No impression on first try at this trip here last start and continues to race totally out of form. Others readily preferred.
Ran well here on debut but has seemingly regressed since and well beaten here on latest run. Needs to improve significantly on first start since wind surgery and with the first-time hood.
Six-race maiden who looked like he was progressing when just caught late on at Catterick, however was well below that at Ayr following a break and needs to bounce back.
First-time blinkers had the desired effect when winning over this C&D but disappointed over a mile here subsequently. Hard to purely blame the distance and perhaps the headgear didn't have the same effect.
Move from David Barron to Tony Coyle but never really got going in four starts and was well beaten in a Leicester seller. Best watched on stable debut.
Without a win since scoring at Southwell (5f) on debut in April 2016 but back to form with placed efforts of late. Drop in trip a positive and should be involved if taking his chance. Declared Wolverhampton on Thursday.
Won over this C&D in January and has held his form off the revised mark with two placed efforts here over a mile. Both wins came over this distance and likely to go close again.
Has run into form in three starts since returning from hurdles and went close to gaining a third win over this C&D. Should be involved again off the same mark.
Been running consistently well this summer without winning before disappointing at Thirsk. Sole win came over 6f here and while he could bounce back, he is proving hard to win with.
Just two wins from 34 starts, although both came over this C&D. Questionable in a finish and disappointed here last time. Others preferred.
Dual winner over this distance for Kevin Ryan but needs to find plenty following new stable debut. Plummeting in the handicap but remains best watched.
Sole AW win came at Southwell but tends to reserve her best for Beverley. Very disappointing at that track on latest start and easy to oppose.
Former Andrew Balding inmate who has shown nothing in four starts for new stable. Easy to overlook after failing to get into the money in 10 career runs.
Remains a maiden after 10 starts and has a huge amount to find on balance of form so far. Slightly better at Southwell latest and may prove better returning there.
