Losing run goes back to a Group 2 success in 2017. Shaped like a return to form may be imminent at Newmarket last time though behind King's Advice and while this is no easier task off top weight, he's not one to rule out.
C&D winner. Has a remarkable strike-rate since joining this yard and won with a fair amount in hand again at Newmarket last time out. 7lb rise may not be enough to stop him going in again.
Won back-to-back races at the start of last season but losing run has mounted up to 11 after a moderate effort at Newbury last time out. No obvious excuses that day and seemingly in the handicapper's grip at present.
Won each of his first three starts including a valuable conditions race at Newbury and only narrowly denied in Listed company at Chantilly on return. No match for King's Advice last time out but better off at the weights at least.
A winner over hurdles at Huntingdon in January but tailed off on his return to turf last time out and hasn't won in this sphere since 2016. Hard to fancy.
Made it three wins from his last seven starts at Newmarket last time out when stepped up to this trip for the first time. 3lb rise looks on the lenient side for that and booking of Dettori an obvious plus.
Prolific last year when winning six races and only narrowly denied by King's Advice over C&D in May. Progress seemingly halted subsequently and others arrives in better form.
Last success came over C&D and finally back below his last winning handicap mark but hasn't looked like a return to form is imminent so far this season. Booking of Moore looks significant though.
A 1m2f Sandown success is his only win to date but he's run well in two very valuable handicaps so far this year. Needs a bit of improvement for the step up in trip but isn't one to rule out.
More prolific on AW than turf but stayed on strongly to win at Ayr in June. On and off the bridle for a long way at York last time out in Group 3 company and opposable from above his highest winning handicap mark here.
Has three wins to his name but all on AW and yet to score on turf. Has run well at this venue but questions remain over this trip and others preferred.
Still a turf maiden but showed she had ability away from artificial surfaces when runner-up at Nottingham in Listed comapny. Doesn't look entirely straightforward (very keen last time) but there's question marks over this new trip.
Multiple Group 3 winner in South Africa for Mike De Kock but not at his best towards the end of his time there and well beaten in two UK starts. Plenty to find on form.
