Placed the last twice including on handicap debut at Kempton over 7f last month following wind surgery. Wears cheekpieces for the first time on his return to turf.
Off the mark at the second time of asking in a 7f contest at Redcar (good-to-firm) last July. Finished fifth on last months seasonal debut and is stepping up in trip on handicap debut.
Maiden after five starts and best effort so far came when finishing runner-up on soft ground at Ascot (7f) last September. Well held on handicap debut last time and blinkers are tried in this.
Finished fourth the last twice most recently when making his handicap debut at Newmarket (1m, good) last month. Races off the same mark here and is one to note in this contest.
Some fair efforts in novice company last year and shaped as if he'd appreciate this step up in trip when seventh over 7f at Kempton in September. Market support would be interesting on handicap bow.
Fair efforts in two starts over 7f as a two-year-old but finished a well beaten sixth on seasonal debut over this trip last month. Wears cheekpieces for the first time on handicap debut.
Placed on two of his three starts at two and ran well on his first outing since being gelded when finished 2L fourth over 1m at Haydock (soft) on handicap and seasonal debut last month.
Placed on her first three starts at two and also finished 2L third of six off a 2lb higher mark at Ripon (1m, good) in August. Heavy ground likely against her when disappointing on her final start of 2017.
Held in three starts so far including over 7f at Redcar (good-to-soft) last time out. Probably best watched on her handicap debut.
Dual winner last year including off a 2lb lower mark over 7f at Wolverhampton in November. Vulnerable to less exposed rivals on her first start over this trip.
