Experienced gelding who has won nine times. He has fallen down the weights this year. Came home third of 13 last time here over 6f. Is up in trip and remains off the same mark. Has to be respected.
Has not come close to breaking his maiden this year in four outings. He was seventh of 12 on his latest attempt at Catterick (6f) when going off at 33/1. Needs to take a huge stride forward on what he has shown so far.
Is still a maiden after 13 starts, however, he has come close on a couple occasions this year, including latest when he was second of 13 over this C&D, beaten by ¾L. Has gone up just 1lb. Leading contender.
A three-time winner over this C&D. Has struggled for form so far this year. Could only finish 11th of 13 last time over this C&D, 8L off the winner. Is down 3lb to a mark he has to be considered from.
Has featured 23 times but is still a maiden. She was third of 13 on her latest appearance at Leicester (7f) and that position could have been better if she would have got a clear run. Remains off the same mark. Has each-way claims.
Was second of 13 over this trip on the AW at Kempton (7f) three runs ago. Then changed yards and has yet to shine in two outings since, including when he was 11th of 13 here over 6f last time. Back up in trip. Worth thinking about.
Still a maiden after nine starts. She produced her best run of the year so far last time when she was fourth of 13 at Kempton (7f) on the AW, 3½L off the winner. Drops down 1lb. One for the shortlist.
Completed a hat-trick of wins earlier this year in the best stretch of form in his career. Had to settle for ninth place of 11 on his last run at Catterick (7f). Is 0-10 on the AW but he is rated 4lb lower on the surface so he can't be ignored.
His only win so far came here over this C&D back in January 2018. Has struggled for form this year. Came home sixth of 11 on his latest effort at Musselburgh (7f). Down 1lb in the weights. Others are preferred.
Is still bidding for his opening success after 40 starts. Has not come close to his first win this year in what has been a busy campaign. He was fifth of 11 on his last outing at Redcar (1m). Is difficult to fancy.
All four of his wins have come at this track, one of which was over this distance. He was second of 13 here over 6f on his penultimate start, while he came home ninth of 11 last time at Chelmsford (6f). One to consider at a course he enjoys.
His sole success came over this C&D back in January 2017. Showed some modest form here earlier this year, however, he was at the very rear of the field last time in a 12 runner contest at Musselburgh (7f). Has to be respected off this mark.
Has had seven attempts to find his first win without success. He was seventh of 11 on his latest outing at Musselburgh (7f) where he was slowly into stride and never got into the contest. Others make more of an appeal here.
