Arrives on the back of good third in 1m Lingfield handicap 12 days ago, but she's not the most reliable overall and others appeal more.

Form & Verdict
Usually runs over 6f/7f but had too much speed for Ubahha in closing stages at Bath (good) when dropped back to 5f last month; not quite in same form when returned to 6f last time (bled from the nose) but remains unexposed over this trip.

Form & Verdict
Teenager who was a very useful handicapper in his prime; lost out only narrowly off today's mark when dropped to Class 6 on AW last month and wasn't disgraced from a long way out of the handicap at Goodwood recently; must be considered.

Form & Verdict
Off the mark at 23rd attempt, with ready success at Yarmouth (5f, soft) in June; that was only his third run for Michael Appleby and his subsequent second behind Million Reasons at Bath (5f, good) was also a good effort; should go well again.

Unexposed 3yo who made promising seasonal/handicap debut when keeping-on fourth at Windsor (5f, good to firm) in June; disappointing favourite after awkward start there last month but remains of interest.
