Took a veteran's sprint over C&D last time his second C&D win of late (looks in a good spell currently). More consistent than he has been in the past he's likely to be in the same form; under a 4lb penalty, likely to be involved in the shake-up.
Failed to reward market support at Chelmsford on his last start merely adding to his already inconsistent record. Does have some form which would give him a good chance here; interesting to see if the money comes again dropping to 6f (0-5 at trip).
Misbehaved prior to the start when winning at Ripon (6f, good/firm); appeared suited by the return to a firm surface. Disappointed last time down in trip (5f) and back on the AW; cheekpieces (first-time) now added in a bid to rejuvenate.
Possibly found a busy period which contained two seconds and a win catching up with him of late; well held on his last three starts (very weak in the market last time). Next given much of a break, best left alone until showing positive signs again.
Both his starts this year have left plenty to be desired having not really shown much form for this yard in four starts overall. Always behind at Doncaster (6f, firm) when last seen; easily passed over.
Been knocking at the door of late and unlucky not to have landed an event such as this; last four runs (all over 5f, Beverley) indicating he can win off this mark. Needs events to go all his own way but unlikely to be far away, if he gets the breaks.
Returns to turf having been fourth in a 6f Fibresand sprint last time off her falling mark. Ought to be able to take advantage of this mark but hasn't as yet been able to do so; saddled with a wide draw and others more persuasive.
Keeps knocking at the door, essentially running well of late without much good fortune, returning a string of placed efforts. With a career record that reads 1-30 (probably better than that) she's hard to recommend for win purposes, visor now on.
Rather in-and-out character who hit a purple patch around the turn of the year (won three 6f events in a row). Demonstrated his inconsistency since then; would have a chance on his August C&D second (run poorly twice since); needs to bounce back.
Drawn widest of all this 3yo maiden faces a difficult task from stall 12 having his first try over 6f. Has one or two pieces of reasonable form but surprising if he can trouble the principals here from wide out off this sort of mark.
Three-time French winner (6f-1m) who has run better than his finishing position would suggest for this yard on more than one occasion. Ran free last time (7f), may be worth another try back sprinting off a basement mark; interesting if supported.
Course winner who took advantage of falling back to his last winning mark when winning at Nottingham in June. Hard to catch right though with few good performances since that last win; visor worn for last win back on, limited appeal.
