Landed a 6f handicap at Lingfield in December, but was well held off 4lb higher at that venue the following month. Returns from a break and looks vulnerable off this mark.
Won three times as a juvenile, but has cut little ice in two handicaps this season. Handicapper is relenting, but she may need a little more help in that department.
Won thee times when traied by Mark Johnston. First run for current handler following a lengthy break saw her finish quite a promising sixth of 10 at Chelmsford in March. Chance off 2lb lower.
Handicap winner at Leicester a year ago, and finished runner-up four times in a row at the back end of the season. Starts the new campaign off a 2lb higher mark, but may have more to offer as a four-year-old.
Has run with credit off this mark on last three starts. Positive jockey booking and going should suit, so all is in place for a bold show.
Back-to-back wins at Redcar and Pontefract in September, but handicapper took his revenge and she has been unable to get her head in front again since. Down to last winning mark, however, so not ruled out.
Wolverhampton winner in October and runner-up in all three subsequent starts off around this mark, latterly over 7f. Looks sure to be thereabouts again.
Returning from her winter break when last of six over 5f at this track last month. Down 2lb, should strip fitter and return to this longer distance will suit.
Winner of a Nottingham novice contest on debut at Nottingham, but has not really kicked on from that and was only eighth of 11 on handicap bow and seasonal reappearance at Newmarket. Can do better for her leading stable.
