Dual winner last season, but was out of his depth behind the brilliant Saxon Warrior in the autumn. There was no shame in that and he made a pleasing reappearance when just touched off at Beverley last month. Up another 2lb.
Landed a Doncaster maiden on his final start of last season and was a good winner in handicap company on his return to action at Newmarket. A 5lb rise is fair and this progressive sort looks a major player.
Several good displays during his juvenile campaign, but no obvious excuse for his well-beaten sixth of 10 in a Newmarket handicap last month. Needs to improve off 1lb lower.
Well-bred colt who is a without a win after five races and was a disappointing favourite when only fifth of eight in a 1m2f maiden on his return at Nottingham last month. Drop in trip should help considerably.
Successful in a 16-runner Sandown maiden in September and may have found the ground too soft on his handicap debut at Doncaster on his final start of last season. Unexposed and has possibilities.
Second win, and his first in handicap company, when touching off Alfa McGuire at Beverley. Reopposes on 1lb worse terms so it will surely be close between the pair again.
Debut victory on the AW at Wolverhampton, but has not really stepped up in four runs on turf. Stamina ran out in a 1m2f handicap at Sandown on his reappearance and this drop in trip should suit.
Four-race maiden who has showed definite signs of talent. Interesting to see how he fares after being gelded and on his first start in a handicap for a trainer who has a good record at this venue.
