Promise in three maidens in 2016 including final start over C&D when third. Obviously had issues aplenty to be off since and tall order to win after such an absence.
Ran on over 5f on debut before probably not staying 7f next in two starts to date but makes very belated return to action here so questions aplenty about fitness and form not persuasive enough to chance it.
Beaten out of sight latest over 1m4f after showing little over 7f in first start. Now drops back 50 per cent in trip but suggest more in hope than optimism.
Only raced once and tailed-off last in that May 2017 race when trained by Bill Turner. Hard to know what to expect after such a long absence but hard to find any positives.
Promise in all of his three starts but disappointing after a break latest at Brighton. Since had a wind-op which could explain the problem last time so very easily could bounce back now and merits consideration in a weak contest.
50,000gns yearling by Dutch Art is a brother to two winners both at two so it's somewhat surprising we haven't seen him until now. Probably best watched on belated debut.
Improved effort latest after a break when third of six at Chelmsford albeit beaten 9¼L where he was ½L ahead of Tamerlane. Stable won last two running's of this race and ought to go well again with this colt.
Some promise first time up at Lingfield when fourth but no obvious excuses next when last of 12 at Kempton. That leaves a few question marks over her here and needs to bounce back.
Never sighted on debut at Chelmsford when tailed off and beaten some 27L into last of six. Huge improvement needed to play any part here.
Well beaten fourth of 11 on debut at Salisbury but running a good race next at Ffos Las over 7½f until tiring late on and dropping to sixth. Looked sure to appreciate this drop back in trip here and could very easily be involved.
Gradual improvement in three turf starts culminating in a Chepstow second but performed at a lesser level next when down the field at Kempton switched to AW. Back on turf here she could very easily bounce back and rates a big player.
Almost pulled up on debut when last and similarly poor next when last beaten 16L. Very hard to fancy on those two poor runs.
