14:40 Lingfield Wed 5 December 2018
Has two course wins to his name, both over 1m2f. Wears first-time visor and has been eased 1lb following last Flat outing when fair fourth at Kempton in August. Failed to shine there last time over hurdles.
Two fair efforts at end of Flat season on turf but has yet to score on AW. Rated 7lb lower on AW having failed to reach a place in four starts, but is not without hope and stays well.
Fairly disappointing Harbour Watch filly who hasn't shown much at all in four starts so far, including when a long last of 15 at Yarmouth in October on handicap bow. 2lb lower and tongue-tie worn for first time but makes little appeal.
Not beaten far last when close 7th on first attempt at this trip having previously won twice at a mile on turf and AW. Eased 2lb and looks won of the livelier outsiders.
22-race maiden makes debut for new yard and returns from more than five month absence. Well handicapped on pick of form over last few seasons and interesting to see if he attracts any market support with good jockey booked.
Landed 1m6f Wolverhampton handicap last year when trained by Peter Hiatt but has shown nothing in four outings since joining current yard this summer. 3lb lower than last Flat run but has plenty to do in first-time blinkers.
Broke his duck at the 16th time of asking when winning at Wolverhampton in May and not disgraced in four subsequents starts prior to break, May have needed comeback run so is not without hope here.
Likes to bowl along and made all to win at Chelmsford (1m2f) penultimate start before fading in similar event there off 5lb higher mark last time. This step up in trip doesn't look the obvious answer.
Runner-up twice at this trip on turf this autumn but ran poorly last time at Kempton and much more is needed if she is going to be in the shake-up this time.
19-race maiden who has failed to reach a place last eight starts. Kept on last time though when not beaten too far over C&D and is a 1lb lower now.
25 races to date and still searching for his first win. Underwent wind surgery prior to latest disappointing run and it would take a big leap of faith to support him even off this low mark.
