Verdict

The front-running GINBAR arrives in decent form and, a C&D winner last year, he could take plenty of catching from his inside draw.

Scored at Catterick in June off this mark, struggling since off inflated marks. Obviously more than capable off the mark, however, and has been given the best draw of all in stall one. Unlikely to be far away.
On his last winning mark and didn't run badly at Thirsk latest; has the best draw

Epsom winner in July off three pounds lower, patchy since, placing on two occasions. Not disgraced at Thirsk last time, though the way he carried his head was disappointing. Drawn widest of all today, likely vulnerable.
Arrives in decent form but has the widest draw to overcome; soft ground would be a concern

Has fallen back onto a very handy mark after three heavy defeats since a win at Southwell in January. Plenty to prove, however, given how disappointing his recent runs have been. Capable on the ground, plenty to take on trust.
Down to a handy mark but out of form last month following a break

Just the nine wins from 128 starts, winning off four pounds lower over the extended five furlongs here in July. Not disgraced when second at Haydock last time and he tends to run his best races at this venue. Each-way contender.

Arrives here hunting for a four-timer, though all those victories have come in lower grades. Made all readily at Hamilton on his latest outing and a ten-pound rise is no surprise. More on his plate today, will have competition for the lead.
Has shot up the weights but for good reason, having readily landed hat-trick last time

Hold-up performer who was a winner off this mark at Haydock in August 2017, never able to challenge after a poor run at Thirsk two weeks ago. Dropped in grade today, live claims if managing to get the splits.
Decent run last time and he's now back down to his last winning mark; could have big say

Hasn't won now for over three years, failing to build on a string of fair efforts when well beaten at Thirsk last time. Would have to be in the equation based on his prior fourth at this venue earlier in the month, but not consistent.

Losing run now stretches back to February 2017, falling to a very dangerous mark due to some mainly disappointing runs this year. Well beaten at Carlisle on his latest outing, a three-pound drop doesn't make him of much appeal.
Hinted earlier in season that his turn may be near but form has since taken a downturn

Arrives here on the back of three very respectable efforts, latterly when third at Newmarket in a tough little contest. Course and distance winner back in September 2017 off three pounds higher, drawn well, obvious claims.
Decent efforts the last twice and this well-drawn C&D winner could take plenty of catching
