Scored at Hamilton (1m5f) in June and back on song of late, just over 2l seventh of 12 at Newcastle (1m4f) 24 days ago; possibilities.

Form & Verdict

1m4f winner last year who should be better for reappearance run in a competitive handicap at Musselburgh; should step up on that effort, though ideally suited by having a decent pace to aim at.

Form & Verdict

AW winner on final start last year (only run for Brian Ellison) and, although he had the run of the race, he bolted up at Musselburgh on reappearance last month; 11lb higher and down in trip but almost certainly capable of better still.

C&D winner last October on sole run for Brian Ellison and followed up when easily winning on stable debut at Musselburgh (2m) in May; having gone up 11lb he was only third of four at Hamilton last time but that slowly run 1m5f was against him and he's not discounted now back up in trip.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner at both Musselburgh/Carlisle and stepped up on previous efforts this season when winning at the Cumbrian venue last time; penalty to carry but, although she will be 2lb lower in future, she can't be ruled out.
