Yarmouth winner over 1m1f last month, but was only third of five on his return to that C&D off 4lb higher. Runs off the same mark and drops in trip.
Winner over C&D in April, last year, but has failed to add to that success. The handicapper has dropped him 5lb to that winning mark so he has a sound chance if putting his best foot forward.
Has lost his way this year and it seems that age is catching up with this winner of 17 races. Readily opposed even though he likes this venue.
Back in the winner's enclosure when scoring by 3L over C&D a week ago. Has to go on the short list under her 6lb penalty.
Series of good efforts since undergoing wind surgery, including when scoring over 7f at this course last month. Has quite a bit to find with Solveig's Song on latest running, however.
Still seeking her first win after 29 attempts. Handicap mark continues to collapse, but no obvious reason why she should end her losing run.
