Won over C&D in April, and best effort since when second here in May. Probably needed the run after a break last time, and one to consider back on Fibresand.
A five-time C&D winner for his previous yard, he has yet to achieve much for his current yard, although not a huge surprise to see him back to form having dropped to a lower mark than for all his previous handicap wins.
Comes here at the top of her game having won at Ayr on her penultimate start, and run at least as well when second at Nottingham last time. Claims if proving herself on this surface.
Has run creditably on both starts here, and far from disgraced when fifth of 14 to The Golden Cue at Nottingham last time. One to bear in mind from a workable mark.
Hasn't looked like winning this season, but has plenty of respectable efforts to her name, including when fourth of 16 at Redcar last time. High draw not ideal on first start at this venue.
Won at Wolverhampton in July, but running lamentably at present, and hard to fancy for all blinkers are deployed for the first time now.
Has got back to form following wind surgery in the summer, and won well over 6f at Redcar last time. Out of form when last tried here, and much too well treated to ignore under a penalty.
Has won here in the past but 1-14 strike-rate on this surface is nothing to crow about, and weakened tamely after setting a strong pace at Wolverhampton.
Ran well when placed at Chelmsford in May, but remains a maiden, and recent efforts leave something to be desired, with slow starts a recurring theme.
Best recent effort when third at Yarmouth in August, and possibly unsuited by step up to 6f there last time, but she needs to improve to win on first try on Fibresand.
Won at Thirsk in June, and has run well on last couple of turf starts, but patchy form here in the spring, and has never convinced on this surface.
Veteran with plenty of AW form, but he's only managed to make the frame twice in nine starts here, and he's opposable despite winning at Newcastle in May.
Difficult to enthuse about much of his form so far and while he was a bit better than the result at Hamilton in September, he had no excuses when trailing at Newcastle last time.
Veteran who can be hard to catch when on son, but the years are catching him up, and has finished last on two of last three outings.
