Fair hurdler for John Ferguson three years ago but has stood little racing since then. Joined current yard in December and has run moderately but come tumbling down the weights. Drop back in trip may well help but more needed.
Eased another 2lb following another below par effort last time over 1m4f. Shorter trip may help but still doesn't jump out as a winner-in-waiting.
Won over course and distance last summer and failed by a neck to win at Lingfield latest over a mile. In form and has plenty going for her so rates one for a short list.
Back to his last winning mark and has two good efforts from three starts this season, his only disappointment coming on easy ground. Yard among the winners and shouldn't be far away here.
Yet to reach a place in seven starts but ran best race to date when fourth at Yarmouth last time over a mile and certainly worth a try stepping up in trip this time. Worth a market check.
Well bred Holy Roman Emperor gelding makes his handicap bow after three runs at a mile. Wears first time cheekpieces and begins off a very modest rating.
Won over this trip at Lingfield in May and went well until late on over an extra furlong last time. Back at what appears to be optimum trip and has a solid each-way shout.
Last won on Flat in September 2015 and it's been hard going since then. Didn't do enough last time to suggest his ready to strike and has something to find.
Won a claimer over C&D in Ocotber but has run two shockers so far this year and has yet to beat a single horse. Very hard to enthuse over.
15-race maiden who passed a few late on last time but on balance looks an unlikley hero and a place may be the best he can hope for.
17 races so far and has yet to even reach a place, so a victory seems a real longshot. Not disgraced last time at Bath but faces a tough task.
Hasn't won for a long time but has dropped down the weights and showed a little more of her old form when fourth recently at Brighton. Decent apprentice booked as well.
Beaten a long way on all starts and although it might be too early to rule out any chance of improvement, she has to turn over a completely new leaf to have any chance of getting competitive.
