Won twice over 2m2f at Kelso, including latest when an all out nose victor over today's rival Lastin' Memories; raised 4lb.
Pulled up on handicap debut at Musselburgh in January (3m soft), so all hopes pinned on the combination of quicker ground and wind surgery helping him to take a positive step forward.
A winner off this mark at Huntingdon (2m4f) in April 2017 for previous trainer Dan Skelton, but pretty much a tale of woe since joining this trainer cheaply (£2,200) in August 2017.
Milan mare who has shown little signs of promise so far, but is worth monitoring in the market on just her second start in handicap company now upped in trip beyond 2m.
Now a ten race maiden under rules (1 from 3 in point-to-points), but posted an improved effort over fences at Hexham latest, so not entirely dismissed switched back to hurdling.
Given a chance by the handicapper following an extended absence and back with a perfectly respectable effort over C&D latest when finishing 3L third to Castletown; every chance assuming she avoids the dreaded 'bounce factor'.
A maiden after 14 starts and hasn't threatened to change that in five starts since returning from a 21-month absence. Had breathing issues in the past, so readily dismissed.
Failed to trouble the judge in eight starts so far and beaten 68L over 2m4f at Sedgefield (soft) when last in action in December. Also declared to race here on Wednesday (8.05pm).
