Won at Sandown in August and added to tally by taking an Italian listed race last time. Debatable how strong that form is, but can't be taken lightly back in a handicap.
Winless this year, but has shown useful form, and caught the eye when third of 10 to Hombre Casado at Kempton (7f) last time. Figures on an attractive mark, and ought to go well again.
Notched back-to-back wins on turf during the summer at around this trip, and back to form when a close fifth of 10 to Dubai One in a 7f handicap at Wolverhampton last time. Not dismissed having slipped further in the weights.
Won over C&D in September, and placed on all four starts since, so no knocking his consistency. Remains on same mark as when a close second to Dubai One at Wolverhampton last time, and no reason why he won't go well again.
Gained third win of the year in a 7f handicap at Chelmsford late last month, and shaped well when splitting Areen Heart and Sea Fox in race won by Dubai One at Wolverhampton. Good claimer back on board, and usual hood refitted now.
1m Haydock winner who bounced back from a shock defeat when caught on the line at Newmarket (7f) in August. Not seen since, but represents an excellent yard, and market useful on return to action.
Has faced some stiff tasks this year, and ran well when fourth at Sandown in September. Below form turned out quickly at Chelmsford next time, but better than that run would imply, and makes longshot appeal.
Below form since winning over C&D in January, but has had excuses, and forced very wide here last time having come in for market support. One to bear in mind.
C&D winner who was second to Spare Parts at Kempton in March, but who has been below form more recently, and makes little appeal from out of the weights.
