C&D winner who has been finding it tough to get his head of front of late. Drop back in grade to a seller gives him a big shout at the weights and should go well.
Been slightly on the downgrade since joining this yard. Best recent effort came in a three-runner claimer over C&D three starts back. Capable at this best though if short break has freshened him up
Struggled since finishing runner-up at Windsor (6f, good) last July including in three outings this spring. Would have a big shout in this at his peak however and good claimer booked. Could bounce back.
Only three wins (all on the AW) from 66 career starts. Not been in the best of form of late but very capable at this level on his day so any market support would be significant.
Still a maiden after 15 starts and is likely to struggle to cope with a few of these at the weights.
Dual purpose campaigner but yet to get off the mark under either code of racing. Very modest form at best and others look much more convincing.
Best effort by some way when fourth at Bath (5½f, good) two starts back. Didn't like the soft ground at Chepstow last time. Switch to this surface and cheekpieces added could give him a squeak dropped in grade.
Only had one start so far when shaping with a bit of promise at Kempton (7f, AW). Not been seen for eight months since though and hard to recommend here unless positive in market.
