Quirky sort who has made a low-key start for new connections in recent weeks. Drop in class should aid his cause, at least.

He has won three times from 5f to 1m on good and soft ground, but last win was over three years ago. Beaten 11l behind Lawmaking at 14-1 when 9th of 14 on his latest outing at Kempton over 1m last month. He is wearing a hood for the first time.

Strong at the finish when cashing in on a reduced mark over C&D a fortnight ago. 3 lb rise perfectly fair so he's a much for the shortlist.

Winner of five races from 6f to 1m on ground varying from good to firm to good to soft and on the all-weather. A winner at 13-2 over this course and distance (good to firm) on his latest outing earlier this month, beating Narjes by 1l.

BAN SHOOF has been off the track since finishing a neck second over 1m2f at Lingfield in February but returns off a mark which is only 1lb higher. He may well gain compensation now dropping back in trip as he was headed in the final strides last time. Duke Of North is only 3lb higher in the ratings than when striking over track and trip last time and is considered the main danger ahead of Ayr third Dose, who drops back from 1m2f.

EYELOOL stepped up on his debut fifth at Newbury when picking up the silver medal over 6f at Ripon last time. William Haggas' charge stayed on well inside the final furlong at the North Yorkshire venue and can be expected to progress again now granted this stiffer test. Light Heart went close over 6f on debut at Ayr and should be thereabouts, while Spirit Warning is entitled to come on for his debut spin behind the classy Calyx at HQ and could feasibly take a hand.

Highland Acclaim is effectively 3lb higher than when scoring over 6f here last time and he can show up well over this longer trip, though it might be worth taking a chance on BIG STORM COMING, who was touched off by a neck over 7f at Doncaster last time out and is expected to return to winning ways sooner than later. Handytalk wasn't beaten far over 6f here last time and is also expected to make his presence felt.

AKVAVERA was disappointing when sent off favourite at Redcar last time but can be forgiven that run and is perhaps best judged on his York second before that when finding just the Sandringham Stakes fourth Desert Diamond too good and is still racing from a winnable mark. Richard Fahey's northern raider, Nottingham winner Paramount Love, wasn't disgraced at Hamilton last time from her revised mark and has to be respected, while Liva has threatened to be a useful performer and now has the chance to improve thanks to a wind operation.

Career-best display when landing 11-runner handicap at Lingfield (9f) in May, well on top finish. Simply not in the same form at Yarmouth (10f) last month, yet the return to 1m won't inconvenience him

Successful at 1m and 1m 1f on good to soft ground and on the all-weather. Finished 10l behind Knight Errant when sixth of 12 at 7-1 on his latest outing at Yarmouth over 1m 2f (good to firm) last month. Has won at Lingfield and Chelmsford City this season.

DATA PROTECTION caught the eye when third last time out on his first start since wind surgery and having been beaten less than a length there when finishing best of all, he has a chance of going one better from just 1lb higher with the extra half a furlong here in his favour. Sukhovey steps up in trip having knocked on the door at Brighton last time, while a drop in distance could help Flere Imsaho prove stronger at the finish.

Not fired for new trainer this year but down to a good mark and there is a strong possibility he'll get an uncontested lead in first-time blinkers.

Successful at 1m 2f and 1m 4f on good to firm ground and on the all-weather, but last win was over two years ago. Well beaten at 5-1 behind Belisa when 10th of 13 on his latest outing at Newcastle over 1m 4f last month.

Nottingham winner Hyanna hasn't been disgrace when making the podium from her revised mark the last twice and Eve Johnson Houghton's three-year-old can get involved once again. However, preference is for local handler Adam West's COULDN'T COULD SHE who was a winner at Windsor over 10 furlongs two starts back and shaped, both then and at this venue last week when third, as a horse who would improve for stepping up in trip. The blinkered first-time Against All Odds could also get involved with Fran Berry in the saddle.
