Two wins include one here and he returned to form when a front-running second at Lingfield (7f, good to firm) when perhaps going off a bit too fast; Connor Planas looks a good booking.

Two 7f wins last summer, including off 4lb higher; inconsistent this year, best effort when going close at Brighton in May; nicely treated if he turns up in top form.

Enhanced his excellent record at Brighton when not far away there 18 days ago; also runs this track well and current mark is very manageable.

Often leads; one of his three 7f wins came on soft (the others on good to firm) but questionable whether testing ground brings out the best in him and others more likely to be suited by the conditions.

Multiple winner over shorter, the last success coming off this mark at Chepstow last July (7f, good to soft); stays 1m but he's fully exposed and could prove vulnerable back from a break.

Chepstow regular who won there in July and has been a fair fourth there the last twice; however, he needs something extra if he's to win this and it remains to be seen how he'll fare away from his favourite course.

Has some fairly useful form on his CV but was largely disappointing for Nikki Evans last summer and has finished well down the field on both starts for new stable this year (7f/1m); revival needed.

Running well on slow turf this autumn, winning at Beverley (7.5f) in September and finishing second at Doncaster last month (7f, heavy); three AW runs came when qualifying for a mark and there's no obvious reason why he wouldn't prove as effective on this surface in time.
