Largely in very good form so far this year, winning at Carlisle earlier in the campaign and running creditably in several other starts but uncharacteristically flopped at York latest (eighth of nine). Down in class here however he could bounce back.
Lightly-raced sort (yet to win); returned from ten-months off for his handicap debut at Wetherby (took strong hold; hopeless task from track position). Running on and unlucky second at Sandown latest a compelling run for his chances here.
Backed up promising stable debut when landing C&D maiden handicap in commanding style in June. Never nearer third at Pontefract since another solid run and interesting he's since had a wind-op and wears a tongue-tie; leading claims.
5L winner of a 1m½f class 5 at Beverley earlier this season but largely struggled since. Handicap sliding back in his favour so first place since is now possible.
Scraped home on C&D comeback but badly out of sorts since including here in June. Handicap mark now 4lb lower than aforementioned win but unlikely it seems to take advantage.
Quirky customer (usually a reluctant starter) and again missed the break at Newcastle latest when a rather distant third of 11 over 1m2f. 1m a bare minimum and slow starts accentuated at the trip.
Made debut on turf as a two-year-old in November 2017, but had ran exclusively on the AW since before pretty dismal last of 11 at Haydock last month. Hard to be positive on the back of that.
Seven-race maiden placed in his first three career starts but hasn't since. Still lightly raced in handicaps but eighth of 13 at York in better race in May not devoid of promise so has place potential here.
Won impressively on quick ground here over 1m2f on season reappearance but tailed off off 6lb higher over 1m4f next time. Back to 1m2f latest he failed to beat a single rival and now rates a risky proposition.
Winner for Clive Cox at two and surely will soon gain her first win for her ultra-prolific yard based on narrow defeat at Beverley two starts back and third since at Bath. Consistent sort sure to go well.
