Has been successful twice in his last three starts, with both wins coming at Bath over 5½f, including on his latest run where he scored by 2l in a 10 runner field. Gone up 7lb so does need a career best to follow up. Each-way chance.
Ended his long wait without a win at Bath (5½f) last time where he kept on strongly in the closing stages to hold on by a short-head. Gone up 4lb but has won off a mark 1lb higher than this. Leading player.
His sole success came in June 2018 over 7f at Chepstow. Showed some promise on his opening start of this season when second of five at Brighton (7f). Needs to bounce back from last run at Newbury (7f) when 14th of 18. Others preferred.
Experienced gelding who is looking for his first win since switching yards earlier this year. Ran on the AW at Kempton (7f) last time where he could only finish ninth of 14. Now much lower than last winning mark but has to improve.
Won three times at the back end of 2018 but has struggled so far this season. Virtually refused to race last time which meant she finished last of seven at Newbury (6f). Has to bounce back. Others look more appealing.
Still a maiden after eight races but has shown enough promise to suggest that opening win is not far away. Was fifth of 12 last time at Nottingham (1m½f). Has been gelded since then and is taking a step down in trip. Interesting off this mark.
Opened the season with a win at Haydock (1m) but has been unable to follow it up. Went off as the 13/8 favourite at Nottingham (1m2f) last time but was last of five. Down in trip and tongue-tie on for first time. Others preferred.
Lightly-raced filly who won on the AW at Lingfield (6f) to break her maiden earlier this year. Made her turf debut at Ripon (6f) last time out but had to settle for fourth of 14 when going off at 7/2. Cheekpieces on for first time. One to consider.
