Quickened up smartly to score impressively last time. Yard in form and a repeat looks a strong possibility if handling quicker conditions.
Beat a modest bunch on fast ground last season and he hardly looks well-handicapped on that form. Gets quick conditions for the first time since that victory and this well tell us more given his good draw and stable form.
Winner of a Lingfield novice but that form and subsequent efforts demand improvement. Trainer has a 6-12 record here over the past five seasons and it paid to be drawn centrally here on Tuesday.
Won two on quick ground including a good prize at York. Conditions have not been right of late and he is below his last winning mark from a tough draw.
At his best when conditions were quick last year. Not suited by the slow pace last time, but has the speed to make the most of a good draw and a more attractive mark.
Has been running to a consistent level and one that gives him every chance in this. To do so requires him to overcome a poor draw.
Has made all to land her last two but up 14lb for a narrow success in basement grade last time.
Handicap debutant for a yard who are rare visitors here. First run since wind surgery and worth noting for a move in the market.
Musselburgh winner on final start of 2017 but last on reappearance off this mark and she is poorly drawn.
Improved on latest start when getting a faster surface to race on. The third turned out to be quite useful and the stable had a first time out winner here on Tuesday.
Took a backward step last time and even her best form looks short of what will be required to take this.
Sire's progeny prefer softer ground and he had conditions to suit when producing a career best last time. Up 4lb for that on a faster surface.
Best efforts have come over a bit further and he has never really progressed since a Salisbury second last July. Cheekpieces on for first time.
Travelled well for a long way on her last three starts. Looks to have a race in her from this sort of mark, but she is drawn right under the stands rail and most of the pace is on the far side.
Came to hand early last season and her third to Elnadim Star now looks a good run. Would have to be considered if in the same form.
In good form but now has to improve to defy a 6lb rise with conditions forecast to be much quicker.
