On a 15-race losing streak and only once placed this year when third in a five runner race three starts back. Hard to recommend with any confidence here.
C&D winner back in April has rarely run badly this season on turf which is a positive given his AW record is far better. Latest second of 10 at Leicester particularly positive and rates a leading contender now back here.
1m½f winner at Wolverhampton in penultimate start and ran well subsequently when second over 1m at Chelmsford. Gets 2lb back now and been in good form so very much one for the shortlist again.
Followed thirds at Chelmsford and over C&D with a second at Wolverhampton most recently over 1m4f, mark remaining the same throughout as it does here so sure to go well once again and looks a leading contender.
Placed in five of seven starts this season including recent Lingfield second albeit he was beaten 12L there. Handicap is certainly workable now and he looks a fair each-way proposition once more.
14 races and almost two years since he last won. 3L fifth over C&D just last Friday and with no change to his mark he is unlikely to improve that greatly here.
24-race maiden has been placed in his last six starts including a C&D second and 1m4f third here the last twice. Obviously a little risky from a win perspective but hard to ignore each-way potential.
Not beaten far into sixth over C&D penultimately but disappointing next at Yarmouth when well beaten. Cheekpieces and return to AW potential positives but risky proposition overall.
Ended a 26 month losing run when comfortably scoring at Chelmsford latest over 1m2f. Up 6lb for that success but still probably on a workable mark if confidence has now been boosted so very much one to consider.
