Has now won here three times having been successful over 5½ last week. 6lb penalty makes life tougher but more than capable off this sort of mark in the past so leading contender once again.
Won off 1lb lower at Beverley around this time last year. Looked in need of the run when down the field here last month on the back of a long break. Should be fitter now and a better showing is highly likely.
Bounced right back to form the last twice and went very close at Chepstow last time when reverting to the visor. Blinkers back on today (worked well time before) and sound claims once again off just 1lb higher.
Got the better of Broadhaven Honey at Chepstow before finishing behind Archimedes here last time under a 6lb penalty. Bang in form and likely to give it another good go.
Is starting to look very dangerously handicapped but his recent form is just not good enough to be considered. Strong market support would probably change that opinion though.
Yet to hit the frame in five starts in handicaps. Mark has dropped a total of 10lb in that time so starting to look reasonably well treated. Returns from a lengthly absence here and would only be of interest if the market spoke in her favour.
Hasn't been seen since January and was badly out of sorts on the AW at the time. Another one that is lurking on a dangerous mark and starts life for a new yard today. Market strength would be interesting.
Likes quick ground and should be cherry ripe now after a couple of runs. Capable off this basement mark on a going day so not completely dismissed.
