Impressive when making a winning handicap debut over 7f at Wolverhampton a month ago. Has to defy a 9lb rise for that success but represents a yard in great form (8/32) at present.
Newcastle handicap winner over 7f in January but held in two subsequent starts including at Wolverhampton last month on his first outing since being gelded. Stepping up in distance.
Finished runner-up in a 20 runner 7f handicap at Newmarket (good-to-firm) on his final outing of 2017. Ran well to finish third off this mark on stable debut at Leicester (7f, heavy) last month and open to improvement upped in trip.
Fair form in two 7f starts at Kempton this spring including when 5L fourth on his penultimate outing. Interesting to see how he fares on handicap debut.
Victorious over 5f at Southwell in January but held in two subsequent starts and stamina to prove on his return to turf.
Decent effort in finish fourth at Ascot (7f, good-to-soft) in September. Well beaten at Wolverhampton when last seen out however and is making his handicap and seasonal debut on this occasion.
Ran well to finish fifth of 17 over 7f at Leicester (good-to-soft) on handicap debut last October. Worth a check in the market on his first start of the season.
Improved on what she showed last year when finishing runner-up over 1m at Kempton on handicap debut earlier this month. Races off a 1lb higher mark on her first start on turf.
Held in three outings over 6f and 7f as a juvenile last autumn. Probably best watched stepping up in trip on his handicap debut.
Struggled in two outings as a two-year-old and it was a similar story when 13L fifth at Thirsk (1m, good-to-soft) on seasonal debut last month. Making his handicap debut in this contest.
