The suggestion is BURFORD BROWN, who delivered on earlier promise when winning a Newcastle maiden 12 days ago.
Scored at Leicester back in June, though further success has since eluded the gelding. That said, he has run with credit on a few occasions of late. A repeat of his sixth (of seventeen) in a Class 3 at Thirsk would surely see him get heavily involved at the business end.
Current mark probably not beyond him, but he needs to prove he's effective on the AW.

Won at Newmarket in May, while the gelding continued to improve when following up at Haydock soon after. Hasn’t been in the same form since, though he is starting creep back down the weights, so much so that he’s now racing off his last winning mark.
Dual 7f turf winner in spring and showed useful 2yo form on Polytrack; considered.

Scored at Musselburgh back in September of last year, though his form since has left plenty to be desired. Finished a weak ninth of twelve at Newcastle when last seen. Connections will be hoping that the addition of a visor sparks improvement.
Well below best form on both starts this year; headgear switched today.

Hasn’t won since getting his head in front at Wolverhampton in March. Did finish a respectable second on the turf at this venue back in May, though each of his last two efforts have been very poor. Remains above his last winning mark.
Back from break with two below-par efforts and remains on fairly tough mark.

A winner at Brighton in May, the gelding has been consistent of late, though he’s finding it tough to get his head in front. Has now returned to his last winning mark, so a slightly improved effort could be on the cards.
Third four times at Brighton since win there in May; switch to AW not sure to suit.

Hasn’t won since getting the job done at Ffos Las in early August, though the gelding has run some nice races in defeat, including when finishing fifth of fifteen in a Class 3 at Newbury last month. A repeat of that effort in this lesser race would likely see him go close.
Turf winner in early August and not had much luck since then.

Built on the promise of some pleasing efforts when winning at Newcastle last time out, though that was a relatively weak maiden. Needs to pull out more if he’s to gain a first success in handicaps.
Came good in recent Newcastle maiden, his sixth start, and has scope to progress again.

Got off the mark at the third time of asking when winning an eight-runner maiden at Lingfield back in September of last year, though his form since has been poor. Returned with a weak effort last time out and more is needed if he’s to win this.
Course winner as 2yo; well beaten on seasonal/handicap debut (turf); may do better here.
