Fine strike-rate on AW and is the pick of these weights; below best over 1m at Kempton last time but better than the bare facts of that run implies and the one to beat here.

Fine record on AW and she wasn't far off her very best when chasing home Crossing The Line in a 7f Chelmsford handicap last month; not open to the same degree of improvement as that rival, though, and has work to do with Castle Hill Cassie on C&D form from November.

Still on the up; two decent handicap wins over 7f this year, and runner-up over just shy of this trip at York latest; nudged up another 2lb but likely to go well; suited by good and soft ground.

Back to winning ways at York in June and, although below best at that course on penultimate start, was a fine second to Cold Stare at Haydock last time; should run well again.

Infrequent winner but placed in four of six AW starts, including when third over C&D last month; repeat of that would see him bang there but he wasn't in the same form at Ascot 13 days ago.

C&D winner off 4lb lower in September and sequence of placed efforts after that including when chasing home Keyser Soze here on penultimate run; form dipped last time but was forced wide switched to patient tactics on that step back up to 1m; now returns to his best trip and should still have some room to manoeuvre off this mark; respected.
