2 x Distance Winner - Won 2 times before at this distance
Distance Specialist - 2 wins from 3 starts at this distance (67%)
Won Last Time Out - Won on last start
Winner of two of his last three starts; landed a Carlisle novice by four lengths last time out. Now makes his nursery debut, but it is tough to describe this opening mark as anything other than fair; others preferred.
Pair of novice wins; hard to argue that opening mark is generous but he is progressing

T: Tom Dascombe
16/1 winner of a Doncaster maiden on debut in April, but he has failed to add to that success from his three starts since; well held on nursery debut at Haydock last time. Needs the addition of first-time cheekpieces to spark a revival in form.
Won and 2nd on first 2 starts and has had excuses for his efforts since; cheekpieces added

Distance Winner - Won before at this distance
Won Last Time Out - Won on last start
Long Traveller - Trained 150+ miles from racecourse
Improved markedly for a recent gelding operation (and the addition of first-time cheekpieces) when landing a Hamilton novice last time out. That headgear is retained today, but he does look vulnerable to a better-handicapped rival.
Decisive winner of 6f Hamilton novice in cheekpieces (retained) latest; considered

Beaten Favourite - Losing favourite last time out
Long Traveller - Trained 150+ miles from racecourse
Third behind subsequent dual Group 2 winner Raffle Prize in a Chester maiden in May. Beaten less than a length into third at Carlisle last time, and that form has been well advertised since; this opening mark of 77 may well underestimate him.
Form of his 3rds on last 2 starts suggests he can make presence felt off this opening mark

Placed in his first two starts; close third in a Thirsk maiden last month, but he disappointed over today’s course and distance last time out. Gelded prior to making his nursery debut this afternoon, needs that to have brought about some improvement.
Not at his best over C&D latest but placed first 2 runs; gelded ahead of nursery bow

Close second in a Newcastle novice on his debut last month, but he has struggled in both starts since. A first-time hood is applied for his nursery debut this afternoon, but he is arriving here with more to prove than most of these rivals.
Well held last twice but can be made to look nicely treated judged on debut; hood added

Has come close to breaking his maiden tag the last twice; shaped as though this trip would suit when staying on for third at Newcastle last time. This opening mark is unlikely to prove beyond him, and he looks a live each-way player today.
Looked ready to 6f when 3rd on AW latest; likely more to come in nurseries; big player

Cold Recent Form Jockey - 1 wins from 32 in the last 14 days (3%)
Not disgraced when third in a novice over today’s course and distance last time. Bred to appreciate today’s step up in trip, and this mark looks workable. Softer ground may be preferable though.
Fair form when 3rd in 5f course novice latest; more to come now handicapping up in trip

A tentative vote goes to TEENAR, whose latest Newcastle third was boosted by the second winning a nursery this week.
