Dark Angel colt that won nicely on Carlisle debut (form okay) but ran well below par at Chester last time, a most disappointing favourite. Needs to bounce back after that but this does look a little easier. No easy task under the penalty though.
Placed on four of his five starts, and ran as well as he has done in a better race than this at Ayr last time out, finding only the one too good again. Handled soft ground well on debut and ha a solid chance of finally getting off the mark.
Ninth on debut at Carlisle in a race working out very well, and then improved on that when a running-on fourth at Pontefract last time out. Needs another step forward but that's far from impossible, and this ground may help.
130,000gns yearling son of Society Rock is a half-brother to three winners, made a good impression on debut when a staying-on fifth at Haydock (soft ground) and looks a potential improver. One with a good chance today.
Elzaam gelding, bred to have a bit of speed about him but the fact he's been gelded for his debut is a slight worry. Yard 3-27 with 2yos first time out over the past year, and on balance, others make more appeal.
Son of Zoffany that has been gelded since his (disappointing) debut at Windsor back in June, and connections already go for the hood as well; enough warning signs there to make you look elsewhere today.
Poet's Voice colt that's shown little in two starts and would need a huge chunk of improvement to get involved here; others are readily preferred.
Showcasing gelding that showed a bit more on second start at Beverley but looks one for 3yo handicaps next year rather than today.
War Command filly that was well beaten on debut at Salisbury last month but the penny was dropping late on, and gave the impression she could do better. Needs an awful lot more here, but not a complete lost cause.
Iffraaj filly that's run to a similar level all three starts, one that would give her place chances here, but she's not really improving and may find others going past her today. Ground asks a new question too.
