Probably did better than his finishing position suggests last time when he raced too close to a strong pace at Pontefract over this trip. First-time he's been seen in this grade and that makes him of interest off a decent mark.
Wind surgery looked as though it might have done the trick when he ran well on his return from that op (ran poorly next time). Given a break he turned in a career-best to win over C&D; up 4lb but should still be involved.
Lightly-raced but improved dropped to 6f here in a first-time visor only getting caught late on by one ridden with a bit more restraint. Now brought back to the minimum trip in a slightly easier grade; one to note in the market.
C&D winner who hasn't been seen much of late and ran poorly on the AW when last seen at the beginning of the year returning from a break. One best watched for now against some race-fit rivals.
Dual C&D winner who was in better form at the mid to end of last year winning twice with both wins coming with cut in the ground. Not seen since running poorly twice on the Fibresand earlier in the year; others preferred.
A fall to below his last winning mark encouraged a return to form on his penultimate start over C&D; again ran with credit last time over C&D. Suspicion that he may be able to produce a little more but this is a higher grade in which to try.
Showed his best form for a while (debut for yard) last time out in a C&D selling handicap off a 2lb lower mark. Headgear worn before again left off but will find life tougher forcing the pace back out of his last lowly company; not written off.
Continues to show little for this yard after his transfer from Ian Jardine and well beaten over C&D last time behind Our Place In Loule. Cheekpieces on for the first-time but makes very little appeal even at this level.
0-10 so far is her career record and tried in blinkers for the first-time on her last start and ran far too freely. Best efforts have come at 5f but she would need a few of these to fail to record her first win in this.
