Several good efforts posted at this course and is reunited with the same jockey who was in the plate when he won over C&D in April; he's been expensive to follow since, though. Stiff test again under topweight.
Best form posted on the AW surfaces and notable he's yet to win over this trip either on turf or synthetics. Well beaten in both starts since wind surgery and comes here with a lot to prove.
C&D winner last week and 5lb extra does her few favours but she reserves her best for this course and its very likely she'll be in the thick of the action once more. Has to merit consideration once more despite a poor wins to runs ratio (2-45).
C&D winner last August but only lightly raced since. Needed the run when 7th on reappearance last month (De Little Engine ahead of her on that occasion) so can be expected to strip fitter. The betting can guide, though.
Has form to reverse with Joyful Dream from last week and comes into this on the back of a losing run that stretches back to last December. Dropped in the weights accordingly but struggling to find her level just now.
On a very attractive mark in comparison to the pick of his past exploits but has to be a worry that he's never won over this trip before now. Been placed once over 7f but others look more convincing over this distance.
Folded tamely when headed here last week and his losing run is in danger of becoming a hard habit to break. He's got bits of form that suggest he can make the frame if he's on song but he does need to dig a good bit deeper than he has done of late.
0-11 but came the close she's been to winning when he finished a close second over C&D in July; the filly hasn't really progressed since and is another who needs a lot to go her way now.
