Won twice as a two-year-old and arguably best run since latest when second at Yarmouth (6f). Two AW runs previously including here however less impressive so still somewhat risky especially with the widest draw.
6f Yarmouth winner in the summer ran well there next as well but has posted lesser efforts the last twice. Unplaced in all five previous AW starts so more than enough doubts at present.
Shock Musselburgh winner in September has maintained his form since with three good runs in four starts. Higher AW mark and wide draw both negatives but will enjoy return to 7f so has each-way potential.
Seems to enjoy C&D as shown by his four sound recent efforts here all of which have seen him beaten 2L or less. Gets 1lb back after latest midfield run over 1m at Lingfield and that only aids his sound EW claims.
Built on recent improvement when getting off the mark over C&D here latest and won quite cosily. Upped 4lb now but few miles on the clock and suggest she is still progressing so merits respect.
Unexposed first time handicapper was noted staying on well into fourth here over 6f last time out. 7f should suit better so is a very interesting runner with plenty of potential and first time blinkers offer further optimism.
Showed ability in four starts in Ireland although only once placed. Starts out for new yard upped to 7f for the first time and in first-time hood so is an interesting and respected contender.
In good form of late and off the mark latest at Chelmsford over 1m where he made all. Never raced over 7f and an easy lead unlikely but running too consistently to ignore.
Developed into a 7f specialist and after winning at Yarmouth in the summer she arrives here on the back of two thirds off this mark the latest on Tapeta at Newcastle. Should handle polytrack as well so likely to again go well.
Inconsistent sort, a dual AW winner on Tapeta who is as effective on this surface but arrives here on the back of four uninspiring efforts. Sort who can provide a shock every now and then but hard to be confident.
5½f Bath winner in May recently returned from a 183 day absence for a new yard when keeping on well for third over 6f at Wolverhampton. First try over 7f here and may well suit so has to be considered if overcoming wide draw.
16-race maiden has some pieces of form that would put him thereabouts like his penultimate start third here over 6f but ran poorly latest and overall is the sort who rates a risky proposition.
C&D winner in October and ran well next when second despite 6lb rise before a lesser effort most recently. If she can leave that behind she would have sound EW claims in a wide open contest.
