Form & Verdict
Had to wait for a gap to appear before keeping on strongly to open account over C&D (good) last month, his ninth start; posted another good effort when fourth at York (1m4f, good to firm) soon afterwards and may yet have a bigger performance in him.

Form & Verdict
Began season with C&D (soft) novice win in April and was creditable third in Chester handicap over slightly further in May; below that form lately but in more competitive races than this; might be dangerous if allowed to dominate.

Form & Verdict
Still a maiden after ten starts but has made the frame in six of her seven handicaps this season, most recently when second at Thirsk (1m4f, good to soft) nine days ago, and it's reasonable to expect another good run here.

Form & Verdict
Soundly beaten on first two appearances but, following a wind op, shaped with considerably more promise when fifth in Chelmsford novice (1m2f, AW) last month; has very good middle-distance pedigree and ought to have a fair bit more improvement to come in handicaps.

Form & Verdict
Just a respectable fifth on last month's handicap debut at York (10.3f, good to firm) but today's race looks less competitive and he's 2lb lower this time; could have untapped potential over 1m4f; must be considered.
