Nine-time AW winner who has been knocking on the door here in his last two runs and is only 1lb higher than for his near miss over C&D last Monday; should make another bold bid and he's a strong contender.

Veteran with two course wins (8.6f/9.4f) this year but his form nosedived here last Saturday and he needs to bounce back after that 10l defeat; yard also runs King Of York and Visibility.

Form & Verdict
Dual-purpose performer who is not easy to predict but he recorded his eighth career win when scoring at Windsor (11.4f, heavy) in October; 5lb higher on his return but he still looks feasibly treated and has claims if he can pick up where he left off.

Form & Verdict
Record of 1-25 and his sole win came over hurdles; ran well to finish third at Lingfield (1m2f, Polytrack) last month but he has a patchy profile and was beaten 8l at Chelmsford last time; others are more convincing.

Form & Verdict
His sole win came over 2m here in 2021 and he's struggled at massive prices in two hurdle runs for his current yard; had form at this sort of trip in Jersey last summer but he has a tough draw back on the Flat and is 4lb out of the weights; probably best watched.

0-9; close fourth over 8.6f at Wolverhampton in December but not much to show for his last two runs, latterly finishing behind Tio Mio; perhaps the new cheekpieces will give him a lift.

Didn't really fire in her final two runs last year but she won back-to-back races at Newcastle (1m) and here (8.6f) in the autumn; looks interesting on that form and her last win was under Paddy Barlow; dangerous back from a short break.

Won consecutive races at Newcastle and over C&D in the autumn; solid effort in defeat next time but she drew stumps at Lingfield 11 days ago and first-time cheekpieces are an unknown factor.

J: Alex Fielding

Often leads but suited by patient tactics when winning at Newcastle and, with plenty to spare, at Wolverhampton (both about 1m); was stunned by 25-1 shot Finn Russell there since but lost little in defeat; first experience of Polytrack today but should be close between them again.
