Just four wins in 34 turf starts, though two of those have come this summer at Salisbury (6f, soft) and Ffos Las (6f, good to firm). Visor back on after poor run at Brighton, needs absolute best to score in this grade from current mark.
Low-mileage Archipenko filly, won over 6f at Newbury last summer in novice company before missing 372 days (had wind surgery). Another good run on return but well held in handicap debut at Kempton (7f, AW; 16-1) last month.
Sir Prancealot filly is racking up the miles this season, with four wins from 16 starts. Scored in this grade last month at Brighton (6f, good; 11-2) but 3lb higher and well held since. Career-best demanded.
Experienced performer, has been running well in turf handicaps over 6f/7f lately without necessarily threatening to win one. Should give his running again and no reason he won't be competitive.
Havana Gold filly, on a roll after recording a hat-trick at Bath and Ffos Las over 5f-6f since early last month. Was all out to hang on last time and upped in grade now, ensuring she will have to work to defy latest rise in ratings.
Experienced five-year-old, hasn't won since 2017 and losing streak now stands at 25. Found only one too strong over C&D four weeks ago and could have place ambitions from 1lb lower mark now.
Into veteran stages now. A three-time C&D winner, he took advantage of lower AW rating to score at Wolverhampton over 6f recently, but will have to go some to double-up back on turf from this perch.

Young John (2/1), Smokey Lane (10/3), Gilt Edge (5/1), Angel Mead (6/1), Handytalk (10/1), Alicia Darcy (10/1), Kinglami (14/1)
