Scored after a break at Newcastle (6f) in October for sole success, but has looked rusty in two starts this season. Usual cheekpieces left off last time, so may do better having dropped in the weights.
Inconsistent for Dave Evans, but has run creditably in three outings for current yard under today's rider. In pretty shallow waters here, so ought to maintain current vein of form, and one to consider.
Out of a winning half-sister to multiple 7f winner Kakatosi, and has shown ability in qualifying runs at shorter. Did good late work at Carlisle last time, and open to improvement handicapping at this trip.
Showed improved form starting out for new yard at Chelmsford in May. Form of that race has taken a few knocks since, but she's low-mileage and may still be improving, so not taken lightly.
Closely related to connections' 1½m winner Moshe and half-sister to Cumberland Lodge winner Move Up. Still looked to be learning when fourth over 6f here on handicap bow, and step up in trip sure to suit on pedigree.
Course winner who struggled on first start for current yard when making reappearance at Nottingham (5f) in May, and fared no better upped to 6f here next time. Plenty to prove.
Remains a maiden after plenty of chances, and while he made a bright enough start for current yard, he's not gone on from it, and ran a stinker at Lingfield last time.
Has gone well here in the past, with two course wins to his name, but regressive form in handicaps in recent seasons, and latest third came in a weakly-contested claimer.
A poor maiden on balance of form for Pat Phelan, running badly last time, and looks to have plenty on his plate starting out for a new stable here.
Ran respectably on return from a break at Bath in May, but not built on that in two subsequent starts, and tailed off when favourite at Brighton on latest start. Needs to bounce back.
Failed to distinguish herself in three qualifying starts, and fared no better with cheekpieces fitted for handicap debut at Chepstow last time.
Best effort when 2¼L second of 8 to Da Capo Dandy at Southwell in March, but he's not built on that, and lesser efforts here of late. Opposable on balance.
