In good heart and ran better than finishing position indicated when short of room latest at a crucial point. Interesting jockey booking and has to be on the short list.
A standing dish at the track but without a win since May last year and bit to prove at present despite the slipping mark.
Dropping down the weights but has only managed to beat four rivals in his last five AW starts and stable appear to hold better claims with Cry Wolf.
Yet to add to her debut win in February last year and this is her first run beyond 1m5f. Probably worth a go but others have less to prove.
Showed a good attitude when scoring over C&D last month and 4lb rise is fair. Relatively lightly raced at this trip and should figure.
Game win here in September and although beaten 10L at Newbury last time, that winner followed up in a strong race since and that form reads well in this grade,
Goes well for this jockey but hasn't convinced with finishing effort in two previous attempts at 2m so stamina to prove.
Lightly raced and gained compensation for a narrow defeat when getting off the mark at Yarmouth in August. That was over 1m4f and now goes up 4f in distance. Should have more to come but needs to prove stamina.
Seemed to stay this far, without improving for it when trying 2m last time. Hopes now rest on first time cheek pieces having a positive effect.
