Front-runner who has gained three of his four wins over C&D, the latest an easy 4l success in April; this will be tougher from a 6lb higher mark especially with other established trailblazers in the field.

Disappointed at Wolverhampton four weeks ago but she had been running well in defeat beforehand; stamina for this trip not yet assured and a tongue tie needs to have a positive effect.

Five wins last year, two of them at this track over the extended 1m (stays 1m2f); placed on her last three starts and Tommie Jakes' 7lb claim will be an asset today; unlikely to be too far away.

Lightly-raced 3yo; has won two of his three starts, all on the AW, last time making hard work of landing odds of 2-11 in a 6f Wolverhampton novice (first run after being gelded, third has since won handicaps off 50 and 55); not obviously well treated on handicap/turf debut but step up to 1m should suit and stable in fine form.

Reappearance win took his AW form figures (6f/7f) to 121; two underwhelming efforts on turf (1m) since; still has something to prove in this sphere and first-time headgear needs to make a difference.

Two AW wins (7f/6f) from first three starts and remains very lightly raced, but he was a 6l fifth of eight on last month's handicap and turf debut at Pontefract (1m, good to firm) and needs to leave that form behind.

Better handicapped on turf than the AW; following a sound run at York last time (1m1f, good to firm), when runner-up to a well-handicapped improver (won next time as well), he is one to consider.
