Age: 6|  Weight: 10-7  |  J: Miss H Welch |  T: Alexandra Dunn|  OR: 79|  D

All four career wins have come on AW and is 0-5 on turf. Has run respectably on occasions though but seems best served by a sound surface so any rain would be a concern.

Age: 4|  Weight: 10-6  |  J: Miss S L Bowen |  T: Miss J Feilden|  OR: 78|  BF|  C|  D

Been in fine form this year and completed hat-trick with six-length win over 1m4f at Doncaster in July. Favourite but unplaced at Newcastle AW last time off revised mark and 1lb drop may not be enough to see him resume winning ways.

Age: 5|  Weight: 10-4  |  J: Ms B Hampson |  T: Mrs H Main|  OR: 76|  C

Held on well to win Goodwood 1m3f handicap penultimate outing but made no impression in Carlisle Bell off 2lb higher last time. Eased 1lb and decent rider on board so not impossible he might bounce back.

Age: 4|  Weight: 10-3  |  J: Miss E Easterby |  T: T D Easterby|  OR: 75|  D

Arrives in fine form after wins at Pontefract and at Carlisle last time under good lady amateur. 6lb rise makes life much tougher but is clearly in fine fettle and has good chance of being in the mix again.

Age: 7|  Weight: 10-0  |  J: Miss Jessica Llewellyn |  T: B J Llewellyn|  OR: 72|  C|  D

Fair third over hurdles last time having won at Epsom previous start under this jockey. 3lb higher this time but the partnership seems to work so may not be far away.

Age: 3|  Weight: 9-11  |  J: Miss Claudia Metaireau |  T: A M Balding|  OR: 78|  C

First-time cheekpieces applied on first start since recent gelding operation. Unexposed in handicaps as only previous such start came in heavy ground. Won on debut here over a mile last year so not out of it for top yard.

Age: 6|  Weight: 9-9  |  J: Miss Becky Smith |  T: Ian Williams|  OR: 67

12-race maiden who has been very lightly raced in recent years and appears to have had his share of problems. Never at the race on reappearance last month when last of seven at Sandown so experienced rider will haveher work cut out.

Age: 6|  Weight: 9-5  |  J: Miss S Brotherton |  T: M Appleby|  OR: 63|  D

Top lady amateur rider has won this five times in the last 10 years for five different yards. Stays up to 1m6f but won over 1m1f at Hamilton in June for Jim Goldie. Claimed after unplaced in Redcar seller last time. Debut for new yard.



Gas Monkey (5/2), Rake's Progress (9/2), Breathable (9/2), Landa Beach (6/1), Nabhan (8/1), Sea Sovereign (8/1), Restive (10/1), Cry Wolf (10/1)

With his rider's remarkable record of 5-10 wins in this race in the last decade Restive has to be taken very seriously on debut for his new connections, but slight preference is for the hat-trick seeking BREATHABLE who is in great shape and also has a talented rider to help his cause. Landa Beach is a potential improver returning from a gelding operation and is unexposed, while Nabhan and Gas Monkey cannot be ruled out having both had their moments this term.
