Broke his maiden when winning by a neck over C&D on good-to-soft ground last time out. Raised 2lb for that victory and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Running well in defeat this campaign most recently when 5L fifth over C&D last month. Previously third at Carlisle (6f, good-to-firm) and is of interest once more. Also declared 17:45 Carlisle Monday.
Victorious in a 5f handicap at Chepstow (good-to-soft) on his penultimate start. Struggled when ninth at Wolverhampton (6f) on the AW last time out and needs to put that latest effort behind him.
Successful in a C&D handicap on good-to-soft going on her penultimate start. Struggled in a 20 runner handicap at Redcar (6f, good) a week later but not written off just yet.
Signs of a possible return to form when 3L sixth behind Mr Greenlight in a C&D handicap on good-to-soft ground two weeks ago. Interesting off a mark 11lb lower than for his most recent turf success.
Held in two starts since recording a victory in a 6f handicap at Ripon (good-to-soft) in June. Interesting to see how he performs in this contest.
Promising 3¾L seventh in a 12 runner good-to-soft ground event over C&D on handicap debut last time out. Remains open to improvement and market support would be notable.
Ran well to finish a neck second to Mr Greenlight in a C&D contest on good-to-soft going last month. Fair 7L eighth in a big field at Redcar (6f, good) next time out and interesting to see how she performs.
Beaten just 1¾L when finishing fifth in a C&D handicap on good-to-soft ground last time out. Held by a few of these on that form and is fitted with blinkers for the first time.
55 race maiden has struggled in recent starts including over an extended 5f at Chester (good) last month. Others make more appeal racing from out of the handicap.
Career best effort when finishing third in a 5f classified event at Musselburgh (good) last month. Held on handicap debut prior to that but remains open to improvement.
