Veteran who is on a long losing run. Ran respectably when tried in cheekpieces at Bath (5f, firm) at the start of the month. Slightly more needed in this especially from out of the handicap.
Got back on the winning keel at Bath in May but has been well held in three starts since, including 3L fifth at Sandown (5f, good) in July. Is back on his last winning mark but may be vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
Seems to be better on AW than the turf and latest third in 6f Lingfield handicap looks to be flattering given how well-held he was. More needed in this contest but jockey booking is notable.
Record stands at 3-13 and overcame horrific start to be narrowly denied in 5f Nottingham handicap at the start of the month. Remains on a competitive mark and could go well at a price.
Filly who is in flying form recently and defied the jump in class to win 5f Ascot contest with something to spare in July. 4lb rise suggests handicapper isn't taking any chances but is a leading contender nonetheless.
Lingfield winner on his penultimate start but raced too freely on latest start at Leicester (6f, heavy). Not without claims off the same mark but needs to settle to give himself the best chance.
Hasn't added to Windsor novice success on debut but was a good third in 6f Doncaster handicap 11 days ago. Consistency runs to her mark and has each-way chances.
