Chris Dwyer is hopeful stable stalwart Mia's Boy can record an overdue victory in the feature lingfieldpark.co.uk Handicap on the all-weather surface.
The nine-year-old has been an excellent servant to his connections down the years, winning nine times from 60 starts and being placed on a further 17 occasions.
While he has failed to get his head in front since December 2011, the veteran has been running some sound races in defeat in recent months and Dwyer believes his charge deserves a return to the winner's enclosure.
"We've kept him going this winter and he's held his form very well. He was making good headway last time and the mile should suit him. He seems to have retained his ability and he's due a win again," said the trainer.
Newmarket-based Italian Marco Botti is keen on the chances of Grey Mirage. The son of Oasis Dream started off last year with a couple of victories and although he lost his way from the summer onwards, the application of cheekpieces helped him get back on the winning trail over Saturday's course and distance last month.
"He's in good form and he handled the track very well. The cheekpieces seemed to help him last time and we'll keep them on again as it seems to make him more focused. He ran to the line well last time as he seemed to get a bit crowded at Kempton the time before," said Botti.
Webbow represents trainer Julie Camacho, whose husband and assistant Steve Brown said: "He's been running consistently well, but things don't get any easier for him. It was quite a tactical race on his last start, but hopefully there'll be more pace this time. He's quite capable of being competitive in a race like this, but off a mark of 95 he needs to find a few pounds from somewhere."
Trainer Michael Attwater is confident George Guru is capable of better this weekend, saying: "It wasn't until after his race we found he had a bit of dirty-looking nose. We've freshened him up and he is very well in himself. If he's back to his best, he's got a serious chance."
Derek Shaw's Loyalty steps up in class and aims to complete a quick-fire course hat-trick.
"Things hadn't gone right for him prior to his last couple of races, but he's come back to himself now. He's come down in the handicap and, on last year's form, he's still well handicapped. I wouldn't know what his best trip was, but he seems in good order and is giving off the right vibes," said Shaw.
