Scored at this track over 6f back in February, while his most recent success came at Pontefact (5f) five runs ago. Was not far away last time over this C&D when he was fourth of 11. Has gone down 1lb. Worth consideration.
Has been successful twice in her last four starts, with her latest victory coming at Bath over the extended 5f trip. Could only finish fourth of nine last time Leicester (7f). Back down in trip. Leading contender.
Picked up his third win of the year last time at Redcar where he was game in the closing stages to hold on by a neck. Has gone up just 4lb for his latest win. One for the shortlist as he looks to follow up.
Ended a long sequence without success when he scored at Catterick (5f) three starts ago. Featured over this C&D earlier this month where he came home fourth of 10. Drops down 1lb. Has each-way claims.
Has struggled for form this year, however, she was much better last time out over this C&D where she was fourth of nine, beaten by 3L. Set to race off the same mark so she will need to improve again to pick up more success.
Experienced gelding who scored over this distance at Chelmsford two runs ago. Was disappointing last time though as he could only finish seventh of 12 runners at Southwell (5f). One to think about here.
A six-time winner on turf but is 0-2 on the AW so far. His latest effort came at Newcastle (5f) where he was seventh of 14 runners. Is very capable off this mark so he has to be respected here.
Was a winner in France four starts ago but has been well held in his three appearances in the UK since then, including latest over this C&D where he was seventh of 10. Has been eased 3lb in the weights but others appeal more.
Scored over this trip at Ayr back in June but has been unable to add to his tally since. He did run well last time at Newcastle (5f) as he was third of 14 runners. Remains off the same mark. Blinkers are on for the first time. One to think about.
