Front-runner; made all in a C&D handicap last September off 3lb lower; weakened only late on here 17 days ago on his reappearance and could last longer today; this doesn't look overloaded with pace but he'll still need a career best to come out on top.

Good record at this track and also on slow ground; looked as good as ever in the spring, winning over C&D and at Ascot; tired late on in a much warmer race at Ascot two weeks ago; strong claims under these conditions.

Held on narrowly from Silky Wilkie at Bath (off 3lb lower) a fortnight ago, taking record on heavy going to 2-2; doesn't necessarily need ground that deep; likely player provided he remains in similar form.

Prominent racer; now 2lb lower than for his Chelmsford win in November (5f); mixed bag since, including when only seventh at Doncaster two weeks ago (had run well in the corresponding race in 2023); tough task trying to dominate this field but he's 1-1 on heavy ground and also goes well on soft.

Consistency not a strength in the last year but he showed a fire still burned when winning at Southwell in January; well beaten into third at Chelmsford three weeks ago; 6f winner here in 2020; not ruled out now dropped in class off his lower turf mark.

Needs to put last month's poor AW run behind him (restless in stalls beforehand and never travelling in race) but his front-running second at Windsor (5f, soft) two starts ago was a good effort and today's faster ground will also suit.

Handy sort who has dropped 9lb since returning in April and only found one too good at Windsor (5f, soft) 11 days ago; races off the same mark and well drawn, but he is just 2-28 since arriving from France so may again find one or two too good.

Reliable enough but hard to win with; below his best the last twice though and unlikely to get a soft time of things up front here.
