Scored over C&D last month and was successful again at Bath off 4lb higher last week. More to do under a 6lb penalty, but is in great heart and has to enter calculations.
Behind Molly Jones over C&D last month and has run well in two subsequent races at Bath. Gets a big weight pull with the top weight and may well turn the form round.
Not getting any younger, but has won 16 times including on three occasions on the AW last autumn/winter. Form seems to be on the slide, but falling mark offers hope if the fire still burns.
Winner of six races, but on a lengthy losing run. Inching down the weights, but recent efforts have not hinted at an imminent return to the winner's enclosure.
Cut little ice in her only start in handicap company at Kempton in October. Returns from a lengthy absence and can only be watched unless the market speaks in her favour.
Back-to-back wins over 6f on the AW in 2016 remain his only successes. Not disgraced off higher marks recently, but his lack of victories is offputting.
Lightly-raced gelding whose only run in handicap company saw him well held at Leicester over a year ago. Plenty to prove after his spell on the sidelines. Represents last year's winning stable.
Wore cheekpieces for the first time when down the field at Bath on her latest run in May. Blinkers tried on this occasion, but is hard to fancy despite her plummeting handicap mark.
Out of sorts lately and was well behind Molly Jones at Bath last week. Others make more appeal.
Still a maiden after 31 starts. Last of 11 at Wolverhampton last time and is tried in blinkers for the first time.
Has failed to hit the frame in eight races, including over C&D on latest outing. No reason to expect that sequence to change.
