In the frame in all four visits here, so the return to this surface should suit having not shown much in four starts on turf since returning in June from four months off; may need a stiffer test than this now, though.

Triple course winner (8.6f/9.4f), who has finished placed at Southwell (1m) in his last two runs; seems as good as ever as a 6yo and he still looks feasibly treated; on the shortlist.

Won her first two handicaps at Newcastle (1m, Tapeta) and Ffos Las (7.4f, good to soft) in August; beaten only just over a length into third of 11 in her hat-trick bid at Kempton (7f, Polytrack) 15 days ago and the step back up in trip should suit, but the outside stall makes things tricky.

Tough sort who was placed in four consecutive starts off similar marks on the AW late last year prior to a lesser performance in an amateur riders' event at Wolverhampton (8.5f, Tapeta); could bounce back, but evidence suggests that a sharp 1m like this may be an insufficient test for him.

Bids for a hat-trick after two wins on turf at Bath (1m, good) and has been raised 4lb since latest; won over C&D a year ago, so no questions over the surface and he's likely to make an impact if getting the strong pace he needs.

A near-miss and two wins over 1m here late last summer and is back on his last winning mark; proved this longer trip within range on the AW when last seen two months ago and he's hard to knock out of the equation.

Recent efforts leave plenty to be desired but he ran well off higher marks on a couple of occasions on turf during the summer and is 2lb lower than when winning a nursery over C&D last November; worth keeping an eye on with a visor now given a go.

Again blew the start but Mia Nicholls (on board for the first time) didn't panic and they did well to score given how slowly the race was run over C&D last week; races off just 3lb higher, but jockey claims 2lb less than last week; key player.
