Yet to win a race and flopped when well-backed last time over 7f on the AW in first-time cheekpieces. Ran rather freely but found little and needs one or two of these to run below par to score here.
Below form on his last two starts both on softer ground than he will encounter here but is on a good mark if he can find some form. His yard are going well at the moment and a sounder surface may see a better performance.
All his juvenile starts (three) have suggested that he has some ability but was one for the longer term and handicaps. Now gets his chance in that sphere off an absence and worth watching in the market on handicap debut.
Progressed gradually as a juvenile but didn't get a chance in handicaps until her first run as a three-year-old. Shaped as though she would be better for the run there on the AW over 1m and will be suited by this return to turf off a 2lb lower mark.
Made her debut as a two-year-old over 7f but not tried at this trip since and looked as though she needed the run over 6f at Bath last time. Finished well held there but comes from a good family and should do better in the future.
May well have benefitted from a switch to turf last time when taking a Brighton 7f handicap showing improved form for her initial win. Nudged up 2lb for that ½ length win she remains of interest and can get involved here.
Given plenty of racing as a juvenile he hardly holds any secrets from the handicapper but he has put up some sound efforts of late. Blinkers back on today (both wins in a visor) he's always vulnerable to bump into an unexposed sort.
Nursery winner on the AW late last year her form this year is no more than average with her mark looking to sum her up. All her runs this year have been of a similar level and she's a place option at best for now.
Only a modest maiden although his pedigree suggests he should be able to do better than that. Already had three handicap attempts without showing a great deal with the visor now tried for the first-time to eke out some further improvement.
Well backed for the second-time in a row when making his turf debut last time running in his second handicap (4th behind Kachumba). Now 3lb better off with that one for a narrow beating and should run another sound race.
A well exposed sort she has in fact run well the last twice but she doesn't have much in hand off this mark against some who have been rather more lightly raced. Has now proved she stays this trip but may find one or two too good again.
Looked to appreciate the 1m trip last time rallying well to take third close home. That all happened in a lower grade than this though (0-55) and she has work to do here from 3lb out of the handicap in a better grade.
