Dual winner earlier in the year at Yarmouth at up to a 1m he's merely underlined his inconsistency since then. Overdid the front-running tactics last time (did far too much) but disappointing still and one to treat with caution.
Course winner although the losing run continues to mount his last two runs have been better than they appear on paper. Went too hard the first time and failed to settle on his last run; ought to be capable off this reduced mark if a race goes his way
Losing run getting longer and longer (now up to 29) with a plummeting mark to work with although that doesn't appear to be having much effect at the moment. Hard to catch right and others provide a more persuasive argument.
This will be his third run back from wind surgery and would provide a welcome winner for a yard that is rather quiet at the moment. Good 2nd last time out at Chepstow over this trip and repeat of that run would bring him into the equation here.
Very lightly-raced for one of his age (6th start and 3rd in a handicap) and has shown only very modest form in this discipline so far. Second runner in the race for the yard and looks the least likely of the duo with the yard struggling for winners.
Yet to win a race (0-11) but has performed well twice before at this track (hampered here on her last visit). Turned in her best performance for a while last time at Chepstow although her finishing effort was a little weak; should be involved.
Profile has a rather uneven look about it running poorly last time following on from a decent C&D start the time before when taking the runner-up slot. Chances if she can/could reproduce that run but that's not a given; others appeal more.
Stepped forward on her previous form when third here last time out trying this trip for the first time (Kylie Style; 2nd). That was without a doubt her best form so far she now has to repeat and build on that though from 1lb out of the handicap.
Light-raced sort who remains a maiden and looks of little account based on her two handicap outings so far. Reportedly bled last time out and a watching brief would be recommended.
