Waarif is due to go up 5lb from tomorrow and is the obvious starting point, but he only has a maiden win to his name, can miss the break and may not be suited by the further drop in distance. The draw shouldn't be an issue this time for the lightly raced Smugglers Creek, who made all for his Dundalk win, while Mansfield is a danger to all if settling better, but a competitive handicap can go to TOMMY G, who all but held on over 5f here last week and won't mind the return to this trip.[Graham Wheldon]

Can miss the kick but better on that front lately and only nabbed on the line here early last week; due to go up 5lb from tomorrow and obvious chance if it falls right but isn't the easiest and the further drop in trip maybe not ideal (stays 1m2f).

Ex-Godolphin gelding who'd tumbled down the weights before attracting good support in a first-time hood early last month; beaten that day and again since at odds-on, when pulling too hard, and this is stronger off 3lb higher; needs to settle.

Just a single win to his name (off 5lb lower late last summer) but consistent and running well enough here since; handicapper knows where he is, though, and this a touch stronger if anything.

Valid excuses twice here before all but landing a gamble over 5f last week, when having no problem with the drop in trip; quite happy over tonight's distance, though, due to go up 1lb from tomorrow and high on the shortlist.

Three wins, and most racing, come over 1m and this company is stronger than he's used to; well suited by the Polytrack round Chelmsford and he'll need a career best if he's to follow up off a 4lb higher mark.
