T: Brian O’Rourke

Versatile trip-wise and was successful off 3lb lower here (1m) in November but he refused to race back at this track ten days ago; overall record now stands at 1-17 and he comes with risks attached.

1m course winner last November, when 3lb lower; disappointed next time at Chelmsford but back in better form in three further starts; stays 1m4f; no surprise if she is in the shake-up.

Off the mark at Kempton (1m) last month; went close over 9.4f at Wolverhampton on penultimate start and runner-up at Southwell on latest when attempting 1m4f for the first time; should be seriously involved.

12th attempt when off the mark at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) last month; went close over 9.4f at Wolverhampton (Tapeta) two weeks ago but five attempts have failed to prove her stamina at 1m2f/1m3f, let alone 1m4f.

25-1 when off the mark at the 12th attempt at Kempton (1m, Polytrack) last month, but didn't back it up when tenth of 13 at Chelmsford (1m2f, Polytrack) last time; not quite sure what to expect and her stamina for this sort of test remains unproven.

Missed a chunk of her career and regressed on turf this year, but sprung a surprise on her Polytrack debut (1m) ten days ago; is only 3lb higher under the penalty and, while still to prove her stamina, could yet be capable of better on this surface.

Ten-race maiden; placed a couple of times over 1m on turf this season, including in a Redcar seller 23 days ago; improvement will be needed if she is to make a winning AW debut.

J: Hannah Fraser

Not at the top of her game the last twice but 1m2f may not have been ideal most recently and her handicap third at Bath (1m) in July puts her in the picture today; can't be ruled out in this weak race.
