Made it two in a row and three wins this season with gutsy success gutsy success in 1¼m Haydock handicap on his penultimate start, and best forgiven a lesser effort at York last time when not seen to best effect. One to consider.
Won a claimer last year but last handicap win came in August 2017. Proved his stamina for this trip when third at Beverley last time, and not ruled out, but others a little more compelling.
Useful sort for Saeed bin Suroor in 2017, but retains little of his old ability judged on three runs for his current yard this year.
Ran well to make the frame in 1m handicaps here and at Ripon after a long absence, and possible to blame soft ground for latest flop at Pontefract over this trip. Ought to stay on pedigree, and worth another chance.
Best effort this year when third over 1m3f at Hamilton last time, and well treated if using that as a springboard, with two handicap wins last year coming off higher marks. Market should prove a useful guide.
Bit better than this year's form figures suggest, slipping badly last time, but he's only won once from 23 starts all told, and easy enough to swerve for win purposes despite his sliding mark.
Standout effort when third on good ground at Pontefract (1m) on penultimate start, and of some interest on that run, but failed to repeat it upped to this trip there last time, and easy to have reservations, for all she's not fully exposed.
Runner-up from a 3lb higher mark over C&D in May, and has obvious claims on that run, but he has gone the wrong way since, finishing last on two of his last three starts.
Yard does well here, and this filly showed improved form on handicap debut over 1m1f here last time, going under by a neck with the first two well clear. Due to be 4lb higher in future, and has a golden opportunity to go one better.
Poor efforts earlier in the year have seen him tumble in the weights, and he was back on track when third of 11 to Indomeneo at Haydock last time in refitted blinkers. Claims on that, but headgear not sure to work a second time.
Remains a maiden after nine starts, and recent efforts have left a bit to be desired, and had the run of things when a close last of four at Doncaster last time. Can do better if cheekpieces have a galvanising effect, but risky.
Scored over 1m here in June, and appeared top stay 1m1f when second of 7 to Dutch Coed at Hamilton last time, but she is unproven over this far. Not without a chance if she does stay, however.
Thriving at present, and added to a trio of placed efforts when winning a 1¼m handicap at Ayr last time, proving tough. Will continue to give a good account, and deserves a place on the shortlist.
Longstanding maiden who has bits of form which give him a chance here, but he is largely regressive, and makes limited appeal from 3lb out of the weights.
Won over 1m at Wetherby in May and has run to a similar level in defeat a couple of times since, including when 3L fourth of 15 to Red Seeker at Beverley last time. Takes a marked step up in trip now, though, and has stamina to prove.
