Did not show any marked improvement on nursery debut, although she was stuck wide throughout. Down another couple of pounds but still hard to see her defying topweight.
Has shown plenty of speed on a couple of occasions on AW tracks. Lost her chance when hampered at the start last week. Down to a level where she has a chance to shine if getting an uncontested lead.
Showed promise here on nursery debut and then dominated weaker opposition at Chelmsford. Had more in hand than the official verdict and the handicapper has been generous. A 3lb rise is offset by top claimer's allowance.
Had shown plenty of pace in better company ahead of his nursery debut when backed to beat Sylvia's Mother. Stumbled out of the stalls that day and he was never able to land a blow. Blinkers now replace cheekpieces.
Has finished last on three latest starts including last month's nursery debut. Needs to rediscover her debut form to have any chance.
Beaten by wide margins on all three starts to date. Has a chance to show more now handicapping and with stable in such good form.
Has been plying her trade in France without success. Best effort on these shores came at Bath in July and she looks held by Thegreyvtrain judged on that effort.
Has been busy in recent weeks over longer trips than this. Beaten six times off this mark or lower so up against it this afternoon.
Well in rear on all four starts including last month's nursery debut. Drops to the minimum trip and blinkers applied this time.
Stimulation filly out of a winning half-sister to owners' Group 3 5f winner Just Glamorous. The speed in the pedigree has not been evident thus far, but she may show more now handicapping at this trip.
Exposed as a moderate performer, and while she ran just about her best race when second in a Wolverhampton nursery last time, she was still beaten 6L by the winner, and has place claims at best here.
Has only shown a modest level of ability in three starts. No surprise to see her show more on handicap debut over this trip and with cheekpieces fitted.
Stepped up last time on nursery debut despite hanging for much of the trip. Hood fitted now to correct that and so she cannot be discounted.
Cheap purchase has finished last on each start. Hard to see cheekpieces making that much difference from 12lb out of the weights.
