Heavy-ground winner over 1m3f at Carlisle in May, remains 2lb clear of that winning mark and hasn't been crying out for this trip on evidence to date. Something to prove on stamina front.
Couple of wins in six runs, including on AW at Wolverhampton. Goes right up in distance on first visit to this venue, doubtful he has shown his best just yet. Possible improver.
Winner over 1m6f at Sandown in July off 70, held there next time having gone up 5lb in ratings. Races from same mark and tackles new trip. Second runner for trainer in this field.
2-2 on AW so far, twice scoring over 1m6f at Chelmsford. Up 5lb from last month's win there but every chance he'll relish this new test and on the shortlist.
Arrives here seeking a hat-trick after 1m4f wins at Thirsk (soft) and Chepstow (good) last month. Significantly higher mark to contend with and is 0-10 on AW surfaces previously.
