There have been signs that CAPTAIN JAMESON (nap) is poised to strike and he can come out on top. Neola will be a danger if it rains.
J: Adam Kirby
T: Clive Cox
Sole victory came in a three-runner contest and his patchy profile continued with a poor fourth at Nottingham. He was beaten five lengths and needs to leave that effort well behind, with the yard not quite at their peak.
Chance on best form but needs to leave latest effort behind him
J: Jason Watson
T: John Quinn
Another who wouldn't mind the rain, though he does have form on better surfaces. He was too keen early at Thirsk last week and must settle better, if doing so, he has strong claims on his prior consistent form.
Much better than the result at Thirsk last week; big player if the rain falls
Lucky Lucky Man
J: Tony Hamilton
T: Richard Fahey
Career best effort to win a small-field Newcastle handicap in July, driven clear by a length. That wasn't the strongest of contests and a three-pound rise takes him back onto what looks a difficult mark on past form.
Career best when scoring at Newcastle 15 days ago; 3lb rise demands further progress
J: David Probert
T: Andrew Balding
Off the mark at the eighth attempt with a novice win at Windsor, second in a Newmarket handicap thereafter. His latest run at Bath was disappointing, with no obvious excuses that day. Down in grade but a shade risky.
Off the mark in blinkers at Windsor in June; 2nd next time a good effort; below par latest
J: Oisin Murphy
T: James Tate
Six-race maiden, non-runner at Haydock yesterday. He was placed off three pounds lower at Haydock two starts ago, excuses for his latest outing. Chances on that, but any rain would be a very big negative.
Runner-up twice at Haydock this year; excuse latest
J: Jimmy Quinn
T: David Elsworth
Sole victory came as a two-year-old in novice company, with that on softer ground. She's been in fair form of late in firmer ground handicaps, though unable to quite threaten. Needs to pull out a little bit extra.
Soft-ground winner at 2; string of good runs in defeat this year; in the mix again
Our Man In Havana
J: Jane Elliott
T: Richard Price
Sits six pounds below his last winning mark, though that is for good reason. He's likely to strip fitter for his latest run at Wolverhampton, but he didn't shape well enough that day to make him appealing here.
On good mark and sharper for latest run; others more appealing in this field
T: Mick Channon
