Took a big step forward on turf last start when showing pace throughout. The further drop in trip and an extra 4lb shouldn't inconvenience and she looks like the penny has dropped.
Sole success last season came in a three runner AW claimer but made a decent reappearance back on turf and off 2lb lower he should be competitive.
Has loads of early speed and has gone close in last five starts. Still a maiden after 12 runs without looking untrustworthy and looks only a matter of time before he makes a deserved breakthrough. Talented apprentice claims valuable 5lb.
Was very well backed when winning on the AW following an eye-catching seasonal reappearance. Races under a 6lb penalty but could be ahead of the handicapper and has speed to cope with drop in trip.
Showed slight improvement on his seasonal reappearance but failed to build on it subsequently. Needs to find improvement for addition of headgear and switch to AW.
Only beaten three horses home in four starts. Showed little on handicap debut when upped in trip and best watched.
Has run at long odds and been well beaten in all four runs to date. Dropped 3lb but doubtful that will be enough to be competitive.
Showed some promise on first two runs this year but disappointed last start in weak race. Feasible return to this track and likely fast early pace will help but bit to find.
Shown a bit more improvement in her last two starts and although she has suggested a step up in trip will help, a quick early tempo will suit. More improvement required but place possibilities.
Shown nothing in five starts to date and headgear needs to produce vast improvement.
