On a winnable mark, but his best AW form last winter came over 6f (course winner in February 2017). However, despite a tame effort here over C&D latest, he's worth another go over this trip given his prominent style of racing.
Always a force to be reckoned with over the minimum trip at Newcastle, and can pack a potent late punch when others are beginning to cry enough. Beaten a head in this race in 2017, and a C&D winner just 5-days later.
Slipped 7lb in the weights after a couple of modest efforts for this trainer. She cost £8,000 from Roger Charlton in November, so it's early days to be forming solid judgements about her just yet.
A 5f winner for David Evans at Wolverhampton in February 2017, but off the track for almost a year now and returns to action for a new trainer.
Has run just twice since her juvenile days, and not shown much promise, leading to a fall of 7lb in the weights. Not a likely contender.
A 5f winner at Catterick in May 2016 when with Paul Midgely, but hasn't won on the AW for over four years (Southwell). Still early days with this excellent trainer, and almost certainly will have needed last month's Wolverhampton start.
Just 2lb higher than when scoring over C&D in January (Class 7), and whilst he's advancing in terms of years, he knows how to get the job done at this particular track.
Not had all that many starts, six in total, but equally hasn't shown any worthwhile form. Goes over the minimum trip for the first time wearing a newly applied hood, and we'll wait and see if that leads to a better effort.
An eight race maiden, but she's hit the frame on her last three starts at Newcastle (5f to 6f). 1lb higher than when beaten 1L by Novabridge over C&D in January, and also beaten by the same margin by Windforpower in mid-December (third).
16lb lower than when scoring for Micheal Dods at Hamilton in September 2016 (6f heavy), so theoretically you could say he's well handicapped. Handles the AW okay, but hasn't progressed for this stable.
Formerly with Iain Jardine, this eight race maiden hasn't raced since November 2015, but was withdrawn here in January (unruly). Stable badly impacted by the snow over the past few weeks, so he's likely to benefit for this run.
