Only win came in maiden company but looked suited by this C&D when third last time. Has been slowly away the last twice and that is costing her but now drops to a really good mark.
Didn't run badly considering his slow start over 6f here last time and worth a step back up in trip. Remains 4lb higher than last winning mark but can be competitive.
Gets to race off a 12lb lower mark on the AW but yet to convince on an artificial surface and still has to prove he stays this far.
Only having a second start on the AW but form has become regressive and tailed off the last twice. Remains best watched.
Not disgraced at Chelmsford before being tailed off back on turf but showed he's worth keeping on the AW when fourth over a mile here last time. Didn't quite see out the trip and this should prove spot on.
Left his previous form behind when showing the benefits of wind surgery and a hood (retained) with an easy win over a mile here on handicap debut. Up 9lb but should have much more to offer.
Zoffany filly cost £62,000 as a yearling and has failed to build on debut when tailed off the last twice. Needs major improvement on handicap debut following an absence.
Won on racecourse debut at Ayr but things haven't panned out to much avail since and tailed off on first run following wind surgery.
Veteran performer who has failed to take advantage of a falling mark this season and proved unsuited by the drop to 6f last time. This distance suits better but more required.
Had been running to a solid level before a very poor run over this C&D. Down 2lb but probably needs more help from the handicapper before we see him winning again.
Broke through on start 20 over this C&D when the race fell apart late on and ran to a similar level when a close fifth here last time. More required off current mark but can be competitive again.
Veteran who hasn't won since 2016 and on the balance of his recent form is nowhere near the force of old despite plummeting in the weights. Tries this trip for the first time very late in his career.
Gelded son of Dream Ahead who was well held in his first three starts over different distances and doesn't appeal on handicap debut.
