Better than ever this year, and he took his turf record to 5-15 with a battling neck success at Leicester (6f, soft) two weeks ago; only 3lb higher here and may not have reached his ceiling just yet; key player.

Won this race in a big field 12 months ago; 8lb higher today but he's earned the rise with some improved efforts and he made an encouraging reappearance when second of 12 at Musselburgh (7f) two weeks ago; handles good to soft ground and placed early in career on his only outing on soft; should go well again with Billy Loughnane keeping the ride.

Last season's sole success came over 7f on fast ground at Goodwood; fully effective on soft too but it's been a while since his last run over 5f and others look more appealing despite his solid record fresh and a good handicap mark to exploit.

6f specialist who has done well since joining current yard, posting a career-best effort when delivered late to score at Thirsk (soft) last Saturday; nudged up 4lb but should remain competitive and conditions will again be ideal; high on the list.

Had tumbled in the weights prior to finishing runner-up behind Ecclesiastical over C&D two weeks ago on just his second run for Michael Attwater; wide draw not ideal tonight but he could be dangerous if he gets a good pace and some luck.

8 yo Gelding

Form & Verdict

Had a subdued domestic campaign in 2022, unplaced all five starts, and he left George Baker for just £1,500 in March; it's possible he'll be revived by a change of stable, and he's well treated on the pick of his form, but 6f is probably a bare minimum for him and he's unproven in the mud.

Form & Verdict

Better on AW than turf but his current mark reflects that and he wasn't disgraced when a never-nearer fifth of 11 over 5f here (good) ten days ago; should be suited by returning to 6f and could have a say if handling this forecast slower ground (below par on two previous runs on soft).

Gained breakthrough win at Southwell (6f, AW) last summer and wasn't beaten far when ninth of ten at Lingfield on reappearance; probably needs a career best to return to winning ways, and soft or heavy ground is an unknown, but he's low mileage and impossible to rule out.
