Has failed to fulfil early juvenile promise and was well beaten on her only start in a 6f handicap in November. Drops in trip off 3lb lower and has a few questions to answer.
Scraped home from Willow Brook over C&D when last sighted in November. Bids to follow up off 5lb higher and will need to have improved.
Bits of promise before taking an early false step on the way to a disappointing sixth of seven at Lingfield last month. Not obviously well treated on handicap bow, but is in good hands and can probably do much better.
Landed a Kempton nursery over 6f in October and has not been disgraced off higher marks in two subsequent starts. Has to prove she is fully effective over 5f, but is one of the more likely contenders for last year's winning stable.
First run in a handicap when finishing sixth of 10 at Wolverhampton last month. Down 4lb and may well be capable of better.
First outing for current trainer after leaving George Scott's stable when a strong-finishing second to Klopp over C&D. Every chance she can turn the tables on 1lb better terms if getting going a little sooner.
Out of the frame in six starts from 5f to 7f. Shaped a little better over 6f at this track last time and has prospects off 1lb lower dropped back to the minimum trip.
Out of the frame in four starts for Ed Dunlop, including when visored for his handicap debut. Starts out for a new yard off 3lb lower with cheekpieces fitted.
Last four runs have been at this track from 6f to 1m and he has failed to hit the frame in each of them. Plenty to prove dropped to 5f despite plunging handicap mark.
Disappointing 12th of 13th behind Klopp over C&D in November. Has a mountain to climb on that form and is readily opposed.
Stable companion of Sing Bertie and was well behind Klopp on her penultimate start. Little to recommend her off career-low rating.
