Ran as well as could be expected over C&D last month on return to action on his first run following a 497 day break. Accomplished pilot in the plate currently sat in joint second place in the Lady jockeys Flat championship.
Distance winner. Quickly back down to a winning mark following three defeats over similar trips since winning a Leicester handicap in June. Adept rider, winner of one of her seven rides this year.
Lightly raced son of New Approach who has been well beaten in a couple of starts since returning to the track following a 837 day lay-off.
Not out of the first two in seven of her eight starts for current connections since July. Dynamic jockey in the saddle, winner over hurdles at Hereford on Monday and is currently joint second in the Lady jockeys Flat championship.
Career best effort when finishing fourth of 11 beaten 1¼L behind Aegeus in a Newcastle 1m maiden on the AW last month. Capable of a bold bid if holding his form.
Completed a hat-trick of wins when landing a Doncaster handicap over a similar trip off a 7lb lower mark last month following wins at Ayr and Bath. Another bold effort likely but now 17lb higher than first win.
Terrific return over C&D. Winner of four of his seven starts over the combination with two of those successes coming in the first nine days of last month. Rider better known for her National Hunt exploits who is one from two Flat mounts this term.
Recorded the third win of his career on his first start of the campaign at Carlisle in June over 1m3f off a 1lb lower mark. Well held in a number of starts since and has plenty to prove in this contest.
Early season progress appears to have leveled out a little in a couple of disappointing efforts recently. Leading ladies jockey, with over 40 career wins to her name in the last five years but is only three from 49 rides this term.
Mixed messages in a number of starts over the summer. Well beaten and never a factor on most recent run at Doncaster last month and overall profile suggests that he is worth taking on again.
Won for the third time this term when he won at Hamilton on soft ground over 1m1f off a 2lb lower mark. Beaten since on turf and the AW at Wolverhampton. Talented pilot in the saddle currently co-third in the Lady jockeys Flat championship.
Winner of two of his 15 Flat starts on turf. Not seen since finishing last of seven beaten 20L on the AW at Southwell in January. Known as a somewhat quirky individual, although he does also possess a reasonable amount of ability.
Seven-race maiden. Appeared to be improving towards the end of her time in Ireland. Able rider in the saddle, winner of two of her 13 rides this term in the Lady jockeys Flat championship.
Without a win in four career starts and tailed off finishing last of six beaten 65L when last seen over hurdles at Sandown in December. Talented pilot in the plate, currently leading the Lady jockeys Flat championship with six wins on the board.
Solid and consistent type, winner over C&D. Efficient jockey takes the reins, winner of 15 races in her career and boasts a win and two place efforts from 11 rides on the gelding.
Regressive sort in a number of starts toward the end of his time with trainer Tom Tate. Last of 13 on stable debut last month. First time cheekpieces unlikely to bring about the required amount of improvement needed to play a role here.
