Ended a long losing sequence in winning a tight finish over this C&D in a stronger grade. Change to more prominent tactics suited and every chance under 6lb penalty.
Better suited by the AW but had no chance after saddle slipped early here last start. Could bounce back but does look a touch high in the weights.
Caught the eye from a poor position despite being beaten at odds-on and made short work of her opening mark on handicap debut subsequently. Only up 4lb and likely to go close.
Narrowly beaten when aiming for a third win in 12 days. Quick reappearance again and although 4lb rise shouldn't be an issue it is a big ask.
On a long losing run but an eye-catching run returning from a 261-day absence when caught wide over this C&D. Has dropped to a low mark and could go well.
Failed to build on Musselburgh win back at Kempton and now unplaced in all seven AW starts which rates a clear concern.
Ran up to the level of her Wolverhampton win when returning at Newcastle and remains lightly-raced with improvement possible up to this distance. Rates a leading hope.
13-race maiden had been threatening to breakthrough before a disappointing effort latest. More required to win at this level and others preferred.
Two wins for Ed Walker and nearly gained a first handicap success when second in final two starts for him. However well beaten on stable debut and best watched.
On a competitive mark at present and goes well on this surface. Drop in trip isn't an issue and can go well off the back of two close seconds.
