Nicely-bred sort who has finished down the field in three starts in maiden/novice company. May do better now he is handicapping at a modest level.
Showed promise as a juvenile, but has been well held in two handicaps this season. Has been cut some slack by the assessor and the addition of first-time cheekpieces could help.
Out of the frame in five starts, two of them in handicap company. Needs to find extra to get involved off her lowest mark so far.
Three starts for current trainer since joining the yard from Stuart Williams' stable, but has been well held and handicap rating is falling accordingly. May pop up at some stage, but hard to make a strong case for at the moment.
Out of the frame in four starts on the AW and needs switch to turf to have a beneficial effect. Betting market may be the best guide to her chance.
Not at her very best of late, but has not been disgraced either and is able to compete off a feasible mark. Both wins have come on the AW, however.
Three quiet runs in novice company over a variety of distances. Makes his handicap debut back at this trip and is worth a check in the betting.
Easily best effort so far when finishing second of 17 at Leicester last week. Has to be a leading player off the same mark if able to reproduce that running.
Ran well to be second over 6f at Chepstow two starts ago, but could not match that run when fitted with cheekpieces for the first time at Brighton last time. Somewhat surprising the headgear is retained.
Maiden after 11 starts, but did go close on the AW at Lingfield in April. Chance off this lower mark if able to return to that sort of form.
Still a maiden after 12 starts, but last two efforts have been far more encouraging. Up 1lb for her close second at Chepstow last time and has to enter calculations.
Little show in four starts in novice company over 6f to 1m. Retains the hood he wore for the first time on latest start and may do better now he is handicapping,
Fair third of 11 on his handicap debut over 6f at Wolverhampton last time and has been dropped 2lb. Should be involved if taking another step forward.
Remains a maiden after 12 starts and was well held over 1m off this mark at Wetherby on latest outing. Not difficult to oppose.
