Hasn't raced on the AW since April 2014 (0-4); made the frame on each of his last three starts on turf (5f-6f, good); rated 8lb lower on the AW; making his first racecourse appearance for three months.
1-13 on the AW and does the bulk of her racing over the minimum trip, but has kept fair form over 6f of late, including when a 2L runner up to Secret Agent at Kempton.
Four-time AW winner, including when landing the odds off a 5lb higher mark over C&D in January; weakened quickly after racing prominently here latest.
Better than he showed over C&D 15-days ago (forced wide), and was a back-to-back 5f-5½f winner immediately prior; still remains potentially well handicapped on AW form for previous trainer David O'Meara in 2017; chance.
Lost her way since winning for this rider at Leicester (5f, good to firm) in July and has something to prove on artificial surfaces (0-4); blinkers are now applied in an attempt to rejuvenate.
14lb lower than when scoring on Tapeta at Wolverhampton (5f) in November 2016; signs of a slight revival in his last couple of outings, including when beaten less than 3L (fifth) by La Fortuna over 6f here in September.
Cost 22,000gns as a juvenile and showed promise on debut at Kempton in September 2017 (fourth); far less flattering performances since and off the track since December 2017; belated handicap debut.
6-64 on the AW and this is certainly the place that he appreciates racing most; beaten less than 2L by La Fortuna off this mark over C&D in September and twice placed on Tapeta at Wolverhampton since; respected.
13-race AW maiden who competes from outside of the handicap; very unlikely given his regressive overall profile; absolutely no evidence whatsoever that wind surgery has been beneficial.
