Ran well on debut for his current yard when second of 11 at Epsom last month; that was on the back of a placed effort at Pontefract, which hinted at a return to form. He's now on a handy mark and this ease in grade can help. One to bear in mind.
Wears blinkers for the first time after a handful of below par runs since he won over C&D on good to soft ground back in June. He's down in grade and the jockey is flying at present, so has claims if he can bounce back. Another for the shortlist.
Like many of her stablemates she's been kept busy this season and has run some good races in defeat. However, her limitations are clear and the regressive form has to be a worry in spite of the tumbling handicap mark. Others more appealing.
Winner on the Polytrack at Kempton last month but held from this mark twice since; hasn't won on turf since his juvenile days with Roger Varian but does cope with a sound surface. Well worth a betting check.
Won here over 7f on his penultimate start and possible he needed the run when below par in a lady riders race over the same trip last month. Respected on the best of his form but a mile does stretch him to the limit.
A lightly raced three-year-old who starts his handicap career on a very workable mark but was well held when finishing fourth at Epsom when last seen and his absence since April has to be a concern.
Her rider is on the crest of a wave after another valuable win at Doncaster on Saturday but this well-bred filly is a lesser light in his burgeoning book of rides. The drop to 7f didn't work out last time and she has something to find back at 1m.
