4 x Distance Winner - Won 4 times before at this distance
Admirable sort who hit the frame twice in March at Lingfield. Form took a downturn after that, however he bounced back when finishing a close up fourth in a competitive handicap last time. Last two wins off this mark; sure to go close.
Reliable once hitting form, so no reason he won't go close in a less competitive race

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Cold Recent Form Jockey - 0 wins from 36 in the last 14 days (0%)
Lightly raced four year old who return to action six pounds higher than when scoring easily at Doncaster n October. Latest effort on Fibresand can be ignored; should be thereabouts, although he'll have to be at his best to defy this mark.
Two wins last year came on good to soft; has the potential to do better again

2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Consistent in defeat on the All-Weather since scoring in November, returning to turf with a second behind a progressive rival. Well treated, he cannot be easily dismissed for place claims although he may well find a couple too good.
Rare runner for his trainer in these parts and is on a competitive mark; shortlisted

Distance Specialist - 2 wins from 3 starts at this distance (67%)
Progressed as a three year old for Luca Cumani, rising twenty one pounds as a result of two wins over this trip. Showed very little on stable debut in a competitive Tapeta handicap; this is easier although it looks likely the assessor has his measure.
Big price and a poor start for his new yard on the AW last month; now switched to a visor

Improved for the switch to Jim Goldie, scoring twice and hitting the frame on three occasions here. Performed with great credit twice this season, although thirteen pounds higher than when scoring here in June, a few others are better treated.
Course record reads: 41123 and arrives in form but needs to find a bit more from somewhere

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Placed in all three starts this season, including twice in handicap company over thirteen. Only found a short priced rival too good here two starts back; remains open to more progress than a few of these runners. Shortlisted from an unchanged mark.
Still lightly raced and could well be the one to make the running; has to be respected

2 x Course Winner - Won 2 times before at this course
Scored twice here, including in July when narrowly ahead of Theglasgowwarrior. Just a pound higher now, although he has shown little in two starts this spring, his best effort this year coming off a vastly lower All-Weather mark in January.
Dual course winner; still a bit early in the season for him and doesn't arrive in any form

J: Phil Dennis
T: Jim Goldie
Made a promising start to life for this yard, hitting the frame at Doncaster when staying on well. Now two pounds higher than for that, and he's shown very little in two Tapeta starts. Just one from eleven, he's readily avoided.
Gone backwards this spring; has to prove his stamina going beyond 1m2f for the first time
