Second behind the smart Wissahickon in the Cambridgeshire last September. Returned from a break to score at Haydock in April, but he has not been at that level of form the last twice; handicapper appears to be in charge at present.
Needs more than the last twice (8.5f/1m) but has still run well and 1m2f may suit better

Tailed off in Royal Ascot handicap but career-best form came over this C&D last August

Returned to winning ways in a mile handicap at Windsor last time out; keeping on well under pressure to score by half a length. Arrives here three-pound wrong under a penalty for that success, however, which makes life difficult today.
Has won more than his share in last two years but this will be tough off career-high mark

Ended 2018 with victory in a Wolverhampton handicap, but he was well held in three starts in Dubai earlier this year. Now in the care of Nick Littmoden, but he struggled on his debut for this yard at Newmarket last month; tough to recommend.
Always behind on stable debut but may be sharper today and he's on a competitive mark

Did it rather cosily at Newmarket latest; could be more to come from lightly raced 4yo

Beaten favourite at Newmarket on his return to action last month, but he left that form behind when fourth in the Royal Hunt Cup afterwards. Stayed on strongly there, suggesting that the step back up to this trip would suit; pound lower today.
Flew home for fourth in Royal Hunt Cup and has potential now back up in distance

Racked up a hat-trick for this yard last year; has generally run well in defeat in his six starts so far this campaign. Unfortunate not to finish closer than fourth at Sandown last time, but he is likely to remain vulnerable for win purposes off this mark.
Didn't enjoy a clear run when fourth to Jazeel at Sandown latest; each-way contender

Just a neck behind Aquarium in a course and distance handicap last October, but his form dipped afterwards. Has been gelded prior to making his return to action today though, and this mark looks workable if anywhere near his best; claims.

Gained successive handicap wins at Ripon earlier this season; not disgraced in both his subsequent outings. Remains on a joint career-high mark though, and his record at this venue currently reads an underwhelming 0-4; should come up short.
Won two in a row at Ripon in May/June and has had excuses the next twice; interesting

Excellent strike-rate of 4-7 in his career thus far; two of those successes coming for this yard. Held in Listed company at Goodwood last time, but this is a far more realistic target for him, and his current mark looks workable; likely protagonist.
Down the field in Goodwood Listed on reappearance but was on five-timer; retains potential

Improver - Shown significant improvement last 2 starts
Occupied the runner-up berth in his first two starts for this yard; got off the mark at the third attempt when scoring at Sandown last week. Did not appear to have a great deal in hand there, however, so improvement is required under a five-pound penalty.
More needed to defy penalty for narrow Sandown win but a stronger gallop could help

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
13/2 winner of a Pontefract handicap on his seasonal reappearance in April, and he has run well in defeat in both starts since. Arrives here just two pounds above his last winning mark, but he may have to settle for each-way money at best once again.
Admirably consistent this year and possible this prominent-racer will get run of things

Finished second in successive All-Weather handicaps prior to coming up short on his return to turf at Windsor last time out. Clearly not at his best there, but this is an even tougher assignment; should find at least a couple of these rivals too good.
Couldn't transfer his useful AW form back to turf last time

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 32 in the last 14 days (3%)
Five-time winner, but his losing run currently stretches back to July 2017. Has not been seen since finishing down the field in a course and distance handicap last August. Arrives here on a potentially lenient mark, but he is entitled to need the run.
Down to an attractive mark but well below best on final two outings last summer

Long Traveller - Trained 150+ miles from racecourse
Winless since landing a Doncaster nursery last September. Remains a stone above that last winning mark, and he finished well down the field in a Newmarket handicap last time out, where he did not look the most willing under pressure; opposable.
3yo; big run on first crack at 1m2f but looked difficult ride next time out

Verdict

William Haggas has been doing well in major races with reappearing runners, which points to a big run from MY LORD AND MASTER (nap).
