Prevailed over this C&D on her opening start of the year back in March but has not followed it up since. She did hit the frame last time at Chester (1m2½f) when she finished third of 12. Is now 2lb below her last winning mark. Must be respected.
Remains a maiden after 13 starts. His form since switching yards has not improved as he has been well held on his three appearances, including when he was ninth of 13 at Kempton (1m4f). Has been eased 4lb but others are preferred.
Dual-purpose gelding who is a winner in France but has yet to score since moving to the UK. He was third of six on his latest start in a 2m handicap hurdle at Fakenham. Needs to improve on his return to the Flat.
Is still looking for her first win after three starts. Produced her best run to date last time at Kempton (1m4f) when she was third of 11. Set for handicap debut here and is up in trip again. One to consider.
Broke his maiden at the eighth attempt last time when he scored at this course over 1m4f. He finished the race strongly which suggests this step up in trip will not be a problem. Has been raised 9lb. Leading contender.
0-7 so far in her career but she came close to her opening success on her latest start at Brighton (1m4f) as she was second of 11 runners. Remains off the same mark here. One for the shortlist.
Scored for the second time on her last outing at Yarmouth (1m4f) where she was on the right side of a close finish. Taking a big step up in trip now on her return to the AW surface. Not to be discounted.
Prevailed in a bumper at Kelso (2m) on his opening career appearance but has yet to score on the Flat. He was a long way off the winner when he was fifth of 11 at Bath (2m1f) last month. Dropping down in trip. Best to watch.
A C&D winner here, however, his form recently has been disappointing. He could only finish seventh of 12 over this C&D last time out. Has been eased 2lb, however, he is hard to fancy on latest evidence.
Dual-purpose gelding who is 0-18. Returns to the Flat here following a spell over hurdles, with his latest effort coming at Stratford over the extended 2m trip where he was fifth of eight. Visor is on for the first time. Others appeal more.
Has been successful twice over hurdles this year. Was a long way behind on his last appearance on the Flat when he was eighth of 12 at Southwell (1m4f). Needs to improve in this code to be in the mix.
Is still looking for her first success after 10 appearances. She was disappointing last time at Kempton (2m) as she came home eighth of 14 after going off at 100/1. Much more is needed to gain her opening victory.
