Disappointing in two starts since finishing fourth over 1m at Carlisle (good-to-firm) in June including in claiming company last time out.
Improving with racing this term and registered a fourth career success when winning over C&D on good ground last month. One to note despite a 3lb rise in the weights.
Finished runner-up over C&D on her two most recent starts. Beaten 3½L on good ground last time out and likely to run well once more.
Sole success came on second start at two. Held on all four starts since joining this yard and worth a check in the market stepping up in distance.
Dual winner this season most recently over C&D just under two weeks ago. Held up that day and an interesting contender off a 2lb higher mark.
Ended last season in good form with three consecutive placed efforts. Struggled in two starts this term however. Market support would be significant in this contest.
Placed in a novice contest over 6f here in May. Struggled since however including on handicap debut over 6f here last time out. Stepping up in trip.
Decent fourth over C&D on good ground at the end of last month. Handicap mark is gradually coming down and has won off a much higher mark in the past.
Pulled up on final outing of last season and well beaten on all six starts this term. Well handicapped on his old form but others hold stronger claims.
