Good second on the AW over this trip at Lingfield on his penultimate start. Failed to built on that back on turf at Brighton (6f, good-to-firm) subsequently and cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are absent for this contest.
Winner on seasonal debut in a 19 runner handicap over 6f at Thirsk (good) in April and finished a decent third over C&D on good-to-firm ground subsequently. One to note back down in trip having finished held over 7f last time out.
Held in three starts in novice company including over 7f on soft ground at Haydock early last month. Gelded since and market support would be notable for a top yard on handicap debut.
Ran well to finish a close 1½L fourth in a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton earlier this month. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and step up in trip shouldn't inconvenience too much.
Placed on the AW last year but struggled in three starts since including when eight over 7f at Leicester (soft) on seasonal debut last month.
Ten race maiden placed in claiming company over 7f on the AW at Lingfield in January. Well held on stable debut at Leicester (6f, good) last time out.
19 race maiden finished sixth in a selling contest at Catterick (good-to-firm) earlier this month. Others hold stronger claims in this event.
Built on a run of second place finishes winning by a neck over this trip at Hamilton (good) last time out. Raised 2lb for that victory and cheekpeices worn for the first time that day are retained.
Improved on stable debut when finishing eighth in a 1m handicap at Carlisle (good-to-soft) last month. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Some decent efforts in defeat this campaign including when fifth over C&D on good ground early last month. Interesting contender following a 2lb drop in the weights.
Ran well to finish fourth over 5f at Chelmsford in May. Disappointing twice subsequently however and others appear to hold stronger claims.
17 runner maiden has finished well held in two outings over around 1m so far this season. Others make more appeal down in trip.
13 race maiden returned from a break with a 2¾L ninth over 5f at Redcar (good) last month. Shapes as if a return to this distance will suit.
Dual AW winner most recently in a match over this trip at Lingfield in March. Out of form since however and races off a mark 2lb lower than for that victory as a result. Blinkers tried for the first time.
