Promise in novice/maiden company and produced a career best when third of 17 at Ayr last time out. That form looks solid and proven to some extent with cut in the ground.
Consistent sort who has run to a similar level since switching to handicap company. Needs to improve if he's going to get his head in front here but solid enough place claims if he handles conditions.
Produced a solid run when winning a soft ground novice event at Thirsk last time out. Conditions seemingly in her favour and there's every chance she will have improved in the interim (52 day break). Fascinating runner for a yard that do well here.
Improved from debut to finish placed on his next two starts. Conditions are an unknown here but every chance he can improve on handicap debut.
Promise in a trio of novice/maiden efforts but hasn't improved since switching to handicap company. Dropped another 2lb and others make more appeal.
Won back-to-back races in June but progress halted subsequently when tried in handicaps. This is no easier than her latest assignment but has won on soft and yard do well with their fillies.
Finished a close second at Hamilton when effectively 3lb wrong at the weights at Hamilton last time out. That came on heavy ground and every chance he can gain compensation here from an ideal draw.
C&D winner here in July but has gone off the boil in recent starts and he was beaten a long way on heavy ground last time out. Hard to fancy on that evidence.
Well beaten in three starts in novice company but major progress on handicap debut when fourth of 13 at Bath last time, sticking to the task well. Well placed that day but not ruled out if building on that.
