The one that appeals most is REFRAIN, who still has potential for his top yard and may be able to strike at this new trip after a break.
Consistent sort who was last seen finishing second in a maiden at Wolverhampton last week. Back in handicap company today, and this step up in trip should suit him. Respected here with talented seven pounds claimer booked.
Not progressed since going close at Brighton in May and record now stands at 0-10

Eight-race maiden, but he cost €250,000 as a yearling and he is bred to be quite smart. Pulled too hard to do himself justice on his only previous attempt at this trip. Still fairly unexposed so no surprise if he puts up an improved effort here.
Needs to raise his game again and has stamina to prove back at this trip

Broke his maiden tag at the ninth attempt when scoring in a 1m 6f handicap here last month. Failed to back that effort up at Goodwood last time out, but he could improve back at this track.
Tailed off at Goodwood latest but beat a clear second over 1m6f here two runs back

Beaten favourite on his handicap debut at Wolverhampton in July, and he was held back at that venue last time out. This step up in trip looks likely to suit him today though, and Jason Watson claims a valuable three pounds off his back.
Didn't get much luck at Wolverhampton (1m4f) latest and is respected back from a break

Landed a 1m 2f handicap at this venue in July, but he is winless from three starts since. The return to this track could suit today, however, and he could improve now stepped up to this trip for the first time.
Still has potential and could kick on again at this new trip; another change of headgear

Ran a career-best effort when third in a 1m 6f handicap here last time out. The first-time cheekpieces appeared to bring about some improvement from her there, and she is respected if the headgear continues to have a positive effect.
Creditable third over 1m6f here latest and is open to more progress in staying handicaps

Showed very little earlier this term, but he put up an improved effort when second in a handicap at Catterick last time out. Connection now fit him with first-time cheekpieces, which could bring about some further improvement today.
Improved second when upped to 1m6f at Catterick and is respected off same mark here

Winner over 1m 2f here on her penultimate outing, but she was a beaten favourite back over that same course and distance last time out. Needs the addition of a first-time visor (and the step up in trip) to help her today.
Needs to find some more progress and not sure if step up to this trip will suit
