Showed significant improvement with an easy win to breakthrough in first-time blinkers on first try at this trip. Well in under a 6lb penalty if headgear has the same effect.
Remains a maiden after 13 starts but was a decent staying on third on second start for new yard. Could be competitive again although drop of half furlong looks a negative and may need further.
Back on same mark as last win which came over this C&D, however failed to beat a rival home when well beaten the last twice and others look more reliable.
3lb higher than success two runs back over this C&D and not disgraced in better company last time. Should be suited by drop back in grade and return to this track and looks a leading player.
First run since September when tailed off at Leicester. Can go well fresh and drawn to lead. Returning off a competitive mark but remains hard to predict.
Has returned in good form winning two of his last three, including over this C&D last time. Up 3lb but is still improving and no reason why he shouldn't be involved again.
Finally off the mark over this C&D two runs back and then ran a career best here when just edged out late on. Up another 4lb but in form and clearly well suited by conditions. Should be competitive.
Narrowly beaten at Kempton but well below that last time and has lots to find with Philamundo from there. Others appeal more.
Yet to feature in four starts so far and has to race from 6lb out of the handicap. Remains best watched.
