Form & Verdict
Won at 7f and over C&D (good to soft) in 2021; below best in first two 6f runs this year but seemed to appreciate the return to this trip when winning a shade cosily at Hamilton in July (good to firm); excused latest defeat over 1m; competitive back at 6f.

Form & Verdict
Made most for two C&D wins last August (good/good to firm) including in this race; had legitimate excuses in early starts this year but was back to best when only just losing out over C&D 13 days ago; soft ground is a query.

Form & Verdict
Dual 5f winner here (soft/heavy) and over 6f elsewhere; had quiet start to the year but has dropped in the weights and did good late work when just behind Quercus over C&D recently (good to firm); bang there.

Form & Verdict
Close with Ginato on C&D form in September (good to soft) and had won on soft at Thirsk the previous month; mostly in good form in defeat this year and although he slacked off at Redcar last week (favourite) the return to slower ground can suit; yard saddled Quercus to win this last year.

Form & Verdict
Has gone close several times on AW in 2022; less convincing on turf and never in the action behind Quercus over C&D recently but he won on good to soft here in September and is 1lb lower here; not dismissed.
