C&D winner finished a good second over C&D in a similar race to this on his penultimate start and return to selling company should suit having finished fourth in a handicap at Carlisle (6f, good-to-firm) earlier this month.
Returning from a break when finishing well beaten in a big field 5f handicap at York (good-to-firm) last time out. Notable runner dropping markedly in grade.
Victorious on the AW over 7f at Wolverhampton last November. Disappointed on seasonal debut at Ayr (1m, good-to-firm) in May however and is dropping back in distance.
Struggled in handicap company over 7f at Epsom (good-to-firm) last week. More needed on these terms dropping back in distance.
Ran well to finish 2L fifth in a similar race to this over C&D at the start of this month. Notable runner with a useful apprentice in the saddle.
Finished eighth in a 7f handicap at Haydock (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Dropping in grade here but all three previous victories have come over the minimum distance.
Dual winner ran well in finish time cheekpieces (retained) when fifth over 7f on good-to-firm ground here last time out. Worth a check in the market dropping in trip.
Eight race maiden finished well beaten in a 7f claimer at Redcar (good-to-soft) on seasonal debut last month. Others make more appeal.
Winner of a mark of 92 on soft ground at Doncaster (6f) in March last year. Struggled since however but a leading player if capable of reproducing that form.
Maiden after nine starts and shown little in two starts since joining this stable from Ireland. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Sole victory from 24 starts came on soft ground over 5f at Nottingham in July 2016. Struggled in three starts this campaign and others hold stronger claims.
