Placed on four of his five starts since returning this season including when 3½L third in a 1m4f handicap at Leicester (good-to-firm) last time out. Cheekpieces reapplied that day are retained for this event.
Completed a 1m2f hat-trick when victorious at Yarmouth (good-to-firm) in July last year. Held in three starts this campaign however and blinkers are tried for the first time on this occasion.
Won a bumper and a maiden hurdle last year and finished a decent 6L fourth in a 1m2f novice event at Salisbury (good-to-firm) last month. Interesting runner on handicap debut.
Five time winner but disappointing in three starts since finishing 1L second over an extended 1m5f at Chester (good) in May. Races off a mark 1lb lower than for his latest success.
Built on a promising second place finish when winning over an extended 1m5f at Chester (soft) last time out. Raised 5lb for that victory and quicker ground forecast here no issue.
Placed three times from nine starts including when runner-up at Nottingham (1m2f, good) in June. Not beaten far in a valuable 1m4f event at Ascot (good-to-firm) last time out and is a notable runner in this contest.
Made a winning seasonal debut over 1m2f at Beverley (good-to-firm) in April. Some decent efforts in defeat since and drop in trip should suit having finished 8L fifth over 1m6f at Sandown (good) last time out.
Completed a double when winning by ¾L in a firm ground 1m6f handicap at Bath last month. Raised 2lb for that victory and holds strong claims dropping back in trip.
Sole success came by 13L in a four runner C&D handicap on good-to-firm ground in April. Decent effort when third in a 1m2f contest at Epsom (good) last start and races off a mark 6lb higher than for that C&D triumph.
Run well in defeat in all three starts this campaign most recently when 1¾L third in a 1m6f handicap at Nottingham (good) just over a month ago. Cheekpieces tried for the first time.
