short-break in April. C&D winner in May and every chance he can feature to an extent.
Produced another solid effort in defeat last week when third at Ayr (1m2f; good to firm). In front of Dark Lochnagar that day and should be able to confirm the form. 3lb below last winning mark and should grab a place once again.
Only managed to finish in midfield in three of his four starts since making seasonal return. Not beaten too far (1m2f; good to firm) at Ayr last week, which offers some encouragement going forward. Competes off the same mark.
Almost bounced back from below-par run two starts ago in emphatic style when runner-up at Salisbury (1m4f; soft) last time. Now makes debut in handicap sphere, and there should be plenty of races to be won with her.
Made a solid start to life in handicaps when third at Lingfield (1m2f; good to firm). Should have plenty more to offer on just her fifth career start, and off 3lb higher this filly is a serious player.
Travelled very well for a long way at Ripon (1m4f; good to firm) on Monday before being beaten in a three-way photo finish. That was still a good run though, and although he is now 0-8, he should go well once again.
