C&D winner who was only beaten 1L here last time out. Always seems to run his race at this venue and has scored from a higher mark in the past; each-way player.
Not seen since he was withdrawn at Doncaster in May. Feasibly handicapped if ready to go on his return here and has shaped like this step back up in trip will suit. Any rain would be a bonus.
Novice winner as a juvenile but has looked regressive in three runs this campaign. First-time hood might help him settle better but has plenty of questions to answer for now.
Heavy ground winner at Leicester last time out and has been in good throughout most of this campaign. On a workable mark still, well drawn and any deterioration in conditions would suit.
Two-time course winner but has only won once since his last success here in 2017 and all his best form is over the minimum trip. Wide draw not ideal and others preferred.
Off the mark at the third attempt when winning at Newcastle in September. Makes his seasonal reappearance from a workable handicap mark and less exposed than most in here; turf debut.
7f winner at Thirsk earlier in the campaign and the stiff nature of this track should suit. Her better efforts have come on quicker ground though and she was only third of six in a weak race at Carlisle last time out.
Two-time C&D winner, the second of those coming when getting the better of Inexes in June. Ran well in defeat here last time out and she's still feasibly handicapped on old form.
