First AW start. Generally disappointing on turf although wasn't beaten far at all in better race at Doncaster last time. Tackles an extra furlong here.
Wasn't winning out of turn when scoring over this trip in Wolverhampton nursery last time out. 4lb higher now but shouldn't be far away if in similar mood.
First sign of form when keeping on nicely into fifth over this trip at Kempton last time out and has since been eased 1lb. Decent draw so is not without hope of getting involved.
Failed by just a head to land Newcastle 7f nursery on penultimate start but finsihed last of 10 when favourite on turf at Yarmouth only subsequent run. Decent young rider claims 5lb and not out of it if return to AW does the trick.
Ran respectably on three of first four starts before summer break. Shaped encouragingly on return at Kempton recently and could be a player now off 3lb lower mark.
Won 6f nursery on first start for this yard last month and was good runner-up off 9lb higher mark there six days ago. Tackles this trip for the first time but is clearly in good form at present and enters calculations.
Big Bad Bob gelding who has shown little in three starts so far in two Irish maidens and again on debut for current handler in novice event last time. Hard to enthuse over on handicap bow.
Yet to reach a place in nine starts and faded once headed 1f in mile seller here 11 days ago. Drop in trip may help but has already had plenty of chances.
Showed signs of ability in first three starts but has failed to make any impression in three more outings since going handicapping. Last of 12 last time and is up against it despite 2lb drop in weights.
Interesting jockey booking for gelding who has failed to place in all seven starts so far. Has hinted at a little ability though so worth checking for any market move.
Beaten just two lengths in Kempton handicap penultimate start but dropped out tamely last time over an extra furlong. This trip suits better but others make more appeal.
Placed twice in nine starts but is only modest and has lacked any consistency to date. Handicapper has eased her 7lb though so with further 7lb claim will race off a feather weight.
Compton Place gelding who has beaten just one horse home in three starts in novice auctions so far. Starts handicapping career off lowly mark and needs to show plenty of improvement if he is to get involved.
