Only had a couple of starts for this yard and has some wiggle room from his current mark. Capable of going well but not one for maximum faith on what we have seen so far this year.
Some promise on first three runs but ran pretty lazily when upped to this trip over C&D last time. Ran on late there suggesting that even further may be needed at this stage. Early days though and worth another try at this trip and cheekpieces added
Good winner over this trip at Ffos Las (good) two starts back but failed to follow up over slightly shorter at Wolverhampton three days ago under a 6lb penalty. Strong claims once again.
Shaped like a switch to handicaps would help in early starts but has been really disappointing so far. Mark continues to slide and Shane Kelly now back on board. Hard to fancy unless market screams his name.
Well backed and bounced readily back to form to win well at Chepstoew (1m2f, good to firm) last time. Only 5lb higher here and still early days so further improvement is highly likely.
Four starts so far this year and not been in the best of form. Goes significantly back up in trip here and needs that to unlock plenty of improvement now.
Won here over C&D three starts ago off a 5lb lower mark. Two subsequent efforts haven't been as good and may be a shade high in the weights now in a competitive race.
His effort here over C&D trwo starts back would suggest that he starts life in handicaps off a fairly decent mark. Every chance of some improvement now and sound each-way claims.
Much improved last time at Goodwood despite giving away a lot of ground early on. 1lb lower here but needs to back that up now and would have claims if doing so.
Career best effort when finishing third in a 1m2f handicap at Salisbury (firm) last month. Blinkers worn for the first time that day are retained.
Clearly seems to appreciate some cut in the ground so any rain will be a bonus. Not firing on all cylinders so far this year and mark is dropping as a result. Needs to do better but hard to fancy unless the heavens open.
