Remains a maiden after 16 starts and hasn't been threatening of late, overlooked again despite the fact rating is dropping.
Tends to perform best at Lingfield (nowhere near best in two starts here), on a fair mark however if finding his rhythm around this place.
Has something to find with Bamako Du Chatelet on Lingfield meeting in October. Not really in form of late in any case.
Still a maiden but often runs well, including over much further. Made the frame in one previous attempt over this C&D and could well have similar claims.
Runner-up C&D and Wolverhampton winner two most recent starts, latest over further. This is a bit tougher from new perch but likely can give decent account with Martin Harley on board.
Still a maiden but running more good races than bad lately, including staying on fourth here last time. Merits a trip at this longer trip in bid to get head in front.
Smart hurdler has lost his way in that sphere, made winning return to the Flat over 2m1f at Bath in October but poor again since over timber and drop in trip some concern.
Appeared to find first attempt over 1m2f no concern when snatching second spot over 1m2f here last month. Up again in distance and looks a key player.
Winner over this sort of trip in June but rather lost his way lately and easier to overlook than most on that basis.
Big prices in novice events on turf this summer and well beaten each time, nothing better to report over hurdles in July and off since. Plenty to find now going handicapping first time on artificial surface.
Ran fourth over C&D last month on first start in a while, entitled to come on for the runs and could run into the money at a price if doing so.
Made handicap debut over 1m2f here last month and well down the field, form that gives him plenty to find with runner-up Magic Mirror now going up in distance.
Both wins from 20 career starts have come on artificial surfaces over this sort of trip, latest at Chelmsford in August off this mark. Flat in four runs since, so need a big bounce back here.
Ten-race maiden, didn't appear to relish first attempt at this trip here last month and has plenty to ponder as such. Others preferred.
