This represents a stiffer test for GIANT SPARK but he's been a big improver this summer and there could well be more in the tank. He can defy a short absence and a 10lb hike in the weights at the main expense of More Beau and Mon Brav.[Paul Smith]

Form taken off this year, winning maiden handicap at Redcar by 9l and, after a second at Hamilton, he resumed winning ways with comfortable success at Nottingham in early July; two-month absence to overcome and now 10lb higher but could well have more in the locker.

Missed 2015 but series of good runs in defeat this year; needs a bit more if he's to gain a second career success but possible the application of a visor could help.

A couple of 6f wins this summer and as good as ever when third over 7f on the AW last week; might find a couple of these better treated though.

Not the force of old and no win since 2013 but he's run some fair races in defeat off higher marks this year; well held at Redcar four weeks ago though and needs to bounce back to take this; non-runner Haydock Friday.

No problem with conditions and has slipped to a handy mark after some lesser efforts; Doncaster third in May came off 4lb higher though and capable if getting a good pace to aim at.

Both wins for Roger Varian came on the AW but does have some form on turf; hasn't been at best this year though and needs change of scenery to revive her (sold for 19,000gns in July).

Won two of his last four starts but disappointing effort at Hamilton off this mark five weeks ago; suspicion he'll prove vulnerable off this mark once more.
