Form & Verdict
Seems to stay 1m1f; sole win came in 2020 but currently in decent form and went desperately close at Ayr (1m, good) last week having pulled his way to the front at halfway, soon went clear and remained there until running out of steam near the finish (nabbed on the line); big chance off same mark, especially if settling better.

Form & Verdict
Not solid on this year's form (clear best effort in AW selling handicap) and he's 0-14 on turf; however, ran well (close fourth) off 5lb higher over C&D last July and is interesting on that effort.

Form & Verdict
In decent form this term and was better than the bare result last time; scored under Brandon Wilkie at Beverley (1m2f, good) last summer and is now just 1lb higher; possibilities, despite having a modest strike-rate.

Won this last year on heavy ground, one of four C&D victories; hasn't been as good this season but is handicapped accordingly and again gave her running here last Tuesday; could probably have done without the drying weather.

Opened his account at Ayr (7f, heavy) last October; below-par sixth in a couple of Hamilton contests (6f/1m) this term; not in the best of form currently and this trip is another question mark.

Form & Verdict
Has a record of 2-3 at Carlisle, the wins gained off higher marks over 1m in 2021 and 2022; the way she shaped at Hamilton (1m) two weeks ago suggests she'll be suited by this extra furlong; respected back here.

Dual C&D winner (from marks in the mid 50s); started off the turf season reasonably well - placed on three occasions - but hasn't been quite so sharp in more recent times, including when finishing sixth of 11 (behind Elettaria) in first-time cheekpieces at Beverley last time.

10yo who hasn't won for ages but his last five victories came over about 1m2f and he was tackling that trip for the first time since January 2023 when an unlucky fifth of seven in a C&D classified last time (keeping on when denied clear run close home); could be involved.
