Got off the mark at the seventh attempt at Kemtpton (1m4f) in a similar event last Saturday, where he was all out to hold on after going clear. Didn't run badly over this C&D three runs back and has to be respected.
Another front-runner who won over C&D nine days ago in an identical contest. Has never won two on the bounce and is more exposed than some but evidently in good heart and likely to make a bold bid.
Has been disappointing in all five starts since winning at Southwell (1m) in December 2018. Beaten 14L and 28L on his two runs since a 259-day break and hard to be enthusiastic on that evidence.
Ran well on two of her last three outings here, winning over 1m before going down by ¾L to Cat Royale over C&D last week. Hasn't had too many races for a mare her age and has place claims once again.
Winner over 1m here in October 2018 and his form was a mixed bag last year. Is 6lb better for a 3L third over C&D with Cat Royale last week but his record of 0-17 over 1m1f or further is a cause for concern. Others more persuasive.
Godolphin cast-off; joined this trainer for £6,000 in October 2018. Made his handicap debut at Wolverhampton (1m½f) last month when eighth, beaten 5½L and further improvement is required again, for all he is unexposed.
Maiden after 13 starts. Ran creditably when third on stable debut two runs ago at Kempton (1m) but was still beaten 7¼L. Disappointing again over C&D shortly afterwards and others are preferred.
One win in 27 starts (over C&D). One or two bits form last year that would entitle him to some sort of chance but hasn't got a good record when fresh and, back from a 151-day layoff, is best watched unless there is market positivity.
Won off a mark of 59 in July 2018 but has mostly been on the downgrade since then. Beaten 64L on his last two runs, both over hurdles, and needs to show some signs of a revival now back on the level.
Showed precious little on her first three starts and that didn't change when making her handicap debut over C&D seven weeks ago, beating just two home and being 17½L adrift.
Had failed to beat any rival home in first three starts and not much better when eighth of ten here (7f) last month in a classified event. Upped in trip but faces a tough task once more.
Posted a career best effort at Kempton (1m4f) last Saturday behind Capricorn Prince when finishing fifth, beaten 5L, despite being too keen as a result of her saddle slipping. Only had seven starts and potential for a little improvement.
