C&D winner on heavy ground at this meeting last year and and followed up next time out. Best effort so far this season when seventh of 22 in a first-time visor at York last time and freshened up since; not ruled out if he can build on that.
Dual C&D winner. Off the mark on his second start for this yard at Ripon in May and back on that last winning mark following some subsequent below par performances. Career best needed in this contest and others arrive in better form.
Back on his last winning mark having failed to score in five starts so far this season. Sent off at 12/1 for this race last year but couldn't get competitive and others make more appeal.
Handicap winner at York in September 2018 but has largely struggled since and failed to build on a promising reappearance when well beaten at Ripon last time out. Assessor has refused to relent and others probably better handicapped.
In good form this season, winning twice at 5f but carries a 5lb penalty for his latest Carlisle success. Step back up in trip could be a potential source of improvement but he will need a career best and his best form is with soft in the going.
Impressive Newcastle winner in April and in good form without winning since, particularly at York last time when runner-up to a progressive sort. On the same mark and he's a contender if the cheekpieces have the same effect.
Won three times last year but has failed to back up a promising run in a competitive Ripon (6f) handicap when fourth of 20 on two subsequent efforts at 5f. Step back up in trip will suit but others probably better handicapped.
Won back-to-back races in May but has lost his way of late and he was beaten a long way at York last time out. Needs a career best to get competitive in this contest and comes with risks attached.
Rattled off a hat-trick last season and got her head back in front at Lingfield last time out. However, carries a 5lb penalty for that success and she's got plenty more on her plate here; drying ground will suit at least.
Gained a second career win on seasonal return at Redcar but has struggled in three starts since, beaten a long way after a slow start at Thirsk last time out. Looks vulnerable from this sort of mark in a race this competitive.
Won twice earlier in the season and while he's not the most consistent sort, he's clearly capable from this sort of handicap mark. Big field will suit and only beaten 1L in a competitive handicap at Thirsk last time.
Won this race last year and remarkably returns below that winning mark, despite some promising efforts of late, particularly at Thirsk last time out. Well-handicapped and ought to go well again given his versatility to conditions.
Won twice as a juvenile but struggling badly for form since joining this yard, well beaten at York last time out. Hard to recommend at present. Engaged here Thursday.
Shaped with promise on AW this winter and gained a first win for the season at Carlisle (7f, good-to-firm) back in May. Hasn't built on that since though and looks vulnerable to better handicapped sorts.
Four-time course winner and while three of those wins have come at 7f, he's equally as effective at 6f, as seen when winning the consolation race for the Stewards' Cup at Goodwood in 2018. Third in that race this year and he's a player on that form.
Two-time C&D winner for Marjorie Fife and arrives here bidding for a hat-trick following wins at Leicester and Pontefract (denied a clear run in the latter). 5lb penalty commands a career best here but he's worthy of consideration.
Justified favouritism in a novice event at Beverley in May 2018 and hinted at a return to form at York last time out when fourth of 10 (Pendleton second), though beaten 6¼L. May need a little more relief from the handicapper.
Pontefract specialist with five of his nine wins coming at that venue. Drying ground is sure to suit but handicapper looks in control at present, particularly in a race of this nature.
Has won twice this season, both in Class 5 handicaps and while he's a very consistent sort (beaten just ½L over 7f at Catterick last time) he looks vulnerable in a race this competitive.
On a losing run since July 2017 when trained by Paul Cole. Best recent effort came when beaten a neck over C&D back in June but has put in some abject performances either side of that run. Very well-handicapped on old form but hard to recommend.
Off the mark for the season at Bath in June and only beaten ½L back at that venue last time out. Not the most consistent sort but on a fair mark if he can build on that run.
C&D winner who got her head back in front at Redcar last time out over 7f. Drop back in trip will hold no fears and very nicely handicapped on her form from last year; cheekpieces retained.
Won twice in 2018 and she's a mightily consistent sort who has finished in the first three on six of her seven starts this year. Should bounce back from a rare below par effort at Musselburgh last time but has to prove she's as effective at 7f.
Really getting the hang of things now and has won two of his last three starts, both at Yarmouth. Forced to carry a 5lb penalty for the latest success though and potentially vulnerable in a race this competitive.
