16:45 Chelmsford City Thu 10 January 2019
Has a career record of 10-85 although the wins have become rather less frequent of late. Couldn't get on terms over 7f at Lingfield last time, and return to 1m should suit, so considered on first try at this lowly level.
Maiden who is struggling for form, and well positioned when fifth behind False ID at Wolverhampton last time. Yard quiet, and may have to wait for elusive success.
Has won off a much higher mark over C&D in the past, and while he's been out of form for some time, his plummeting mark means he can't be ignored.
Has gained two course wins in similar company, the latest over 7f four weeks ago. Not gone up much in the weights for that, and is shortlisted in attempt to follow up.
Both wins over further on Tapeta, and failed to fire fully in 2018. Not judged harshly on latest effort at Southwell, but needs to step up on recent efforts if he's to figure.
Hard to catch right, and while he ran one of his better races in a change of headgear at Southwell last time, he does need to prove he can repeat it on this different surface.
Record now reads 0-31, and she was below form when attempting to make all at Wolverhampton in November. Place claims if back to her best, but of limited interest for betting purposes.
Not beaten far at Lingfield last time, but in truth he never threatened, and remains without a win after ten starts. Well drawn, but needs to raise his game if he's to capitalise.
Yet to win, but kept on well when second of 11 to African Blessing in a 7f handicap here on his latest start. return to 1m ought to suit, and he's handicapped to play a prominent role.
Scored back-to-back turf wins in the summer of 2016 off higher marks but hasn't really figured of late on the AW despite a tumbling mark. Cheekpieces reached for now, and others look stronger again.
Has won off much higher in the past, and last two wins have been gained at this level on AW. Needs to improve on latest poor form, but return to this class could help.
Just the one placed effort from 19 starts tells its own story, and below even his own modest best in two starts back from a break this winter.
Hinted at ability in a bumper for Olly Murphy, but not persevered with, and has looked very limited since switched to the Flat.
From a respected yard, and wears cheekpieces for this handicap debut, but in truth he has looked to have scant ability in three runs in this sphere having failed to finish in a bumper.
Has barely beaten another rival in four outings to date, and trailed home last on handicap debut in a weak contest last time.
