Dual 6f AW winner for Charlie Hills ran just once and rather moderately for Sir Mark Todd. Ran similarly disappointingly at Newmarket on stable debut and looks in the grips of the handicapper at present.
Up 5lb following a career-best win on soft ground at Catterick over this trip and in a decent time. Has gone well here previously and off this mark. Every chance of being involved if building on the run.
Pulled up following a gelding operation in April and eased when looking a tough ride last month. Well handicapped if bouncing back but questions to answer at present.
Gained a second career win when scoring over a mile here last month and ran to a similar level in a bunch finish when fourth at Kempton latest. In good form and likely to make another bold bid from the front.
Winner off 5lb lower over this C&D in May but has been disappointing in three runs here since. Others look better handicapped and may find this grade tough again.
Sole win came in France in very testing conditions and has shown a clear preference for soft ground since arriving in Britain. Hard to know if he'll be suited by this surface and needs to leave a poor run behind.
Twice a winner over 6f here and now just 1lb higher than last handicap win. Not far off that level in a bunch finish at Kempton latest when failing to settle. Went close for this apprentice three starts back. Likely contender.
Proved inconsistent of late for Richard Hannon and still remains 6lb higher than last win. Has winning course form but others likely better handicapped on this stable debut.
