Has been in the form of his life over the past year including three victories over course and distance including a win in July by 4L. Looks the one they have to beat coming back from a break and capable on an easy surface.
Began the season well with a good effort at Doncaster but has a downward profile since then. Certainly capable on his old form but his current disposition doesn't lend itself to the thought he is a likely winner here.
Still looks to be on the upgrade and ran his best race to date when winning at Doncaster at the end of July; more on his plate here and untried on a really soft surface but certainly a leading contender.
Generally struggled this term but better earlier this month when sixth in a blanket finish at Windsor (where he tends to run well). Needs to build on that but if doing so couldn't be discounted.
Has been very consistent on his last three outings and will relish the ground being softer; probably needs to do more to get competitive but certainly not one to rule out easily.
Experienced gelding, unable to get off the mark in seven starts for new handler, though recent 6f efforts at Salisbury and Ffos Las suggest it won't be long. Any easing of the ground conditions may be a concern.
Quirky sort who is fairly useful on his day but can look less than generous in a finish with just one win from 24 starts. Mark appeals but another tame effort at Leicester in June.
