Difficult to fancy at present given the manner of the defeats he has suffered the last thrice, including over C&D last time out. Not seen since May, so she will need to be fit enough on this comeback run. Best to oppose.
Regular visitor to this track who is a four-time C&D winner. Return to AW should suit after he was well-beaten at Nottingham (5f; soft) most recently. 3lb above his last winning mark, but he has scored off higher in the past.
Broke maiden tag at the fifth attempt over 6f here last time out with a strong-staying performance. Drops back to 5f for the first time, and must hold an excellent chance on just his second handicap start.
Yet to register a win this season, and he is subsequently 15lb below his last winning mark. This contest represents a drop in class though (never ran in a class 5), so he could post a much improved performance.
C&D winner who had been enjoying a productive time of things prior to finishing in midfield at Bath (5f; soft) last month. Ground conditions may have been a possible excuse then, so he has to be worth another chance.
Narrowly behind Ebitda at Nottingham (5f; heavy) when last seen, but is expected to reverse that form given his more consistent profile. Went awfully close at Leicester (6f; heavy) the time before that, but others currently seem more compelling.
0-7 on the AW. Has only had the four starts this season, and was slightly more encouraging the last twice, when dropped in class. Cannot be recommended as a win prospect, but likely she will be thereabouts.
Last Year's Winner
Requited (15/8), Royal Sands (11/4), Private Matter (11/2), Zapper Cass (7/1), Samovar (8/1), Ebitda (22/1), Eternal Sun (22/1)
