Looking very well handicapped on old form, and almost made it pay over C&D last time out, beaten a length by a well-treated one. Draw not ideal for one that can be slow away, but handles some cut and has to be taken seriously here.
Easy winner over 6f at Nottingham two starts ago, but couldn't back that up at Doncaster last time and not hard to think the handicapper has her now. Sharp 5f probably not ideal for her either. Others preferred.
In the frame last three starts but in truth, was well beaten at Musselburgh last time out and she's yet to score in 12 starts. Soft ground asks a new question as well, and isn't best drawn, so overall, not hard to look elsewhere for the winner.
Popped up at Redcar in June but three efforts since then have left something to be desired, although it was a bit better at Thirsk last time. Capable of the upset, but pinning down when she will strike is a game in itself.
Only had the four starts, so at least has possible improvement in her, and a couple of her runs to date have shown promise. Sharp 5f might suit her, and if she can handle slower ground, could get involved with another step forward.
Starting to find his feet this season, in the frame on last two starts, including over this C&D last time out. On a winning mark, draw not ideal but ground should be ideal and has to be on anyone's shortlist for this.
Now 1lb lower than her last winning mark and it was arguably a step in the right direction at Newcastle last time, although ultimately she was well beaten. Needs more again, but not badly drawn and is a lively outsider.
Right back to form when successful at Thirsk on Friday, that being his first win for three years so no good thing to follow it up. Trip and ground no issue though, so if in the same form, has chances under the penalty.
Four wins in 45 starts tells you she's no win machine, but she has put in a couple of decent efforts this summer and this arguably a bit easier than the Haydock race she finished second in last time. Handles the ground and not ruled out.
No win in 16 starts and in truth, her recent efforts are nothing to shout about. Falling quickly down the handicap but she shows no signs of being able to take advantage, and others readily preferred.
Veteran that's won just two of his 76 starts, but on the plus side has refound a bit of form and only gave way late on at Leicester last time. Likes to blaze a trail and will need to be caught. Versatile ground wise and has place chances.
No wins or places in 29 starts tells you it's own story, and although there's the odd effort that makes you think all is not completely lost, she's still hard to make a solid case for.
Only scored three times in her 62-race career and on current form, she doesn't look like making it four any time soon. Readily brushed aside on last couple of starts and more of the same looks likely.
Front runner that tends to get caught more often than not, and in truth has been well beaten lately, including in a selling handicap last time. Might set the target for others to aim at, but looks an unlikely winner.
Just the three starts so far, shown little but at least goes handicapping on a basement mark. Still hard to fancy, and needs a big chunk of improvement if she's to challenge here.
