Midfield in three turf novice events including latest warm contest at York over 1m where he led until just over 2f out. That form appealing for this considerably weaker race and fully expecting a bold bid here.
Finished 10th and twice ninth in three starts to date including once on AW. Opening mark looks far from generous for achievements to date so only obvious hope is first time hood having a profound effect.
Staying on fourth over 7f at Brighton two starts ago encouraging but bogged down over extended 1m next on soft at Newmarket. This surface likely to suit better so should stay and has genuine EW claims now.
Only beaten 2¼L into fourth here over 7f last time with three of today's rivals in arrears. Same mark here for first crack at 1m and looks as though she should stay so has sound place claims although needs more to manage anything better than that.
Improved on two ninths latest to finish fifth at Lingfield over 1m on AW debut but was still beaten 15L however albeit by a smart winner. Should find things a good deal easier here but not seen enough to recommend.
Twice placed filly was seventh here latest over 7f (Second Collection fourth). Not as open to improvement as some so more to do although should appreciate extra 1f.
Second beaten 2½L over 7f followed by fourth beaten 2L over 1m½f at Wolverhampton the last twice put him firmly in the thick of things here off the same mark and this trip may be perfect.
Beaten 15½L, 15L, 15½ in three starts to date all on AW including over C&D in middle of the three. Unknown quantity for handicaps but not seen enough to suggest him a likely contender.
Seemed a non-stayer over 1m2f the last twice including latest sixth at Chelmsford where he was still third ½f out. Potential he is more effective over this trip and not been over burdened by weight so has genuine claims here.
Yet to place in seven starts although he has two fourths and two fifths to his name. Tendency to hang left and visor now returns in attempt to help in this respect. Minor place appeal but risky overall.
Beaten 5L into eighth of 14 over 7f here last month on nursery debut. 3lb lower now for first crack at 1m but will need a fair bit more.
Little to recommend thus far including latest start at Lingfield when beaten 16L into ninth of 11. Awarded very lowly mark but still hard to be confident on what we've seen.
Little to recommend in first three starts and had three of these ahead when 13th of 14 over 7f here on nursery debut latest. Blinkers need to have a dramatic effect.
