20-race maiden has run well in last two starts on AW at Wolverhampton with a third and second (latest). Not run on turf this season but seems in good order so chances if as effective.
Lingfield AW winner in February has showed precious little since. Now 1lb below that winning mark but need to see some encouragement before recommending him.
Second off this mark twice at Brighton (7f and 1m2f) before finding Newmarket contest tougher. Third in a seller back at Brighton latest was a shade disappointing as favourite. Blinkers fitted now to try and eek out more.
Lightly raced gelding was tailed off in lone start this campaign back in March. Had wind-surgery since and also wears a first-time tongue strap. Nothing in form to suggest but plenty of firsts so hopefully something makes a difference.
15-race maiden was third in a couple of turf races earlier in the season on soft ground before lesser efforts on AW last twice while turf ground been unsuitable. Well-treated on best form now and wears first-time blinkers.
Beaten some 31L into last over C&D when last seen on turf. AW form overall seems stronger so leap of faith required to get involved here.
Relatively unexposed as a handicapper with this just his third start in the sphere and first on turf. Some promise in Chelmsford third but lesser effort latest. Fitted with first-time cheekpieces here but bit to find in them.
Showed pace in three Novice events without seriously getting involved where it matters. Steps into this quite ordinary handicap now and jockey booking is signal of intentions. Intriguing contender.
C&D winner two starts back almost overcame 4lb rise when second next up on the AW at Chelmsford. Gets a further 2lb here but seems on the up. Softer ground a complete unknown.
1m winner here this term and knows his way around having had six races here this season alone. Fourth here last time out a fair effort and now only 1lb higher than last win so some hope.
Unplaced in nine career races. Managed a fourth of 14 at Lingfield on stable debut latest although he was beaten 9L. 1lb out of the handicap and makes little appeal.
Unplaced in all five career races and last in four of them including latest start over 7f here. First-time visor probably fitted in hope more than expectation.
Unplaced in all eight starts and 50/1 or above in all of them. Had a break since remote ninth of 11 here when last seen. More head-gear added but hard to make any case for her.
Showed little in three starts to date, all Novice contests. Some late progress in last start at Wolverhampton and starts out off low-weight in very moderate contest so better is expected.
Made little impression in first handicap here over 6f last time out and no encouragement in prior three races so hard to fancy.
