Improved on last year's debut when beaten less than 3L at Catterick (6f, good) on his reappearance last month. Can go on from that and has each-way claims here.
Made a promising debut this time last year, but has been unable to go on from there yet. Interesting that connections have chosen to stick with maidens when he now has a handicap mark. Not ruled out, but more needed.
A consistent performer in defeat last season, but remains a maiden after six attempts. Below par on reappearance in a Chester handicap (6f, good) last month and not easy to see her being up to winning now switched back into a maiden.
Beaten 4L in Listed company last November and, while not yet at that level this year, she ran well behind a clear cut winner here last time. A repeat effort should see her go very close.
50-1 and always in rear when beaten over 10l at Doncaster (5f, soft) on her recent debut. Impossible to make a case for her here on that evidence.
Showed significant improvement on her second and most recent start at Musselburgh in August. Still needs plenty more than that to get involved here on her reappearance and will make greater appeal when she has a handicap mark.
Third foal. Half-sister to Group-placed 7f two-year-old winner Kings Guest and US 1m¼f dirt winner Al Musaddad, out of a 1m2¾f winner. Stable in decent form, so can't rule out a good debut, though makes appeal over further on pedigree.
12-1 and was keen up front before weakening to be beaten over 6L on debut at Doncaster recently. Might be capable of better both for that run, this step up up in trip and a sound surface. Could make an impact.
Half-sister to 7f winner Sakash, out of a 1m4f winner. Stable quiet enough at the moment and she looks one to watch on debut.
