Won first time out this campaign over 1m3½f at Windsor. Probably didn't stay 1m6f at Sandown next but ran better than bare form latest when not clear run late on. Each-way possibilities.
Ordinary form in three novice contests to date. Steps into handicaps now but not done enough to recommend him off joint top-weight.
Improved since stepped up to today's trip with a win and a second at Salisbury both on fast ground. Similar conditions here and another bold bid likely with her seemingly on the upgrade.
Just ordinary form in three novice events before winning a three-runner handicap at Yarmouth. Doubtful that form amounts to much but should have at least boosted confidence and may benefit for extra 2f today.
Third in his last three starts all over different distances. Belatedly gets 1lb back but the 7lb his apprentice rider takes off could make a difference as he seems at the mercy of the handicapper lately.
Put some disappointing efforts in handicap company behind him when finishing a neck second in a 1m2f claimer at Windsor recently. More needed back in handicap company and lone win came on AW.
Comfortably her best effort so far latest when 5¾L fifth of eight at Nottingham. Steps up in trip now for handicap debut and shrewd trainer is always respected with such types so no surprise if she improves again.
Stepped up successfully to this trip at Lingfield (AW) last time, getting off the mark with authority. Carries a penalty, but could do better now the penny has dropped, and cheekpieces may also help eek out more.
