Both wins have come on AW and he's failed to back up a promising effort at Bath in two subsequent starts. Drops in trip and others preferred.
Both turf wins have come at Ascot and he's still above his last winning handicap mark. Has run some respectable races in defeat of late but others likely to be better handicapped in a race of this nature, particularly if more rain arrives.
Won each of his first three starts before a creditable sixth in this race last year. Returned with a promising effort at York in May and while he disappointed at that venue last time, he's the type to bounce straight back.
All wins have come on AW, including yard debut at Chelmsford in June. Must prove he can be as effective on turf before he becomes of interest.
Really struggling for any sort of form of late, tailed off on each of his last four starts and hard to make a case for without a turf win to his name.
Listed winner as a juvenile and C&D winner earlier in the campaign. Wasn't beaten far at Newmarket two runs back and a return to this trip and track could spark a revival.
Got his head back in front at Leicester last time out. At his very best on fast ground so recent rain is against him but looks unexposed at this sort of trip and not ruled out despite a 5lb rise in the weights.
A 7f specialist who has been a bit below his best so far this year. Won a valuable handicap at Leopardstown from a higher handicap mark last season though and his run at Newmarket last time out wasn't devoid of promise. Each-way claims.
Losing run stretches back to an AW success in 2017 but shaped well at Chelmsford prior to being disqualified at Ascot last time when first past the post. 3lb rise for that but not ruled out.
Has won twice this season but seems to have gone off the boil in recent starts. Above his last winning handicap mark and probably better at 1m.
Showed promise in three starts in novice company and improved on handicap debut to win a 7f contest by 3L last time out. An 11lb rise for that demands more but less exposed than several in here.
Won on his return at Kempton and landed his first turf success when winning over C&D earlier in the campaign. May struggle to reverse the form when second at Newmarket last time behind reopposing rival Light And Dark.
Failed to build on her novice win at Lingfield last year and still looked in need of more relief from the handicapper when well beaten over C&D last time out.
Off the mark at the sixth attempt on handicap debut at Leicester last time out in first time headgear (retained here). Won with a bit in hand that day and unexposed back down in trip. Respected with Dettori booked.
Struggling for any sort of form of late, failing to beat a rival home at Ripon last time out. Becoming feasibly handicapped but hardly one to rely on at present.
Gained second career win (2-9 on turf) at Epsom last time over 7f on good-ground. Up 4lb here and far from certain to get own way in front again.
Excellent effort when runner-up in a Listed race at Chelmsford earlier in the campaign but hasn't built on that run and at her best when allowed to dominate, something highly unlikely from this stall.
Largely in good form throughout this season and fairly handicapped on best form but he's got work on to reverse the form with two rivals in here when third at Newmarket last time.
