J: Richard Kingscote

T: Charlie Fellowes

Triple Tapeta winner who has been successful three times this year and ran a career-best when second of 12 in a 0-105 handicap at Newcastle (12.4f) three weeks ago; even that will need improving upon a fair bit if she is to make an impact in this company, though.

A fairly useful scorer on the AW but he's winless since 2021 and has been off the track since coming in a creditable eighth in the Chester Cup in May; needs to hit the ground running on his return.
