Has failed to build on stable winning debut having been well below that in two starts since. Drop back to this grade will help but stamina query at this trip.
Last win came over this C&D off just 2lb lower and caught the eye last time when not getting a clear run. Looks to be building up to another win and any rain would be a welcome bonus.
On a long losing run dating back to 2015. Handicap mark continues to plummet but hard to make a case for on current form. Stable also run Auxillary.
The last four of his five career wins have come over this distance and goes well here. Has dropped to a favourable mark and could run well back up to this trip.
Tends to race too freely but it didn't stop her for a breakthrough win. Form is nothing special but she is only up 2lb and once she learns to settle is on a dangerously low mark for this trainer.
Makes a quick reappearance after justifying market support to win a two mile contest with loads in hand. Should have plenty more to offer despite 6lb penalty and looks the one to beat.
Twice a C&D winner in 2014 but not the same performer nowadays and on a long run of poor form. Remains best watched.
Daughter of Swiss Spirit bought for £28,000 at the sales as a yearling but well beaten in all three starts. Takes a significant step up in distance for handicap debut but difficult to make a case for.
