20:45 Chelmsford City Thu 11 October 2018
Won off 7lb lower over this C&D and a bit below that when upped in grade here on last start for Warren Greatrex. Likely to be involved back in class on stable debut.
Veteran whose last win on the Flat came back in 2012. Has largely been campaigned over hurdles since and was tailed off on his return to the Flat at Chester. Easy to oppose.
Lightly-raced after just six starts and was staying on well when upped in distance here last start. More to offer upped in trip again and has more upside than most.
13-race maiden under all codes but better when suited by the step up in trip at Redcar. Hit the line well and likely more to come over this even stiffer test. Rates a contender.
Would hold every chance based on Beverley third and stays this trip, however subsequent two efforts have been disappointing and needs to find more.
Just one win in 23 starts and has clearly been hard to train with his last two starts coming after 247 and 453 day absences. Hasn't featured for a long time and readily overlooked.
Yet to place after six starts but has been a bit unlucky the last twice, when slipping at Yarmouth and meeting trouble at Lingfield. Open to improvement now stepped up in distance once again.
Showed promise over 1m1f at Lingfield but has since failed to build on that in two starts over further. Remains lightly-raced but stamina to prove over this big step up in distance.
Bred to need a stiff test of stamina so possible he could leave his form behind over much shorter. Hard to recommend after being tailed off in all three starts but support would be interesting.
