Bounced back to form when headed close home at here over C&D (good to firm) last week. Solid chance once again if able to back that up here down in a class 5 for the first time.
Had a couple of runs now this year so should be cherry ripe in terms of fitness. Slightly disappointing when sent off as favourite over C&D (behind Aleef) two weeks ago and tongue tie is now added.
Looked badly in need of the run on return at Carlisle (7f, good) two weeks ago when sent off favourite. Drop in trip is a big positive but slight suspicion is that she's at her best with a bit of give in the ground. Any rain would help.
Well below form on three starts for this yard now this year. Dropping to a very dangerous mark now and is likely to click at some point. Market check needed.
Ultra-consistent performer who always gives here all. Lost a show on the way to the start at Ayr last time and still ran well to be second. Same mark here and sure to go well again.
Well beaten on handicap debut at Newcastle (AW) last month. Well beaten on turf debut at Ayr (6f, good to firm) two weeks ago. Needs to do more to take a hand but lightly raced and improvement possible.
Still 3lb higher than when winning at Newcastle back in November. Two runs so far this year though have been disappointing and whilst she should be reaching her fitness peak, others are preferred here.
Has shaped like this mark will be workable on a couple of occasions. Blew the bend at Beverley (7½f, good) 11 days ago. Cheekpieces added now and can do better.
Beaten a long way on first start for over six months at Pontefract last week. Best efforts tend to come on soft ground so will be hoping for some rain to aid his chances.
Sole win came on the Fibresand at Southwell. Looks vulnerable here back down in trip and is 0/5 on turf. She is at least in pretty good form which is more than can be said for a few of these.
Mark starting to fall quite quickly as a result of some moderate efforts this season and now connections reach for eyeshields to try and turn things around. Looks more in hope and yard yet to really catch fire this season.
