Showed improvement on handicap debut when seemingly well suited by the fibresand. Remains on a good mark but needs to prove a liking for this surface.
Showed big improvement in each of her starts so far and only denied late over this C&D. Likely to go close on handicap debut.
Unlucky not to have shed his maiden tag yet and just denied a neck on his last two starts. Up another 3lb but should be involved again.
Had seemingly lost his way in some hot handicaps but shaped better down in grade last time. Down in class again but rise in trip is a query.
Improved to win following a gelding operation on first try at this trip at Lingfield. Only up 3lb and likely has more progress to come now. Leading contender.
Has run to a consistent level of form so far and should be suited by this step up in distance. Touch more required but can be competitive.
Improved on handicap debut when a luckless close fourth. Could easily have won with a clearer passage and should have more to offer up to this trip. Likely to go close.
Failed to improve on handicap over this C&D when looking a tricky ride. Represents leading connections but more required now.
Ran on well when runner-up over this C&D and now makes handicap debut. On a competitive mark and respected but may appreciate further in time.
Raced to a similar level in three starts and likely to improve now going handicapping but bit to find with Flaunt It from latest C&D run.
Returned to form at Lingfield over 5f and dangerously handicapped if building on that. However needs to prove he needs a trip this far.
Well beaten in all three starts so far and now makes her handicap debut. Hard to make a strong case for.
