Scored over C&D in October, when 2lb lower. Has twice equalled that effort since then back at this venue. Not seen since hampered and well held in a below par run here in February. Goes well fresh and has claims.
Last two wins have been here in a seller (1m½f) and then last time out in a claimer (C&D), by an emphatic 9L. Went close from 2lb higher in a handicap in May. Good draw here and looks a contender.
Won a 1m½f maiden here last year and added a Chelmsford handicap (1m) in March, when 6lb lower. Went close here over C&D last time. Nudged up 1lb for that, but can't be ruled out.
15-race maiden (0-4 on AW), though has made the frame at trips from 7f-1m2f. Ran well enough at Beverley last time. Same mark today, but still has fair bit to prove on this surface and over this shorter trip.
Tends to go best on turf when there is some ease in the ground, or on Southwell's slower Fibresand surface. 13lb lower than his latest win last year and struggling for form in 2018. Others preferred.
Made the frame on sole AW start (at Chelmsford, 6f, in September). Ran well on first two starts on turf this season, being just held at Leicester (6f) two starts ago. Out of sorts last time, but stable in form and she has claims now up in trip.
Went close on her first two runs in turf maidens (both 6f, good to firm) last year for Henry Candy. Only run remotely close to that form for this trainer came here, from 8lb higher. Headgear on. Has stamina to prove, but interesting if supported.
Scored here over 6f in novices' company last year, when with Tony Carroll. Form in handicaps has been patchy, but could be given a chance on one run for him and another, in May, for this trainer, if able to repeat.
0-8 on turf, but has equalled his career best of both his last two starts in soft ground handicaps over 6f. Should see out 7f on pedigree, so if he handles this surface and cheekpieces work, he could get heavily involved.
