Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Making his seasonal reappearance when finishing second at Doncaster, beaten a head by Moraawed. Gains a pound turnaround with that rival and he should come on markedly with race fitness; still unexposed and tough to beat.
Collared late by Moraawed at Doncaster; up 6lb but looks open to further progress

Won his first two career starts as a two-year-old, returning this season with a very good second behind Top Breeze over course and distance. Had a troubled passage that day and a three-pound rise is unlikely to stop him going close.

Not far behind Top Breeze and Yousini here on reappearance; dropped 1lb; competitive shout

Needs to return in excellent form if she's to land this prize

Has done very little wrong in two starts this term over the five-furlong distance, outpaced when third at Hamilton earlier this month. Stepping up to this distance should help matters, but the yard form is a big negative at this point in the season.
Solid record over 5f; this extra furlong is worth exploring; interesting

Has placed on all three of his starts this year, latterly at Ascot when a close third off two pounds lower. A shade harsh from the assessor to upgrade his mark after that, however, and he's likely to struggle in a competitive contest.
Consistent in defeat this term but he's getting no respite from the assessor

Broke his maiden tag at the third attempt with a six-furlong novice success at Kempton, well beaten on handicap debut over a mile on seasonal return. Had excuses given the trip, but he does need to get back on track off a difficult enough mark.
Return to 6f is a plus and he's still unexposed

Made it fourth-time lucky with a seven-furlong victory at Goodwood in novice company. Makes his handicap debut dropping back a furlong in distance, which isn't sure to suit, and he does need to improve given this opening mark.
