His sole success came on the AW at Kempton (1m4f) in 2018. He has gone close to victory on a number of occasions this year though, including on his latest attempt when he was second of four at Kempton (2m) on the Polytrack. Leading contender.
Has not won since August 2017, however, he has now fallen down the weights to a workable mark. He came home fourth of nine on his latest outing at Southwell (2m½f) on the AW. Worth respecting.
Has only appeared twice so far this year where he has been well held on both occasions. His latest start was over hurdles at Exeter (2m5½f) where he was fifth of 10. Down to a more favourable mark now but others are preferred.
Is 0-11 on turf but he has won three times on the AW, with his latest success coming back in June at Southwell (2m). He has hit the frame on his last two runs, including when he was third of nine at Southwell (2m½f) last time. One for the shortlist.
Dual-purpose gelding who has been in good form across both codes as he has notched up three consecutive wins recently. His latest success came in a handicap hurdle at Roscommon (2m7½f). Still looks to be off a workable mark on the Flat. Big player.
Was successful on the AW at Newcastle (2m½f) last year but has not been close to adding to his tally in 2019. He finished sixth of 12 last time at Newcastle (2m½f) after going off at 50/1. Hard to fancy on the evidence of recent form.
Scored over hurdles at Market Rasen (2m4½f) back in April but she is still a maiden on the Flat. She was fourth of 11 at Bath (2m1f) on her latest appearance. She is 12lb out of the handicap here so she has it all to do.
