Arrives here bidding for a hat-trick after a promising success at Salisbury last time out. Opening handicap mark looks fair enough and may do better if he can learn to settle; likely pace angle.
Made it two wins from four starts on handicap debut at Ascot last time out. Drying ground will suit and he ought to go well again with only a 5lb rise to cope with.
Novice winner at Beverley in May and while he wasn't at his best at Royal Ascot, it was a more promising effort at York last month. Shapes as if he may improve for the step up in trip.
Two wins from three starts after his Newbury success last time out. More needed against these rivals from his opening handicap mark though.
Winner of a novice event at Lingfield as a juvenile and a respectable effort in the Super Sprint at Newbury last time out. Wouldn't appear to have anything in hand from this sort of handicap mark though.
Off the mark at the third attempt in a Windsor novice event last time out. Well bred sort who ought to appreciate a return to quicker ground here if the rain stays away, workable handicap mark.
Off the mark at the third attempt in a Newbury novice event last time. That form done no favours by the runner-up here though earlier this week; needs to improve to defy this mark.
Runner-up on each of his three starts but would need to improve a fair chunk now stepped up in trip if he's to get his head in front on handicap debut here. Wears first-time visor.
Won a three-runner novice event at Sandown second time out in good style but well beaten back at that venue in Listed class. Needs more up in trip.
Improved for the step up in trip when runner-up at Yarmouth last time. Handicap debut here and his mark is only fair; needs improvement.
A winner on debut at Wetherby and respectable runs in two subsequent starts but only third of eight on handicap debut last time out in a much lesser race than this.
Has shown promise in two starts since debut but gives the impression he will be better over a longer trip. Others preferred.
Only narrowly denied on handicap debut at York last time out and the winner and third have boosted the form since. Only nudged up 1lb for that run and rates as a leading player here.
Hasn't looked straightforward in four starts to date and well beaten at Newbury last time out when only seventh of 10. Hard to build a case for.
