21:15 Wolverhampton Fri 12 October 2018
Hinted at a return to form when runner-up at Kempton (7f) last month, but couldn't build on that effort last time, and now 2lb higher in the weights. Still well treated on old form, but risks apparent.
Won twice here last year, and presumably amiss when last to finish over 1m1½f here in December. On the comeback trail now, and market should be useful.
Rattled off a hat-trick at Newcastle in November 2017 but very disappointing since, and failed to beat a rival on return from a break there late last month.
Has won over C&D in the past, but never the easiest to win with at the best of times, and he's been running below his best for most of the year. Well enough treated, but takes a leap of faith to back him on current form.
Not at best on his last couple of starts, but now 3lb lower than when beaten less than 2L at Ayr in August, and no surprise to see him bounce back in a moderate affair.
Won over C&D in May, and now 1lb lower after a series of respectable efforts. Needs to up his game to regain winning thread, but folly to ignore from current mark.
Best effort to date when fifth in a 1m novice at Chelmsford last time, but well enough beaten there, and needs more to be competitive now handicapping.
Fairly treated on form of her runs in qualifying, but she has proved a major disappointment since sent handicapping, and she failed to do any better over 1m at Newcastle last time.
Three runs in novice/maiden company have not been devoid of promise, and she may well have needed the run when well held on handicap debut at Chelmsford. This run should reveal more.
Won three times over C&D in 2015, and scored at Chelmsford last winter. Struggling for form this year, but has fallen to a basement mark, and return to this venue gives him a squeak.
Bounced back to form when twice making the frame at Chelmsford last month, and posted another respectable effort at Brighton last time. One of the likelier types on paper.
