Emphatic win over C&D in basement grade in February but below that in two runs after and now returns after a seven months absence with a bit to prove.
Just touched off at Wolverhampton last month. Not disgraced in two subsequent starts and still relatively low mileage so worth a second look in this weak contest.
Never been the easiest to predict but capable in this grade on his day and most recent win in May was gained off this mark.
Front-runner who is well drawn to attack. Bit better at Wolverhampton and though that form needs building on, he has won off higher marks in the past.
Rattled off a hat-trick at Newcastle this time last year and a spell in the doldrums showed definite signs of a return to form when fourth of 12 there last time. That was over 6f but the extra trip here is fine and looks a player on that evidence.
Lightly raced maiden who has shown little at sprint trips but shapes as though this extra furlong will be a plus and still early days after just five career starts.
Bit better last time but is generally struggling since joining this yard from Stuart Williams and still a maiden after 19 runs.
Four wins on the spin on soft ground at Lingfield in 2017 but has been badly out of sorts since than and hard to fancy on recent evidence.
Often blows the start so his plum draw may work against him. Just one from 27 on the AW and not hard to look elsewhere.
Landed two on the spin in 2016 off this mark but has been struggling for a while and best run this year was in a seller over 6f.
Rare AW run away from Wolverhampton. Has plenty of form there from this sort of mark and not without a chance if taking to this surface.
No ability to date and first time tongue tie and blinkers need to have a dramatic effect to see her figure here.
