Improved from debut to win at Thirsk and bounced back from a blip with a respectable second at Catterick in September. Interesting runner if she's as effective on this surface.
AW winner at Chelmsford when losing her maiden tag and got her head back in front at Catterick last time on soft ground. More needed from her revised mark and the switch to this surface not sure to suit.
Still a maiden after 10 starts, all on turf. Has looked a shade unlucky on occasions but it's hard to imagine the switch to this surface will prove to be a source of improvement.
Has placed twice on AW at Wolverhampton and finds herself on the same mark as her latest effort. Every chance she will go on this surface given her pedigree and ideally drawn to attack here. Leading claims.
Shaped with some promise on turf but hasn't improved for the switch to handicaps/AW on recent starts and looks opposable at present.
Well beaten on each of his five starts including his most recent starts on AW. Hard to see why a switch to this surface will yield any improvement and hard to fancy.
Showed some promise on his first two starts before a disappointing run at Doncaster when last seen. Gelded and could improve plenty here on Fibresand/handicap debut given his pedigree.
Well beaten on each of his four starts at double figure odds. Starts out for his new yard now and they tend to do well around here so can't be ruled out.
Still a maiden after seven starts (six AW) and the handicapper has been slow to relent. Very disappointing last time and the switch to Fibresand needs to spark improvement.
Well beaten on each of her three starts, tailed off, and hard to make a case for on handicap debut here from a wide draw.
