Improved on seasonal debut when finishing 1L third at Hamilton (6f, soft) in June. Absent since and best efforts have come on ground quicker than forecast.
In good form so far this season and was a C&D winner by a nose on good ground last time. Raised 3lb for that success and of interest once more.
Held on both starts in the spring most recently over 6f at Chepstow (soft) in early June. Interesting to see how he fares on his return from a break.
Justified favouritism when victorious over C&D on good-to-firm ground a month ago. Held off this 3lb higher mark here subsequently and interesting to see how he fares.
Disappointing in two starts since finishing third over 5f at Newcastle last November. Debuting for a new yard on seasonal debut.
Returning from a break when weakening into seventh in a 7f contest at Wolverhampton last month. Shapes as if a return to this trip will suit.
Beaten just a head over C&D on good-to-firm ground a month ago. Well beaten in a first time tongue tie (absent here) subsequently and one to note with a visor fitted for the first time.
Held in recent starts including over C&D last time out. Handicap mark is falling as a result but best efforts have come over 5f.
Promising handicap debut when beaten 3L into third at Doncaster (6f, soft) in April. Well held over 5f on the AW on only subsequent outing and remains open to improvement back up in trip on her return to turf.
Ran well to finish runner-up over C&D on good-to-firm ground in June. Disappointing here subsequently and others hold more obvious claims.
Handicap mark is falling following some moderate efforts this season. Finished mid-division in first time cheekpieces (retained) over 5f here last time and probably best watched at present.
Maiden after six starts but signs of possible improvement when 5L sixth over 7f on good ground here last time. Wears a hood for the first time.
