Had lost his way since showing smart form in 2017, but halted the slide when runner-up to Lawmaking over 1m at Chelmsford last time. Stays this far, but needs to show he can build on that mini-revival.
Game winner over C&D in July, and got back to winning ways over 1m1f at Ripon last time. Not especially favoured by these weights, but hard to rule out in his current mood, and will give it his best shot.
Suited by a sharp track and won at Lingfield (AW) and Brighton in April. Has continued in form since, but she may prove vulnerable at these weights and stiffer track is a slight worry, too.
Won over 1m at Chepstow in May, and has run creditably on both starts since over 1¼m, finishing third of 6 to Starfighter in a handicap at Salisbury last time. A repeat would put him in the mix.
Won his first couple of starts (6f-7f) with a degree of authority and has progressed in stronger races since. Might have won again if he'd kept straight at Newmarket (1m) last time, but stamina for this trip not assured.
Threw a winning chance away at Goodwood on penultimate start, but improved to post an easy win in novice company at Pontefract (1m) last time, and big chance if that is taken at face value.
