Given a tricky draw here in stall 13 and didn't appear to appreciate the drop to this distance last time. Has something to prove now and makes limited appeal off this mark.
In better form as a juvenile winning on three occasions (twice in selling company) but has yet to recapture those heights this year. Took a strong hold when running poorly over 7f here last time and questions to answer.
A winner on his last run for his previous yard (Richard Hannon) over this trip he's yet to show the same level of form for his new handler. Remains 2lb above his winning mark and needs others to misfire to have a chance.
An interesting sort who is only lightly-raced (still a maiden) but showed on his AW handicap debut that he could have something to offer. Not that well treated but could build on that run with some improvement likely.
Her last run when 3rd at Nottingham proved that she had trained and given that she didn't get the clearest of runs that performance may be a little better than it looks. Quite nicely drawn she can go well again here and looks to be involved.
Has run with credit on all four occasions this year without winning but looks to have a win in him having met one who looked well handicapped last time. Off the same mark here and should run well if he can avoid hanging under pressure this time.
Makes his handicap debut having had just the three runs in total and one for this yard where he showed very little over 7f. Not one to be that interested in given what he's shown so far and best watched for now.
From a stable in good form he's struggling to find his form at the moment even when tried in a visor last time. Fairly-lightly raced and could yet be capable of better but hasn't as yet shown enough to be a betting proposition here.
Found some form from out of the blue when winning at Redcar (made all) and travelling with real zest. Won't find life as easy here up 5lb in the handicap and from a wider draw; may be more difficult to dominate.
Lightly-raced and still a maiden she made her handicap debut last time but remains with little form to her name. Raced quite freely and others are given far more chance with improvement required.
On the evidence of his first run for this yard it will be the same story for this stable as it was for his previous yard. Doesn't really look one to be interested in from 2lb out of the handicap and tongue-tie back on.
