Just one win from 25 AW starts and tailed off on first run since wind surgery back in November. Poorly drawn and others preferred.
Best form has come at Brighton and remains high in the weights, however two solid efforts the last twice at Chelmsford and should be competitive again.
Remains a maiden after 12 starts but was keeping on when not beaten far over this C&D last time. Well drawn but Isn't improving and more required.
Just 2lb higher than breakthrough win over a half furlong shorter at Wolverhampton and failed to stay over 1m4f here last time. Remains well handicapped on old form and worth another chance back in trip.
Won a maiden for this trainer here back in 2015 but hasn't added to that since. Has rejoined former yard but was out of form when last seen and best watched following lengthy absence.
Gained an overdue second career win last start following a previous unlucky run. In form and could be involved but this is tougher back in handicap company.
16-race maiden but was well backed when third up to this trip at Chelmsford last month. Probably just got there too soon and should go close again in a similar contest.
Hasn't shown enough in four starts to date and has an absence to overcome since handicap debut in August. Remains hard to fancy.
Still a maiden following 27 starts and although plummeting in the weights, he hasn't shown enough to suggest that run is about to come to an end.
Showed some promise on a couple of starts for Stuart Williams including over this C&D. Better than finishing position suggested on stable debut and suited by this step up in trip but poor draw to overcome.
Just two thirds to show from 16 starts so far and last four efforts have been poor. Remains best watched following short break.
Yet to win here but does act on the surface and a five-time AW winner. Losing run is approaching two years and hasn't shown enough in last few starts with a wide draw a further negative.
Hasn't tasted success or been placed in 20 starts so far and was going in the wrong direction when last seen in August. Easy to overlook on return.
Has shown little promise in six starts and tailed off on first run since gelding operation. Will have needed to find big progress in a 254-day absence.
