Returned with a promising third before disappointing at Redcar. Best form at this trip and will appreciate the drying ground so could easily bounce back.
Had a wind operation since last season when progressing on each run culminating in a third start win. Handicap debut and should improve over this extra distance and with the absence.
Hasn't gone on since Windsor win on his second start and although he was entitled to need the run on his return, that is now two poor runs in a row and the blinkers are now added.
Promising fourth over an inadequate trip at Bath on his return and interesting now back up to this distance and now a 2lb lower mark for his in form stable.
Two good runs from three in maidens represents strong form and his second last time can be upgraded with little going right in the run. Should come on for the reappearance and make a big effort on handicap debut.
Looked well above average when showing much improved form stepped back up to this trip on handicap debut. Raised 11lb but looked the type to improve significantly at three and one to keep on the right side of.
Lightly raced and ran a very good fourth in a strong handicap over 6f at Newmarket. Needs to prove he wants this far but the fast ground is very much in his favour and is improving.
Well beaten on handicap debut on his fourth start last season. Looked the type to need time so entitled to improve and market best guide.
Stable debut on return from an absence after two poor runs on the AW. May appreciate the return to turf and quicker conditions and in good hands. Market support should be noted.
Won a novice race over 6f here last season but hasn't gone on since. Didn't act on fibresand following an absence but still best watched at present.
Placed at huge odds on third start and now makes handicap debut. Appeared to improve for switch to AW surface and well beaten on quick ground on debut. Tough ask.
One place behind Party Fears Too but was staying on late and could reverse form on handicap debut. Only raced on AW so far so unproven in conditions but only likely to improve.
Used aggressive tactics from poor draw when fourth at Lingfield following handicap win. Likely more to come after absence and with more patient tactics.
Maiden after four starts and well held on handicap and seasonal debut. Needs to find significant improvement.
