On a losing run and disappointing that he hasn't kicked on from a good second on AW in February; would be a danger to all if recapturing that form off his reduced mark.

Not had many chances on soft ground but he was placed in the Group 3 Cornwallis on it as a 2yo; ran a stormer behind a rapid improver at Newcastle on seasonal return in February but the two runs since have been less persuasive, albeit a bit better than the tenth of 14 would suggest in a messy Newmarket sprint two weeks ago; back down in grade and he's considered.

Just 1-26 on turf but he has run well over C&D in the past and his return to action two weeks ago wasn't devoid of promise; capable of a big run off this mark.

Won the 3yo Dash on Derby Day last season off a 1lb higher mark (5f, good to firm); the wheels came off afterwards but he had a wind op in October and his reappearance here two weeks ago was more encouraging than the distance beaten would suggest; getting back on faster ground a major positive and a big run would be no surprise.

Defied a wide draw in a 5f handicap at Chester last September (good to soft) and this mark looks in range on that evidence; last month's reappearance should have sharpened him up; untested on faster than good but retains some potential.

Has often made the running, so has the option of sticking to the far side (can be an advantage on slow ground), but it's hard to know where stall 1 leaves him otherwise; may need this anyway back from seven months off.

Joined Nigel Tinkler with a reduced mark and he took advantage in a productive 2023 campaign, winning 5f handicaps at Ayr, here and Redcar; stall 1 and a 224-day absence could prove stumbling blocks this afternoon.

Smart 2yo; faced a losing battle with the handicapper at three and had a quiet season for Paul Midgley last year; new yard able to exploit a lowly mark, with 5f wins at Ayr and Thirsk followed by a near miss at Haydock last month; came up short in a hot York sprint two weeks ago but this should be more to his taste.

Needs to step up on his reappearance here two weeks ago but that was the case on his second run last year and he's well treated on his 2023 best; faster ground in his favour too; should go well.

Hit hard by the handicapper for a wide-margin Beverley win last May (5f, soft) but now just 1lb higher; effective on faster ground, as when chasing home Tatterstall at Epsom last June (7lb better off with that rival today); ended up caught wider than ideal at Beverley on her reappearance last month; better expected today.

Impressive winner of a C&D handicap on soft ground last May; held her own in stronger company afterwards and she begins this campaign off a fair mark; won on her seasonal debut as a 2yo and although only seventh on last year's return, it was a cracking effort from a bad draw; interesting.

Won in first-time blinkers at Hamilton (6f, good to firm) in June and more new headgear (visor) did the trick at Carlisle last time when nicely on top in the finish; capable of holding his form but he's off a career-high mark after going up 5lb.
