Has not won since May 2016 which means she has taken a steep fall down the weights. She was seventh of 18 last time at York (1m). Has been eased a further 3lb and is down in trip. Has to be respected off this mark.
Opened his account for the year at Wolverhampton (1m½f) on the AW back in March. Has been unable to add to that since then, however, he has shown some signs of form on his last two starts. Has to be respected off this mark.
Picked up his opening win of the year on the AW at Wolverhampton (7f) back in March on his return to the UK after two runs at Meydan. Recent form is a big concern. Was last of 16 on his latest outing at Galway (7f). Others preferred.
Has an excellent record on the AW surface with six wins from 10 starts. He hasn't had the same success on turf, with just one victory in 15 attempts. Finished ninth of 16 last last time at Newmarket (6f). Can't be discounted.
Was on the right side of a photo-finish at Ayr three starts ago to score by a neck. He could only finish sixth of nine on his latest start at Chelmsford (6f) on the AW after going off as the 7/2 favourite. Stepping up in trip. Worth considering.
Came close to the fifth success of his career last time when he was second of four at Yarmouth (7f) after making the majority of the running. Remains off the same mark here so he is a leading player to go one place better.
Has a good strike-rate on turf, however, all of his successes have come in Italy. He was third of 11 last time at Chelmsford (1m) on the AW. He remains off the same mark as his last outing. Does need to improve in order to record his first UK win.
Has been in excellent form recently, with two victories from his last four starts. He was second of seven on his latest appearance on the AW at Wolverhampton (7f). Remains off the same mark. Worth considering.
His sole success on turf came two starts back in France at Deauville over the extended 7f trip. He has just one horse behind him last time in a seven runner field at Epsom (1m½f). Has been eased 3lb but others appeal more.
Experienced gelding who already racked up 50 races. She was successful at Chesptow (1m) back in May and since then has finishing second of three occasions, including her latest bid at Chepstow (7f). One to consider.
