Good efforts to be runner-up on last two starts over this trip at Lingfield. She is able to compete off the same mark and if first-time cheekpieces prove beneficial, she should be thereabouts.
Just touched off over 5f at this venue last month and has been raised 1lb by the handicapper. Has winning form over 7f on her CV so this step up in trip is likely to suit.
Scored over 5f at this track in November, but last two runs have been disappointing. Visor he wore last time is left off, but his handicap mark remains high.
Decent effort to finish third of eight over this distance at Lingfield last month. Competes off the same mark and has each-way claims.
Well held on last two starts at this track and is still looking for first win for this trainer since leaving James Given's yard. Visor back on off a 4lb lower mark.
Experienced campaigner who has nine wins to his credit, but was beaten a long way at Lingfield last month. Has since joined this stable from Paul Howling's yard.
Out of the frame, but signs of ability, in three starts over sprint distances. Makes handicap/stable debut and is probably best watched in first-time cheekpieces.
Only career success came over this C&D on debut in June, 2017. Did not shape too badly at Southwell last time, but others have stronger profiles.
Back to form when runner-up to Santafiora off this mark over C&D at the start of this month. Clear chance if able to reproduce that display.
Irish import who produced his best performance in three runs for this yard when a fairly close fifth of 11 over C&D. Behind Santafiora and Carpet Time on that occasion, however, and needs to take another step forward.
Reasonable effort over 7f at this track last time and she is able to race off 1lb lower. Has won over C&D so not one to rule out despite patchy recent record.
Returned to wining ways when beating Carpet Time over C&D 12 days ago. Handicapper has raised her only 3lb and she could go close again for in-form stable.
