Winner at Haydock off 2lb lower but below that level since. Handles any conditions but would need to be at his very best off this mark.
Twice a winner at Ripon this term but also boasts two course wins, including over this distance. Ran a blinder to be beaten a nose over a half furlong shorter here last time in a class 2. 2lb higher but likes it here and one to consider.
Speedy filly who is 5-19 to date. 4lb higher than last win but a good seventh in a class 2 here last time after being slowly away. Can be much quicker away but wide draw to overcome.
Long losing run now stretches back to April 2018 despite vastly reduced mark. Would need to lift on his two runs for new yard to be in the mix here.
Won a 6f handicap off 3lb lower at York in June, but has found life harder in three subsequent starts. Beginning to ease in the weights, but others appear to have stronger credentials all the same.
Won over this trip last year and on same mark as winning over 5f at Haydock in June. Kept on well when fourth in a class 2 over 5.5f here last time and one to consider. Can be slowly away but drawn well.
Both wins have come over this C&D and just 1lb higher than her July win. Can be inconsistent and disappointing the last twice. Needs to bounce back from a poor draw.
Winner off 4lb lower at Wolverhampton in July and has been racing to a consistent level of late. Goes well here and can't be ruled out but has a poor draw.
On a losing run dating back to June 2018 (for Richard Fahey) despite a tumbling mark. Below that level in recent starts for new yard and would need to be back to his best.
Five-time course winner; latest win here coming over 7f (best effort of the season; won three times). Very disappointing the last twice and drop in trip is a concern.
Windsor winner over 5f off 2lb higher in April and this distance isn't a concern. Form has been largely below that since although ran well when close here in July. Others look stronger.
In good form in a grade lower with a Carlisle win and a Catterick second, both over this distance. Drawn well for one who likes to go forwards but previous poor five visits here raises a concern.
7lb lower than last win at Wolverhampton in March but this is a far higher grade. Recent form has been well below par and others preferred. Declared here on Friday.
