Only win remains a Thirsk novice race and not really threatened in handicaps so far although it remains relatively early days and her mark is sliding all the while.
Irish C&D winner in May ran excellently well when second in a big field contest at Naas latest and both of these two pieces of form suggest him a leading contender once more.
Lingfield second on handicap debut promising but failed to build on that with two lasts since including latest seasonal/stable debut; others preferred.
Has recorded just the one win in 27 starts in her career but finished second for the fifth time over C&D earlier this month beaten in a photo. Sure to go close again and apart from her strike-rate there are few negatives.
Losing run stretches back to February 2017 and although his handicap is now in free fall recent efforts suggest that he is unlikely to take advantage.
Second at Hamilton and twice at Carlisle coming into this and off the same mark as latest he should be in the thick of things once again here.
Not as consistent as he once was but fourth over 5f just last week one of several solid efforts in 2019 and no reason he can't again be competitive here.
Dropped back to sprinting with back-to-back Carlisle wins of late twice over 6f. Not sure she's done enough to deserve an 8lb hike but is unexposed over this trip.
Promise in fourth in final qualifier but tailed off last on handicap bow so best watched for now.
Ripon winner two starts ago well beaten next at Hamilton but revels in soft ground so any further rainfall could bring him right into this.
Threatened on a number of occasions although winless in 2019. Another fourth at Hamilton last time out continues his solid form and sure his day will soon come.
Just the one positive effort in six 2019 races so is a risky proposition on the whole at present.
Now one from 27 and unplaced in all 2019 starts. Others much more compelling on the whole here then.
AW Newcastle winner earlier this season but no impression since on turf and held by rivals on a couple of recent runs here.
On a long losing stretch which goes back to October 2017 when she last scored on the AW at Wolverhampton (6f). Midfield here latest continuing a fair if uninspired run of form.
Looking for her first win since 2016 and based on her 13th of 16 latest the wait looks likely to go on.
Handicap debutant beaten one rival in each of his three starts to date. Handicaps will hopefully help but hope is all we can have at present.
