Ran better than his finishing position when returning from an absence at Windsor under today's rider. Looked in need of the run and taken very wide all the way he may well be able to produce more here; well below last winning mark.
Lightly-raced on the Flat and still a maiden she showed some improvement last time when a never-nearer sixth on the AW over an extended 1m. This trip will suit her far better and she has more scope than the majority of this field.
Lurks on a dangerous mark having won off 78 in the past and been rated higher. Showed that there was still some ability there last time out over 1m4f on the AW and dropping into this 0-60 he can't be discounted.
Three runs in maiden events have failed to uncover much ability but going handicapping may help off a lowly mark. More needed though and one of the less likely prospects.
From a stable in good form she was far too free to do herself justice on her first run back from wind surgery last time (strong in the betting). Will need to settle better here and has still to win a race.
Looked to have the run of the race when taking 4th in an AW claimer over slightly further last time (run not as good as it looks). Cheekpieces worn there for the first-time are retained here on his debut for the yard.
Ran to a respectable level and no more in first-time cheekpieces when last seen on the AW here over 2m but remains a maiden. Now drops in trip back from an absence and returning to turf off a basement mark.
Not really seen to best effect back on the Flat last time in very different conditions at Salisbury over a 3f longer trip. Drop in trip not certain to suit and was a regressive sort over hurdles; others make more appeal.
