Stratford juvenile hurdle winner for Dr Richard Newland in 2018. Joined current yard in October and has run creditably last two starts at up to 1m6f. Easing in the weights but has stamina to prove at this trip.
Stable stalwart well into veteran stage. Hasn't won since landing Listed handicap at York in 2014. Run creditably on three of last five starts without success but it would be a surprise if he were to break long losing run here.
Jockey has 13% strike rate for this yard and was on board when winning over C&D in December 2017. Just two runs since then and not seen for 658 days. Fitness has to be taken on trust but worth a market check.
Four wins between 1m4f-2m last coming at Epsom in July 2018. Into veteran stage now but ran best race for some time when third at Wolverhampton recently and repeat of that would give him a squeak off 1lb lower.
Veteran mare who has won six races but never beyond 1m5f. Hlaf-length second at Bath 1m6f in August. Kept on one pace when fifth over 1m6f latest at Wolverhampton and trip has to be a concern.
Maiden who has yet to reach a place in five starts so far but belied her odds when fourth on handicap bow over C&D in November off 1lb higher mark. Failed to build on that at Newcastle last time but return here may help her prospects.
Maiden who has run 19 times under both codes without success. Not beaten too far on all previous attempts on AW but steps up in trip now and has a bit to prove. Yard without a Flat winner for more than four years.
Eight-race maiden but has been placed on three of last five outings and stayed on well enough over 1m6f at Wolverhampton last time to suggest he's worth a try now at 2m. Should be there or thereabouts.
Only win came over C&D in September off 3lb lower mark for Sir Mark Prescott. Mixed messages in two starts so far for current handler and has a bit to prove. First-time blinkers employed following lethargic latest run.
Four career wins at up to 1m4f. Has appeared to just about see it out over this trip in the past but seems vulnerable and will do well to reach the frame on recent evidence.
