Returned from a break with a neck victory in a 5f handicap at Wolverhampton last week. Carries a 6lb penalty for that success.
In good form in recent months winning twice and finishing runner-up twice over C&D on his last four visits to this track. Finished runner-up off this mark a month ago and likely to play a leading role in this contest.
Promising return to action when finishing third in a 6f handicap at Wolverhampton in October. Interesting runner dropping in trip and grade.
Made the frame on five of her last six starts including when beaten 1L at Nottingham (5f, soft) a month ago. Another bold show looks likely.
Narrowly beaten in a soft ground 6f handicap at Redcar in October and has finished fourth in two subsequent starts. Beaten 9½L when filling that position over 6f here last week.
Beaten a short-head in a 5f fibresand handicap at Southwell last week but has finished well held on both previous starts at this venue.
Good 1L third in a 5f selling handicap at Ripon (good) on his most recent start four months ago. Sole victory came in an AW claimer at Wolverhampton in August last year.
Struggled when finishing ninth of 11 in a 5f selling handicap at Southwell recently. Returning from a break that day and has won over C&D in the past.
Successful by a head in a C&D handicap a month ago. Held on the fibresand at Southwell subsequently and a return to this venue should see him in a better light.
Running well in defeat since returning from a break including when 2L third over C&D a month ago. Returning to this venue following two good efforts at Southwell.
12 race maiden but running well in recent times including when finishing ½L third in a handicap over this trip at Catterick (good-to-soft) last time out. Making just his second AW start.
15 race maiden placed third beaten 3L over C&D a month ago. Held fifth upped to 6f at Wolverhampton subsequently and a return to this trip should suit.
Placed in a soft ground 6f handicap at Redcar in October. Below that level in two subsequent starts including over 5f at Southwell last week.
Struggled in two starts since returning from a break and seeking his first victory since winning a 6f claimer in January 2015.
