Took his chase record to 6-10 with a battling success at Stratford (2m3f, good) last month; 5lb rise to cope with but more worry would be if there was significant rain; good chance if it stays dry.

J: Joe Anderson

Conditions will be borderline as he's ideally suited by good/faster ground; two wins at about 2m4f last summer took his strike-rate over fences to 7-11 but a combination of a career-high mark and good to soft ground contributed to his defeat in the Old Roan at Aintree when last seen in October (under Joe Anderson); others would appear to have more going for them.

Suited by good/firmer; successful under Joe Anderson at Stratford and Worcester the last twice, taking chase record to 7-11; on a career-high mark but can't be dismissed granted ideal ground.

Form & Verdict

Back to her best when winning off 5lb lower at Aintree in May (held up); ground too soft next time and he possibly did too much too soon when third to Hang In There at Stratford latest; could get much closer to that rival but wouldn't want too much rain.

Tailed off in Summer Plate at Market Rasen last month but soft ground was an obvious excuse; won this last year (good) and also on the scoresheet at Aintree (2m4f, good) in May; she's a player now back on better ground.

Now 12lb higher than when close second to Francky Du Berlais in this race last year but posted career-best performance when scoring at Aintree (2m4f, good) in May and is not yet fully exposed; must be considered.

Well beaten at Market Rasen in July when attempting to complete a Summer Plate hat-trick but has run two solid races over hurdles since; likely to be up with the pace and must have a shout back chasing.

Went close at Fakenham in June (2m5f) but not the force of old and well beaten next time; more than two years since he won and others may have more zip than him now.

Prolific winner (mostly at around 2m on good ground) and fine servant to connections over the years; not as good as he was and didn't run very well on latest outing in September, but should be fine over today's trip and his spring form puts him in the mix.

Had rather lost his way this year but was seemingly perked up by wind surgery when scrambling home at Newton Abbot this month; this is much tougher and he's 3lb out of the handicap.

Not the easiest to predict but it was career win number nine when returning from wind surgery with a narrow success over Romanor at Newton Abbot (2m, good; fine over this far); Worcester was underwhelming, for all that he was a shade out of the weights.

Won off this mark last November and has run perfectly well in his latest three outings this summer; usually seen over further so will need a strong pace to bring his stamina into play, best on good ground.
