His sole success came on his third career start at Ripon (7f). His form this year has been largely disappointing, including latest effort which was his first run for his new yard when he was 14th of 15 at Newbury (7f). Down 2lb but needs to improve.
Has been running well recently with two wins from his last five starts. He went close to his opening success on the AW last time at Kempton (6f) as he was second of 12. Remains off the same mark. Leading contender.
Broke his maiden over this C&D three runs ago. Has been unable to follow that up since in two starts. He had just one rival behind him on his latest outing on the AW at Kempton (6f) in a nine runner contest. Will need to find more from this mark.
Is without a win in five starts this year, however, he has come close on a couple of occasions, including when he was third of 10 around this course (1m) two runs back. Set for first outing for his new yard here where he has each-way claims.
Was successful on his penultimate start on the AW at Chelmsford (6f) where he was on the right side of a tight finish in a 11 runner contest. Could only finish eighth of 14 last time at that same track (7f). Others are preferred.
Scored for the first time in his career on the AW at Newcastle (1m4½f). Has only featured twice since then. He was ninth of 12 at Wolverhampton (1m4f) on his latest start. Can't be discounted as he could still be open to improvement.
Recorded success at Newmarket (7f) back in May where he was an impressive 4L winner but has not added to that since. He was fifth of 14 on his latest outing at Chelmford (7f) where he went off as the 11/4 favourite. One to consider.
Prevailed for the first time in his career at Brighton (7f) two runs back where he justified going off as the 15/8 favourite. Came close to following that up on the AW at Kempton (1m) last time as he was second of 11. Big player off that same mark.
Was successful over this C&D on his penultimate start where he got up late into the contest after being given a patient ride. He could only finish eighth of 15 on his latest effort at Chelmsford (1m). Can't discount on his return to this track.
Has scored twice this year, with his latest win coming at Windsor (6f) back in May. He has been well held on his last two starts on the AW at Chelmsford, including when he was sixth of 10 back in October over 6f. Needs to improve on recent form.
Dual-purpose gelding who scored at this course over 1m2f back in January. Has been unsuccessful over obstacles in six starts since. He returned to the Flat on the AW at Chelmsford (1m) last month where he was 10th of 15. Hard to make a case for.
A C&D winner who is without success in 2019 in what has been a busy year for the mare. She was fourth of 15 on her latest attempt at Chelmsford (1m). Has been eased 2lb to a new career low mark so she can't be ignored.
Started her career with back-to-back wins on the turf but has not followed that up since. She has really struggled in three appearances on the AW, including last time at Newcastle (1m4½f) when she was 11th of 14. Needs to improve on this surface.
