Yet to win in 17 starts on turf but often runs his race and is in good form having won twice on the fibresand at Southwell (including last time out) this spring.
Sole success came in a 6f maiden handicap on good-to-soft ground here last August. Disappointed when eighth of nine on seasonal debut at Doncaster (6f, soft) last time.
Wore a hood (absent here) for the first time when finishing 1L second over 1m on firm ground here last week. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist having won over C&D in the past.
Placed three times from seven starts on the AW since joining this yard. Well held at Wolverhampton last time out however and more needed in this contest.
Failed to trouble the judge in three starts since returning this season. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be interesting with a good jockey booked to ride.
Put a disappointing effort behind her when finishing fourth in first time cheekpieces (retained) over C&D on soft ground last time out. Making just her second start on turf.
Struggled in the main this season and beaten 23L when finishing 15th of 16 over an extended 7f at Beverley (good-to-firm) on his return to turf earlier this month.
Placed in a Wolverhampton maiden over this trip in January last year. Struggled since including upped to an extended 1m1f when last in action over five months ago.
13 race maiden but placed on half of his six turf starts so far. Well beaten on debut for this yard over 1m here last time and this return to 7f should suit.
Seven race maiden and beaten 2¼L into eighth over this distance at Kempton earlier this month on her return from a break. Racing from out of the handicap.
Sole success came over 6f at Hamilton (good) in July 2016. Well beaten over 5f at Chelmsford on seasonal debut last month and races from out of the handicap on just his third start over this distance.
Out of form this year and well held at Nottingham (6f, good-to-firm) with returning visor (retained) last time. others have a more obvious chance racing from out of the handicap.
