Veteran ended a two year losing sequence when taking a selling handicap at Southwell. Looks to prefer a slower surface nowadays and may be worth waiting for a return to the fibresand where he's now unbeaten in two.
Gained an overdue second career win and a first for her new yard at Southwell. Trainer does well with his imports and she has to be respected but 5lb rise and different surface to contend with.
Won a couple of times in the spring but has been largely out of sorts since. Attractively handicapped now but needs to better recent efforts.
Sole win came at Kempton in March 2017 but possibilities on his last two runs at the same track. Concern remains that he looks a tricky ride late on.
Last win came in Novermber 2016 but should be fitter for two decent runs back and on a good mark. All wins have come at shorter but could be involved.
Sole win came over 7f at Southwell and below that over the same C&D latest. Probably needs some help from the handicapper.
Well held the last twice and although down in grade has now been unplaced in six starts on the AW. Others preferred.
Irish raider has regressed with racing this year and with just one win from 35 AW starts remains easy to oppose.
Not beaten far the last twice including over this C&D. Could be competitive in first-time blinkers but also entered at Kempton on Wednesday.
11-race maiden but ran up to her best at Southwell last time. Has gone well here previously and every chance she can be competitive down to this grade.
23-race maiden with possibilities on his second over this C&D two starts back. May be that this course brings out the best in him but remains hard to predict.
Front-runner who is 2lb lower than C&D win in February. Not beaten far in her last three starts and place possibilities again.
Just two wins in a 63-race career (the last in April 2016) and yet to win in 26 on the AW. Ran well over this C&D two starts back but below that last time and remains easy to oppose.
