Consistent sort for Jarlath Fahey, gaining second win of year in a 1m2½f claimer at Sligo in June; best showing for current yard when front-running second over 1¼m at Epsom last time. Drop in trip expected to be no problem at this stiff track.
Not straightforward, and her only win to date came in maiden company, but running well enough in handicaps of late to give her every chance here, and yard in fine form.
Respected on the form he showed when winning a 1m Windsor handicap off 1lb lower in June, but he's finished weakly on all three starts since, and disappointing given he was handed a soft lead at Sandown last time.
Been a good servant to the yard over the years and has won his share of low-grade events, but has only beaten a handful of horses home in four starts this year, looking a shadow of his former self in the process.
Best effort to date came when placed in a 7f maiden here last summer, and back on track when 3½L fifth of 9 to Cascella in extended 1m handicap at Leicester last time. Potentially well treated if he can back that up.
Has saved her best form for Windsor so far, but record is patchy, and she ran poorly after a break at that venue last time, albeit not helped by being held up in a tactical contest.
Runner-up twice in 1m handicaps at Bath in June, but just a respectable fourth of 7 in a C&D amateur event last time. Needs to find his best form to score here.
Comfortable winner of a 1m handicap at Brighton last September, and excuses on final 2017 outing, but he's been well held in two runs this year, and others more compelling again.
Sprung a shock when off the mark at the 25th attempt at Lingfield (7f) in June, and won again there on penultimate start. Runner-up there last time, but beaten 7L, and more required now.
