Successful twice over C&D and put in one of his better efforts when finishing runner-up off a 6lb higher mark here in May. Held since but respected on his return to this venue.
Winner twice over C&D earlier this year and victorious over hurdles and fences since. Fair effort in an amateur riders handicap at Beverley (1m2f, soft) last time out and one to note in this contest.
Disappointed on debut for this yard last month but put in an improved effort when sixth of ten at Chelmsford last time out. Interesting to see how he fares on his fibresand debut.
Winner of two of his last four starts with both of those victories coming at Kempton. Beaten favourite over 1m3f here in February and has won six times here in the past.
Disappointing in the main since winning over 1m1f at Hamilton (good-to-firm) in August last year and others make more appeal with a wide draw another negative.
Winner on turf over this trip at Hamilton (soft) last month and ran well to finish runner-up at Musselburgh over 1m6f subsequently. Making his debut here having disappointed at Ayr last time.
Stepped up on recent efforts when finishing runner-up over 1m2f at Chelmsford earlier this month. Return to 1m4f not certain to suit and has to prove she handles this surface.
Successful twice in 18 career starts but most recent of those came on debut for this yard in December 2015. Decent second on his penultimate outing but disappointed subsequently and a bit to prove on his fibresand debut.
Sole victory came in a Towcester novice hurdle on good-to-firm ground in May. Non-runner when due to make his debut for this yard at Musselburgh earlier this week and cheekpieces fitted for the first time today.
Amateur ridden on first four starts for this stable including when fourth over 1m2f at Beverley (soft) last month. Well beaten under today's rider since and making his fibresand debut today.
13 race maiden including on three starts in staying handicaps for this yard. Plenty to prove dropping in trip on his debut on this surface.
Couple of decent placed efforts for this yard during the summer but disappointed at Bath (1m2f, good) when last in action. Return to 1m4f should suit from 1lb out of the handicap on fibresand and stable debut.
Placed four times from eight starts at this track and was a winner off a 5lb higher mark over this trip at Wolverhampton in April. Held since including here and and races from out of the handicap today.
Winner of a maiden handicap over 1m at this track in February 2016 and placed over 7f here since. Disappointing on last three starts (including two here) and something to prove upped in trip from out of the handicap today.
