Visored for the first time when fourth of seven in a Haydock handicap on latest start. Cheekpieces are tried this time and he is one to consider dropped in grade off 4lb lower.
Has been around the block a few times, but is useful on his day as he showed when scoring well at Carlisle this time last year. Well beaten on return to action at Hamilton last month and needs to step forward, even at this lower level.
Three-times winner over this distance, on each occasion on the Wolverhampton AW. He is rated 7lb lower on turf, but has not done enough recently to suggest he will be winning this.
Only win in 27 runs came in April, 2016. Inching down the weights and recent runs have been positive so she is one to take a second look at.
One wins in 20 starts, but showed more when fitted in a visor and third of 14 over 1m at Newcastle last time. LIkes to race prominently, so this drop in trip and class with the headgear retained might see him get involved.
Shed his maiden tag at Wolverhampton in October and has generally run with credit since. Second of 15 in a better race at Nottingham last time and has to be considered off the same rating.
Winner of 10 races who is approaching the veteran stage. Two recent wins at Hamilton, the latter at this level, show the fire still burns and he is afforded respect off a fair mark.
Found 7f too far when last of 15 at Wetherby, but had previously run creditably to be fourth of 11 over this trip at Catterick. Dropping down the weights and wears a hood for this venture into selling company.
Fair third in a C&D seller in May, but was well held back in handicap company at Carlisle. On a fair mark and is not out of it.
Well beaten on last two starts over 5f at Ayr. Only win came over this distance and she is no forlorn hope for a stable which has struck form in the last few days.
Dual AW winner for Anthony Carson and ran perfectly respectably in a 7f handicap at Yarmouth earlier this month. First start for this stable and is fitted with a visor for the first time. Considered.
Has been running well without getting her head in front in recent races, but her consistency means her handicap mark has been unchanged. Sound each-way chance again dropped in class.
Catterick handicap winner over this distance in June, but could not replicate that display at Brighton last time. Back on her winning mark so a case can be made.
Seven-times winner who holds his form well despite his advancing years. Has been running on the AW and has not won for some time, but is nicely weighted and is not ruled out.
Has failed to hit the frame in seven starts from 5f to 1m. Hard to recommend despite the fitting of blinkers for the first time.
Landed a Southwell seller in January and has not been disgraced in subsequent outings. Below her last winning mark, but has never won on turf.
