Scored here over 1m½f in April, when 6lb lower. Has won from a higher mark once on turf, but keeps finding one or two too good. Beaten ½L from this mark at Leicester last time and needs to eek out a bit more.
Goes well here and scored over 1m½f in May, when 5lb lower. Well held on turf last time (1m2f) and returns here with stamina to prove, while also needs to show a bit of improvement. Not ruled out.
Both wins have been on good to soft on turf (5f/7f), the latter from this mark on October. Not far off that level on her first two runs for this trainer, but not sure she got home over slightly further last time, so has a bit to do.
Came good at Ffos Las (1m2f) last time, when a comfortable scorer under this pilot. 6lb penalty to shoulder here, but improving and should give a very good account in trying to follow up.
Triple winner here, the last two over C&D. Not as good as he once was, but has been building towards this in a couple of runs this year and from 3lb higher than that latest C&D win, he needs taking seriously.
Sole win came in a Chelmsford maiden (1m2f) in October 2015 and losing run since now amounts to 16. Impossible to recommend him on recent evidence.
1-16, his sole win being here over 1m6f in March, when 4lb lower. Not disgraced back over shorter last time, but even though stepped back up a bit in trip, not sure he will have the speed for this.
Yet to develop any consistency, but was 2L third from 1lb lower at Kempton (1m) in July. Is worth another try back up at this sort of trip (well beaten last time) and could be a player here.
Improved a bit with each run until getting off the mark with a bit in hand over C&D last time. Up 6lb for that, but should make a bold bid to follow up with a favourable draw to help.
