Essentially disappointing under rules so far (0-8), including when struggling from halfway at Ayr (3m, good) in October; sports newly applied headgear (blinkers).
Fair Flat performer (best on the AW) but remains a five-race maiden over timber; finished seventh of 11 on handicap debut at Stratford (2m2f+, good) in October; stamina to prove at new trip.
Of limited ability (0-3 over hurdles), but is introduced to handicapping at a realistic level; held no chance (200/1) on her latest start in a Carlisle novice (2m1f) won by Good Boy Bobby; tongue-tie and cheekpieces added.
Perth regular (hasn't won since May 2016); edging back down the weights as a result; not totally disgraced when finishing over 10L sixth of 11 to Premier Rose at Carlisle (2m3f, good) latest; chance if staying.
Not beaten all that far off this mark at Ayr (3m, good) last week, when finishing third to Storm Nelson (runner up has won since); advancing in years, but respected under similar conditions.
13-race maiden with claims on a single piece of form at Perth (2m4f good) in May, but far less encouraging since (including over fences); plenty to find with Andhaar on recent Ayr form.
16-race hurdles maiden, but has run okay under similar conditions on his last two starts (3m, good); finished fourth, just 1½L behind today's rival Andhaar at Ayr last week.
13-race hurdles maiden (0-28 overall); not easy to fathom a positive argument with regards her chances; last seen in action on the AW at Newcastle.
