Back on the up for current yard, winning two of last three handicap starts, and dug deep to repel the runner-up when scoring over C&D last time. Just 2lb higher, and sure to go well again.
Both wins have come on easy ground at Goodwood, the latest in September over this trip. and again ran well when fourth of 16 to Bernardo O'Reilly at Newbury last time. Beaten favourite on previous try here, which has been her only AW run to date.
Won a Windsor maiden and a Bath novice last July, both over an extended 5f. Ran well on nursery debut when last seen, but off 14 months since, which tempers confidence. Market may guide.
Finished an excellent third in the Stewards' Sprint at Goodwood in August, but below that form on four starts since. Again not disgraced here last time, but merely seems to be marking time.
Posted a sixth AW win when scoring over C&D last month. Ran respectably under a penalty at Wolverhampton last time, but is a further 1lb higher here, and others appeal as being better handicapped.
Ran well when runner-up at Chester in September, but has lost his edge in two starts since, albeit with some excuse on both occasions. Having his eighteenth run of the year here, and has possibly had enough for the time being.
Has won twice at Brighton this season, and while he's not in the best of form of late, he's not really had the rub of the green, and is expected to fare better from a rails draw here.
Lightly raced but benefited greatly for a wind operation when winning in game fashion at Chepstow in August. Has disappointed twice in handicaps since, but drop to 5f here last time not ideal, and he may well do better now.
Back to form with a bang when scoring decisively under this jockey in an apprentice handicap at Bath. Couldn't take advantage of unchanged mark here last time, however, and now 4lb higher.
Like stablemate Little Palaver, he won an apprentice handicap under Amelia Glass, but couldn't follow up when unpenalised. Again below that form at Salisbury last time, and has a bit to prove.
Wins at Lingfield and Windsor this summer have been surrounded by some solid efforts. Back to form under a good 7lb claimer when a close fifth here last time, but she will need to take another step forward to win this.
