C&D winner in the past who took a step back in the right direction when fifth at Southwell (5f) last month. Fallen down to a workable handicap mark and respected if first-time blinkers have the right effect.
Excels at this course, winning five times, but out of sorts since including over C&D. Regressive and age may have caught up with him now.
Has been a reliable sort this season, winning at Nottingham (5f) in August before sixth in 5f Doncaster handicap last time. Capable of a bounce back and can't be discounted.
Had lost his way over the summer until registering a couple of seconds before front-running success at Beverley (5f) last time. 4lb rise seems harsh but well-handicapped on best form.
Notched a fifth C&D in August but not hit that form since, including when down the field at Ayr latest. Bounce back required.
In fine form with three C&D wins this year and wasn't disgraced with 2L sixth at Catterick (5f) last time. Leading player at her favoured venue.
C&D winner in the past who shaped better the result suggested when eighth at Ayr (5f) on latest start. Usually fresh this time of year so merits place claims.
