Admirable veteran who finished second in the July Cup at this meeting in 2015. Showed that he still retained his ability to win when landing a Chelmsford handicap last time out. Eight pounds lower back on turf today, but his recent grass runs have been poor.
Seems to save best for AW now, but 8lb lower than Chelmsford win latest; good record here

Had Tropics behind when landing a Chelmsford handicap last month, but that rival reversed the form next time out. Held on his return to turf at the Curragh last time out; looks vulnerable here running from a mark that he is yet to win from.
Most recently fifth of 16 from unhelpful draw in competitive Curragh handicap; contender

Justified favouritism to land the Scottish Sprint Cup at Musselburgh in April. Not at that level in his two starts since, but he had possible excuses for those efforts; burst blood vessel at Chelmsford latest. Major claims if back to his best this afternoon.
Won competitive Musselburgh handicap off 6lb lower in April but burst blood vessel latest

Landed a conditions race at Beverley on his final start of 2018. Has failed to add to that success from his seven starts so far this season, but he shaped with promise when fourth at the Curragh last time. Current mark not beyond him if building on that effort.
Won off this mark at Doncaster last summer; shaped well in hot Curragh handicap latest

By far the best of his four starts this season came when fourth in a competitive York handicap in May. Nowhere near that level of form in his two subsequent outings though, and he is arriving here with more to prove than most in this line-up.
Ran well off 6lb higher at York just three starts back, but last two runs have been poor

Ended last season in good form, but he has struggled in all three of his starts so far this campaign; failed to beat a rival home at Windsor last time. Now back down to his last winning mark, but others look far more reliable betting propositions here.
Good 5-17 record but out of sorts three starts this term so needs big bounce back to form

Eleven-time winner, the more recent of those successes coming at Brighton in April. Arrives here just two pounds above his last winning mark, but he has been held in weaker races than this recently; should find at least a couple too strong.
Two C&D wins inc this race two years ago, but only third off this mark at Brighton latest
