Bashiba(5.15 Doncaster)

Three-time course and distance winner on a winning mark and could find this run to suit his hold up run style.

Topspeed: Dave Edwards

El Astronaute(3.00 Doncaster)

Has been a model of consistency this season and John Quinn's sprinter can supplement his recent York success.

Timiyan(4.20 Listowel)

Stayed on gamely to beat Rogue Angel on first try beyond 3m last time. Gets in here off low weight and has services of talented 7lb claimer.
