Won a Wetherby handicap (1m, good to firm) in June from a mark of 55, but has been well held in all three starts since. Has a tough enough task at the weights with some opponents and arrives in a seller with a fair bit to prove now.
Won a C&D (soft) handicap last season and followed up at Nottingham (6f, good) under a penalty. Handicapper largely in control since then. Ran well from this mark in a Chepstow handicap three starts ago and is a likely player now in this grade.
1-20, having scored over this trip at Wolverhampton last November, from a mark of 55. Has run some respectable races in defeat both on turf and AW this year and although he is not favoured by these weights, he could have a say if the headgear works.
Won two 6f sellers last year at Wolverhampton and Ripon, when with Richard Fahey. Badly out of sorts in three runs for this trainer (5f-7f) this season. Last of 12 over this trip last time and looks up against it on that evidence.
Well held in a Chester novice event and then a C&D seller last time. Can only watch.
Second in three successive novice auction events as a juvenile (6f-7f) last year. Supported prior to seasonal reappearance at Carlisle (6f, good to firm) last month, when beaten over 8L. Looks to have decent claims now dropped in at this level.
