Took advantage of a lenient mark on handicap debut at Wolverhampton last time. There's every chance she will act on this surface on Fibresand debut and only up 2lb for last week's success. Leading claims with Morris booked.
Unplaced on all three career starts but may do better now stepped up in trip on handicap debut. Interesting contender but not guaranteed to be suited to Fibresand.
Ran okay in claiming company at Wolverhampton in December but couldn't back that up back in a handicap last time out when failing to settle. More exposed than some and makes Fibresand debut; others preferred.
Left all previous form behind on his first start since wind surgery at Chelmsford last time when he was a well backed winner. Not certain to appreciate the switch to this surface and drawn wide; looks opposable now 5lb higher.
Put up a much improved effort here last time out when tried in first-time headgear. Drop back in trip could be in his favour and a reproduction of his latest effort should give him each-way claims.
Hinted at some ability towards the end of the summer but struggling in recent AW starts. Wide draw won't help on yard debut here and others preferred. Makes Fibresand debut.
Well beaten on all six starts including a course appearance here back in November. Yard in good form but likely to struggle on all known evidence.
Well beaten on each of his four starts. Gelded since he was last seen and yard do well around here so can't be ruled out on Fibresand debut. Dam a half-sister to a Fibresand winner.
Improving with every start of late and stayed on well to hang on over 6f here last time. Yard have come in to form in recent weeks and this gelding is expected to run well from an ideal draw.
Shaped well on Fibresand/handicap debut two starts back but failed to back that up here last time out. Drop in trip may help but yard have stronger claims with Agent Smith.
Showed improved form when third of seven here on Fibresand debut last time out. Needs to build on that back up in trip but draw not ideal here.
Improved to finish fourth here on handicap debut and went close to springing a big surprise (50/1) here last time out when only ¾L behind Champagne Mondays. Slightly worse off at the weight this time and has the widest draw.
Well beaten on each of his four starts including Fibresand/handicap debut last time out over 1m. Hard to fancy dropped back in trip here. Wears first-time blinkers.
Well beaten on all five starts and his habit of starting slowly won't help him on his debut at this course. Others preferred.
