Had three wins from seven starts last year for George Baker, struggled to land a blow this term in pair of runs for this handler. Down in class here, bounce back possible.
All three career wins have come on the AW and doesn't appear as comfortable on turf. Twice been well beaten here over 7f in the past.
Gelded in December, form has not really picked up as a result. All three wins have come over 5f but, having been rated 94 on the Flat a year ago, he's now dropped 25lb and must be considered on that basis.
Improved with each of three starts so far, latest being 2½L fifth of 14 in 6f good ground maiden at Doncaster last month. Of obvious interest making handicap debut with yard in good form.
Filly ran fine race here in June on good to firm, since been highly-tried on turf at Newmarket and Ascot and returns to this track 11lb lower as a result. Soft ground should be fine and can have a say in this seemingly.
Filly has won previous two starts on turf at Brighton (7f) and Lingfield (6f) both on good to soft ground. 10lb higher than when narrowly denied here last month over 7f as a result but not ruled out.
Lingfield (AW) maiden winner in February, run some credible races in handicaps since but not consistent. First run on turf, watch betting for best guide.
Lightly-raced Redcar maiden winner on soft ground over this trip in October 2015, problems mean she's only run twice since. Well held at Pontefract before switching to this yard and booking of De Sousa is notable.
Winner over C&D at tail end of last year on good to soft, followed up at Catterick over 5f but struggled in three starts this year and is 5lb wrong at these weights.
