Eight-race maiden who has emerged with credit since returning to a shorter trip (1m-1m1f); no extra inside the final furlong when beaten just under 2L by Spirit of Sarawan at Hamilton (1m½f, good) in July; 1lb lower.
Seven-race maiden; finished one place in front of today's rival Move In Faster when second to Hector's Here at Hamilton (1m1f, good to firm) in June; it's a complete unknown as to how he'll handle these conditions; top jockey booked.
Back to winning ways when slipping the field to record a third success at his beloved Pontefract (1m, good) last week; well handicapped on soft/heavy ground form in 2017; major player under a 5lb penalty despite a moderate draw.
Twice placed over similar trips in handicap company in June, and despite being fairly low-mileage overall (0-7) has fallen a couple of pounds in the weights since; didn't get home when a beaten favourite at Pontefract (1m) six days ago.
Back to form since rejoining Keith Dalgleish; 5lb higher than when beating Donnelly's Rainbow by a neck (Muraadef third) over 7f here (good to soft) in June; twice narrowly beaten since; stays this trip and should be on the premises.
Catterick specialist; dropping down the handicap after struggling for form in 2019, although it should be noted that he wasn't all that far behind Cliff Bay (fifth) over 7f here in June; is tackling a new trip on very testing ground; stamina?
15-race maiden who is arguably less exposed than that bare statistic implies; 0-5 at 7f and beyond; 25-1 when beaten by 1½L at Hamilton (1m½f, good) in early July.
Sole win came on debut at Ayr (6f, good) in June 2017; back to form with a narrow defeat at Hamilton (1m+, good) on his penultimate start but produced another laboured effort on good to soft ground at Ripon last week.
15-race maiden who has blown cold far more often than hot; one of his better efforts came at this track in June (7f, good to soft) when a close third to today's rival Cliff Bay.
Without a win since June 2017; has made just the three starts for his current handler and could be potentially working back to form from a lowly mark; 20-1 when third to a subsequent winner (French Flyer second) at Hamilton latest; draw?
Nine-race maiden who is yet to post a noteworthy effort; steps back up in trip from 6f but rates as nigh impossible to make any sort of reasoned argument for; look elsewhere with confidence.
No win since his days with David Simcock (June 2016), bringing the record to 1-23 at Nottingham last month; will probably be suited by dropping back in trip but it's very unlikely he'll be competitive nevertheless.
14-race maiden; has tackled various trips (didn't stay 1m3f-1m4f) since finishing a never nearer 2L third to Champagne Terri over 1m1f here (soft) in May; should almost certainly handle these conditions.
Nine-race maiden; big odds and well beaten on her last couple of visits to Carlisle (1m-1m1f); all hopes are pinned upon recent wind surgery proving beneficial.
Well beaten on all four starts, including on return to action/handicap debut at Leicester (1m, heavy) 13 days ago; truthfully already looks to be a hopeless case; has no chance whatsoever on form shown to date.
