C&D winner in June but held twice since. Dangerous to rule out but current mark looks prohibitive and needs to bounce back from two tame efforts lately.
Decent sprinter in this grade and exploited a lenient mark to win at Wolverhampton early last month; backed it up with a determined run at Chepstow shortly after but denied the three-timer when racing off this mark last time. Vulnerable again here.
Run well here twice recently - had Brogans Bay in behind when second over C&D last month - and seems to have thrived since joining her current yard. On a handy mark and could be tough to resist if she gets a strong pace.
Can force the pace and already a four-time C&D winner. Been running out of steam lately and possible age is catching up with him, but he's a likeable character who has continued to race with enthusiasm. Thereabouts but needs luck for win only.
Returned from a break with two modest efforts so far in 2019; the latest of which was his debut run at this course when he was a well beaten sixth of ten last month. The drop in trip can help but the cheekpieces have been ineffective the last twice.
An habitual slow starter who outdid herself by refusing to race at Brighton earlier this month; only ever won in selling grade and has steadily dropped in the ratings over the last year. Also switched yards four times during the last twelve months.
Been absent for over a year and not shown much so far. Makes her debut for a yard that does well with others cast-offs but this filly still looks a work in progress and has plenty to prove on her first run on an AW surface.
Last win came on good to soft ground at Windsor last October but this season's form is well below that standard. Was placed over C&D (behind Sandfrankskipsgo) last July and still has something to find even if running to her best.
Out of the weights and was last of ten (Brogans Bay was the winner) here in June. Plenty to find on a literal reading of that effort and would appear to face a steep uphill test on these terms.
