Completed a hat-trick of wins in the summer and has been quite highly tried since. Clear form pick dropped to this much lower level.
Scored over 1m4½f at this venue in August, but has been held off higher marks in two subsequent outings. Bit to do at these weights and would prefer a longer trip.
Wore cheekpieces for the first time when winning a Redcar seller last time. The headgear is retained and he warrants respect in his current mood.
One or two bits of fair form this season, but mainly over further. Needs to find more and connections reach for cheekpieces.
String of ordinary efforts this season and has plenty to find at these weights. Hopes rest on a first-time visor sparking dramatic improvement.
Remote last of eight on debut in a novice event at Catterick. Hard to make a case for despite this immediate drop in class.
Two handicap successes this season and has generally performed with credit. Each-way claims dropped to a seller for his top trainer/jockey combination.
Shortish prices and not disgraced on three starts since joining this yard from Ireland. Plenty to do on these terms, however, and first-time cheekpieces need to eke out improvement.
Remains a maiden after 24 starts, but ran a decent race to be fourth at Ayr four days ago. Not out of this, although lack of success is offputting.
Beaten out of sight on only start at Hamilton last month. Impossible to recommend and is likely to be the rank outsider.
