Versatile trip wise and continued good run when chasing home a subsequent winner at Pontefract last time. Yet to win on turf on the Flat but that was probably a career best in this sphere and one for the short list.
Two wins at Brighton this season including at this trip and possibly did too much in a race where the winner was held up last time. Career high mark but remains in good heart.
Claims on his comeback third at Redcar in April but hasn't matched that since and didn't fire at Chester on Saturday. Bit to prove at present.
Sole career win was over C&D last year and shaped well when third here on latest. Any softening in the ground would help her cause and still relatively unexposed on turf.
Didn't show much in trio of maidens but was well backed on handicap debut at Sandown recently when chasing a very fast pace and ultimately finishing sixth of 13. Interesting to see if the money comes for him again
Put some below par efforts behind her when second at Doncaster last time though that race was set up for those who were held up so she was seen to best advantage.
Rattled off a rapid hat-trick in April under today's regular rider but not quite in the same form since and neck second last time was in Jersey.
Third last August off a mark of 68 but has really struggled since and although 18lb lower mark here, has plenty to prove at present.
Runner up twice on the AW this year but sole win was gained in 2015 and needs to find more to double his tally here.
Lightly raced these days but has finished last on three of her last four starts and the only plus point is the decent run her small stable is currently enjoying.
34 race maiden who has twice finished runner up at Chelmsford in past 12 months but a long time since she showed worthwhile form on turf.
Still relatively low mileage and while last two runs were disappointing, showed enough prior to that to be of some interest here under promising rider. Could go well at a price.
Yet to reach the frame and hasn't threatened to so on six runs this term. Not hard to look elsewhere from 7lb out of the weights.
