Winner when in Britain for Richard Hannon and runner-up for Richard Fahey. Well beaten on all four starts for current yard and hard to fancy in this company.
Course winner who disappointed as beaten favourite last time out when fifth of 11 though only 1½L behind the winner. Worth another chance stepped up in trip.
Solid and consistent without winning in three starts here in October and November last year when in the care of Mick Halford. Market likely to reveal expectations in first time visor on stable debut.
Best effort in four starts for this yard came when finishing third over C&D in January. Well held since and needs to improve significantly even with the assistance of 10lb claimer.
Managed a well deserved win last month when not unbacked here over 1m in a nine runner maiden and another bold show looks likely here with eye-catching jockey booking once more.
Last win came here over 1m in December 2016 off a 7lb lower mark. Needs to recapture old form to play a role here on return to the track.
Something clearly amiss in January over C&D when last of 13 following some fine performances during November and December. Worth another chance under capable 7lb claimer.
Beaten 29L on last C&D run last month and well beaten again since when last of 13 here three weeks ago. Needs significant improvement in this company.
