Hasn't won since his debut and beaten a long way in Group 3 company last time. Hard to make a case for at present.
Only win from seven starts came at Nottingham as a juvenile but she went close over C&D last time out. Clearly in good form at present and while the widest draw isn't ideal, she holds each-way claims.
Made it three wins from seven starts at Goodwood in June and not beaten far from his revised mark over C&D last time out. Could do better if he gets a strong pace to aim at.
Only has one win to his name but produced just about a career best effort in Listed company at Hamilton last time out. Step back up in trip should suit and a 3lb rise is manageable for that.
Looks a little unlucky to only have one win to her name from 10 starts and it was another fine effort at Goodwood last week where she met some interference in running. Possible she can build on that here up in trip.
Bolted up by 5L at Ayr on his fifth career starts but subsequent handicap mark has made life tough; may need some relief from the handicapper.
Got his head back in front at Goodwood earlier in the campaign and has been shaping as if he wants a step up to this sort of trip since. Plenty to like about his attitude and can go well for top jockey.
Showed ability in France. Got his head in front in a Carlisle maiden but beaten a long way on debut for this yard at Goodwood last time out. Has a bit to prove from this sort of handicap mark.
Soft ground winner at Ripon in a five-runner handicap but well beaten in two subsequent starts in deeper races from her revised mark. Dropped 1lb and others make more appeal.
Yet to win in four turf starts but got his head back in front on AW last time out at Kempton over a similar trip. Still lightly raced and not one to rule out if the rain stays away.
