There are 17 runners in this race.
|1||5||32||9 Albert Boy
Twelve runs since last win in 2017. Creditable fourth of 9 in handicap at Leicester (11.8f, good to firm, 6/1) 32 days ago. No more than an each-way squeak.
| ||Theodore Ladd|| Scott Dixon||14/1||10/1||40|
9/1, creditable second of 9 in handicap at Beverley (9.9f, good to soft) 20 days ago, flattered by proximity. Back up in trip and probably needs a couple of these to falter.
| ||Harrison Shaw||Michael Easterby||8/1||17/1||53|
One win from 21 Flat runs. 9/2, creditable second of 9 in handicap at Beverley (9.9f, good to soft) 20 days ago, clear of rest. Back up in trip and shouldnt be far away.
| ||Faye McManoman||Marjorie Fife||11/1||9.5/1||16|
Won 11-runner handicap at Carlisle (11.2f, good, 28/1) 14 days ago, suited by strong pace. This 5 lb higher mark leaves him looking vulnerable.
| ||Ben Curtis||Lawrence Mullaney||7.5/1||12/1||38|
|5th||4||14||6 King's Coinage
Thirteen runs since last win in 2017. 16/1, fourth of 6 in handicap at Ripon (12f, good to firm) 14 days ago. Not without each-way hope.
| ||James Sullivan||Ruth Carr||16/1||9/1||78|
|6th||5||76||2 Fisher Green
Fourth of 5 in handicap (7/2) at Newcastle (10.2f) 76 days ago. Can give a good account without posing serious threat to principals.
| ||David Allan||Roger Fell||14/1||10/1||40|
C&D winner. Last of 3 in handicap at Leicester (10f, good, 13/8) 26 days ago. Back up in trip and will be a danger to all if she puts her best foot forward.
| ||Daniel Tudhope||David O'Meara||7/1||7/1||0|
|8th||3||11||17 New Britain
Fourth of 10 in handicap at Newcastle (10.2f, 16/1) 11 days ago. That represented a step in the right direction but not enough to make him a probable winner of this.
| ||Cam Hardie||Philip Kirby||25/1||26/1||4|
|9th||3||9||10 French Flyer
Hooded for 1st time, seventh of 8 in handicap (11/1) at Ayr (10f, good to firm) 9 days ago, left poorly placed. Up in trip and capable of making his presence felt.
| ||Andrew Mullen||Michael Dods||8/1||13/1||38|
|10th||6||89||7 Pullman Brown
Eighteen runs since last win in 2015. Last of 8 in handicap at Ayr (10f, firm, 16/1) 89 days ago. Back up in trip and chance on old form but hard to make a case for based on recent evidence.
| ||Phil Dennis||Philip Kirby||33/1||51/1||35|
|11th||7||111||5 Champagne Rules
8/1, creditable second of 12 in handicap at Newcastle (10.2f) in May, no match for winner. Absent since but now 1 lb lower back on turf and conditions/return to this trip wont be a problem.
| ||Connor Murtagh||Sharon Watt||8/1||11/1||27|
|12th||5||0||14 Arizona Sunrise
Eleven runs since last win in 2016. 50/1 and cheekpieces on for 1st time, twelfth of 14 in handicap at Ripon (8f, good) 7 days ago. Stamina to prove and probably best to look elsewhere.
| ||Nathan Evans||Tina Jackson||50/1||67/1||25|
|13th||4||33||4 Princess Nearco
C&D winner in June. 7/2, fifth of 6 in handicap at Catterick (12.1f, good) 33 days ago. That wasnt one of her better efforts but shes one to consider nonetheless.
| ||Paula Muir||Lawrence Mullaney||11/1||8/1||38|
Remains a maiden after 19 Flat runs. 10/1, tenth of 13 in handicap at Ayr (10f, good) 13 days ago. Up in trip and likely to struggle once again.
| ||Barry McHugh||Declan Carroll||33/1||23/1||43|
16/1, third of 9 in handicap at Beverley (9.9f, good to soft) on UK Flat debut 20 days ago. Back up in trip and improvement needed.
| ||Michael Stainton||Micky Hammond||16/1||26/1||38|
|16th||8||113||16 Rosie Hall
Remains a maiden after 29 Flat runs. Last of 7 in novice hurdle at Market Rasen (16.7f, good, 150/1) 92 days ago. Off 92 days and up in trip. Poor on last Flat outing.
| ||Paddy Aspell||John Wainwright||100/1||151/1||34|
|17th||3||84||12 Strongarm Chaser
Lightly-raced maiden on Flat. 12/1, first run since leaving Richard Hannon when second of 9 in juvenile hurdle at Market Rasen (16.7f, good to firm) on NH debut 59 days ago. Others make more appeal.
| ||Graham Lee||Donald McCain||12/1||12/1||0|
