A three-time winner in 2017 with the last of them coming over C&D off a 1lb higher mark he's run respectably in his last two outings. Not quite in the same form as when he was in his winning spree and more needed to take this.
Features just above his last winning mark and looked a little unlucky not to win on his penultimate start at Chelmsford over 6f (well backed and hampered close home) Failed to build on that promise last time despite having the run of the race; likes to make the running.
Certainly shaped as though he could win a race soon when finishing third at Newcastle on his penultimate start (travelled well) but was undone by the 7f trip. Ran respectably back to 6f last time out at the same track and is well below his last winning mark.
Looked to be suited by running over 7f when finally getting off the mark in August at Catterick (seen to good advantage from the front). Nowhere near the same form since and continued out of form after a break at Lingfield last time out.
Twice a winner last year on the AW he took advantage of a change of headgear (cheekpieces) and slipping below his last winning mark to win at Lingfield on his penultimate start. Ran well at Lingfield yesterday (just touched off) and will still be a danger if taking up this engagement.
A record of 0/16 doesn't really inspire and although she has shown some glimmers of ability she made hard work of it last time out. Stayed on well over C&D after being under early pressure and may be worth a try over 7f.
Most of her form is fairly modest and she hasn't won since the middle of 2016 off an 8lb higher mark. Placed last time out in a lower grade than this (just held on for second) but others hold more scope.
She's not one to go overboard about despite a reasonable run on her penultimate start on the Fibresand at Southwell. She failed to follow-up that run last time out (well backed) in first-time cheekpieces and on balance she's best left alone here back on Tapeta.
Most of her form is poor although she fared better of late when back in headgear over C&D last time (took third). Had looked out of sorts prior to that and has work to do here to repeat that run.
Modest maiden who has been well below form in her last two starts and from out of the handicap here has work to do to feature. Others make more appeal.
Yet to get off the mark after 14 runs and offered little after a break last time out going with little fluency. Hard to make a case for him here on what he's shown so far.
