Won on debut for this yard over 7f at Thirsk but hasn't really built on that in three runs since. Likely vulnerable over a quick 6f such as this and seemingly holds no secrets from the handicapper.

C&D winner who got his head back in front at Yarmouth last time but a 6lb penalty for that leaves him vulnerable here and yard struggling a little for form.

In good form last year and won three times including Ripon's big sprint handicap. Fair efforts in defeat in two runs since and likely has one in him from this mark, though it may not be a race quite this competitive.

Made it five wins for the season at Beverley in June and may have done too much too soon at Ascot last time. However, needs plenty more in this company to land any sort of blow.

Made it three wins from his first four starts at Newbury in Listed company on his return to action. Found Group 1 company too tough when slow to break in the Commonwealth Cup but produced a better effort in a Newbury Group 3 last time; interesting.

Back on his last winning handicap mark but out of form since his Kempton success in the winter. Conditions in his favour but out of form in recent starts and needs a career best to land this contest.

C&D winner last year prior to a dead-heat success in the Ayr Gold Cup on heavy ground. Badly out of form in three runs this year but acts on quick ground and only 1lb above his last winning mark. Wears first-time blinkers.

Has won three of his last five starts, all at Hamilton with some cut in the ground. Produced a career best last time out but will need another under a penalty and would ideally like some rain to arrive.

Twice a winner on AW for David Simcock but yet to get off the mark for this yard and he's yet to win on turf. Respectable effort last time at Ascot but others make more appeal in a deep race.

Talented sprinter who gets his ideal trip/ground here. Still above his last winning handicap mark but thereabouts in all four starts this year and gives the impression he has one in him from this mark; booking of Moore a positive.

C&D winner earlier in the campaign and not beaten far at Hamilton two starts back by Air Raid. Disappointed at Ascot last time though and would need a career best here from 2lb above his last winning handicap mark.

Belatedly got his head back in front at York in June but failed to build on that in any way back at that venue last time when last of 15. Return to quicker ground may help and he's not short on ability; can't be ruled out.

Made it four wins from 14 starts at Newmarket last time out when justifying favouritism. 4lb higher here but gets his optimum conditions and tends to find plenty for pressure.

Bolted up out of the blue at York (20/1) in May but struggling in two subsequent starts from his revised handicap mark. At his best when allowed to dominate and that looks unlikely here.

A winner at Windsor earlier in the campaign, landing his third handicap of the season and running well in defeat since, particularly at Ascot last month when sticking to his task well. Having to carry a penalty here isn't ideal though.

Won back-to-back handicaps last year and produced a huge effort when runner-up in 2018's renewal of this contest. Remarkably returns on a lower handicap mark this time around and latest two starts were not devoid of encouragement.

Useful sprinter in France (beaten just a neck in Group 3 class) and getting the hang of things for this yard in recent times. Step back up in trip will suit and not ruled out, despite having to carry a penalty.

Tends to always be thereabouts in competitive handicaps and has run well in defeat on all four starts this campaign but his very best efforts have come at 7f and an easy 6f here possibly not ideal. Wears first-time blinkers.

Firm ground winner at Nottingham in June last year and that's his only success to date. Wouldn't appear to have anything in hand from this mark judged on his two efforts in Group company so far this campaign.

Gained a fourth turf success at Windsor and has arguably put up two career best efforts in defeat subsequently. Another needed here but not ruled out with optimum ground/trip in his favour.

Won two of his first three starts and while he's not won since, he's produced three smart efforts in defeat so far in 2019. Very best efforts on turf have come with cut in the ground though and that probably makes him vulnerable unless rain arrive.

Grand performer on his day and a Group 3 winner back in 2016. Got his head back in front on seasonal return at Doncaster in May but subsequent efforts suggest he may need some relief from the handicapper.

Prolific when winning four times back in 2017 and in good form on AW this winter. Promising effort on return at Newcastle in late June and not ruled out under his ideal conditions here with a workable mark on return to turf.

Losing run goes back to a Listed success in 2016 and while it was his best effort for some time at York in June, he hasn't managed to replicate that twice since. Has placed in the last three renewals of this race so can't be ruled out.

In good form at the start of the campaign with a placed effort at Thirsk before a success at Ripon but well below that form in three starts since and wants cut in the ground to be seen at his best.

Verdict

A typically wide open renewal of this contest and one that can go the way of JUSTANOTHERBOTTLE who may have had this race as a long term target after an excellent second last year. He returns from a lower handicap mark this time around and looks as if he could be the one to beat. Aljady is interesting in first-time headgear back down in trip while last year's Ayr Gold Cup winner Baron Bolt is interesting if the blinkers can spark a revival.
