Progressive for new yard winning three from four. Suffered defeat at this trip before seeming to benefit by return to 6f at Brighton when making all. Different ground and 8lb rise to overcome.
Yet to add to three wins last season but finally getting some help from the handicapper and likely to be competitive now down in grade. Stable also runs Victors Lady.
Mixed form this season and hasn't won now for over a year but has dropped to a very good mark. Tends to get too far back but place possibilities again.
Back to the same mark as when winning over this C&D last season and should be fitter for two runs back. Suited by these conditions and can go well.
C&D winner who drops to a very good mark and suited be these conditions but need to find improvement on recent Windsor run.
Ran on well to win on her third start when taking well to the fibresand. Represents a good trainer of sprinters but form of win only moderate and needs to find progress on handicap debut.
Onto his third trainer on only his fifth start. Disappointed on debut for new stable when failing to settle and needs to bounce back to be involved.
Took advantage of 5lb lower mark when handling cut at Nottingham but previous win came off this mark. Can hang right and threw things away on the bend at Lingfield but has pace and this could suit from the plum draw.
Remains 3lb higher than last winning mark and second in her last three starts. Did well from a wide draw over this C&D last time and likely to be competitive again.
