Made a fine return from an absence when second, albeit well-held, in 1m3f Hamilton handicap last month. Off the same mark for this and could be dangerous if she strips fitter but must give 4lb to nearest rival.
Largely consistent but form has started to plateau recently, including when 5L fifth in 1m4f Ripon handicap on Monday. Remains on the same mark and handicapper is taking no chances but claims on best form.
Hasn't been seen on the Flat since September 2018 and had a failed spell over hurdles for Dan Skelton. Still above his last winning mark and makes his first start for this yard. Has a bit to prove.
Good form on the Flat for one of his previous trainers but has been significantly out of form recently. Latest heavy defeat at Nottingham (1m6f, good) offers little appeal and needs to resurrect his best form to be competitive.
Failed to win in 10 starts to date but has been consistent this season, including good second in 1m4f Ripon handicap on Tuesday. Not penalised for that effort and the one to beat if he runs to his usual mark.
Tailed off in five starts for Kieth Dalgleish, including 13L eighth of 13 at Newcastle (2m, standard) last time. First start for new yard but others readily preferred.
Seven-race maiden who has regressed after a promising start to the season, including 9L eighth in 1m2f Beverley handicap. Has plenty to find for the step up in trip.
