- 1m 4f 8y, Good to Firm (Good in places, watered)
- 15 Runners
- Surface: Turf
Finished a good second at Hamilton (good-to-firm) over an extended 1m last June. Disappointing since returning from a lengthy absence and upped in trip for this.
Placed four times from nine starts including when second at Haydock (1m2f, good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting to see how he fares with this trip likely to suit.
13 race maiden and finished runner-up the last twice most recently at Hamilton (1m5f, good) last week. Worth a check in the market on this occasion.
Winner of four races at up to 1m but most recent success came in September 2016. Well held over an extended 1m4f at Chester (good) last month.
Dual winner last year including over C&D on good ground in August. Well held on return to action but interesting off a mark just 1lb higher than for her most recent victory.
Placed on his final three starts on the AW for Patrick Holmes earlier this year and worth a check i n the market on debut for a new yard following a break.
Placed over 1m4f at Kempton in March but disappointing in the main since and beaten 42L over an extended 1m6f at Doncaster (good) recently. Top jockey booked to ride.
Well held in three of his four starts this term. Exception came when finishing fifth here at the end of April and he has won off higher marks in the past.
Placed over an extended 1m4f at Newcastle last November. Subsequently changed yards and handicap mark is falling following three defeats last month.
Ten time winner including over this trip but well held in two outings since joining this yard and cheekpieces are tried for the first time.
Regular on the fibresand and finished 1L third over 1m3f at Southwell on his penultimate start. Well beaten back on turf last time and the return to this trip should suit.
Finished runner-up over C&D on good-to-firm ground last July. Well held back here on seasonal debut last time out however and have to go back to July 2015 to find his most recent success.
Finished fourth over this trip at Catterick (good) last August. Disappointing in three subsequent outings including at Redcar (1m6f, good-to-firm) on last months seasonal debut.
Finished runner-up on both starts since joining this stable earlier this year. Latest of those came over an extended 1m4f at Newcastle earlier this month and he is one for the shortlist on this occasion.
Well held since finishing runner-up in a soft ground amateurs contest at Ayr (1m5f) last June. Others hold stronger claims.
