Form can be a little in-and-out. Beaten 4¾L by the thriving Spoofing just three days ago. On the face of it that wasn't a bad effort but can't be trusted to follow that up. Has won over C&D.
Made the running at Beverley (5f, good to firm) last time but is another one that was picked off by Spoofing. That was a good effort. Won't be as easy to get to the lead from a wide draw here though.
Slowly running himself back in to form and a fair effort at Beverley last time behind a rapidly improving rival. Dropped another 1lb and is now 7lb below his last winning mark. Drawn well and has solid claims.
Not had much racing in the last year or so. Beaten a long way on her recent reappearance at Redcar (6f, good to firm). Drops in trip here and should come on for that effort. Starting to look well handicapped but needs to do more to be of interest.
Form has tailed off drastically over the last 12 months. Yard tend to do well with this type though and he is chucked in on his old form. Will surely click at some stage off such an attractive mark.
Big prices in all four starts so far this year and it is very hard to make a case for her on that evidence. Has a decent draw but needs much more to be involved.
14-race maiden who is regularly beaten a long way. Hard to enthuse over chances once gain today and others are preferred.
Made all to score by 1¼L for John Riches at Hamilton in August 2016 (gd/fm), but it's been a tale of woe since with her career record now standing at 1/22.
Well beaten in all 12 starts at huge odds and impossible to recommend despite the blinkers going on for the first time.
