- 1m 7f 189y, Good (Good to Firm in places)
- 9 Runners
- Surface: Turf
All three career wins have come on the All Weather. 0/8 on turf and was beaten a very long way at Nottingham (2m, good to firm) last time. That race was won by a handicap blot but more needed all the same.
Has really been struggling over hurdles of late and well beaten on all five starts under that code in 2018. First flat run today for eight months and is on an attractive mark in this sphere but needs to do much more. Market support would be key.
Having first run for over 18 months when making reappearance at Ripon (2m, good) last month. Should come on for that effort having been well beaten and is on a fair mark. Previous C&D winner and hard to discount.
Talented individual on his day and returned to from with a bang over C&D last time when winning comfortably by 5L. Handed an 8lb ride in the weights for that which makes life tougher but not certain to stop him all the same if on another going day.
Only one win from 13 starts on the flat and ran ok final start under this code at Pontefract (2m5½f, good to soft). There is every chance this track and conditions will be a bit on the sharp side for him today so no surprise if they go forward early
Only one (over C&D) win from 18 attempts on the flat so far. Hasn't been showing a great deal under both codes so far this year and hard to recommend in current form.
Hard to make a strong case for on recent evidence and was well beaten by Italian Riviera here two starts back. Lots to do to reverse that form from out of the handicap.
Poor form on all nine starts (maiden), including when beaten in a course seller latest over 1m6f. No obvious chance at these weights.
Very hard to make a case for her based on recent efforts and from racing out of the weights here. Starts life for a new yard today and needs that to inject some life.
