Poor last time out but at least she's slipped down to the mark that she won off on turf in the summer over this trip on turf (handicap debut). First try on the AW here and needs to bounce back to her earlier form to take a hand.
Veteran now but a five-time winner here (once over C&D) although his recent form has been rather patchy with some modest runs on his CV of late. Usually races prominently; may find it difficult to dominate a field this size despite being well drawn.
Fared rather better than of late last time out with headgear back on (retained here) but all in all it was a modest run. Partnered by an experienced rider in the context of this contest and 7lb below his last winning mark; needs to build on last run.
Showed his best form on turf in the autumn scoring back-to-back wins over this trip on turf (one of them an apprentice event, other under this rider). Finished well held in last two runs back from a break; not written off in an ordinary affair.
The losing run continues to grow and a gamble on him last time when in a lower grade than this went astray at Wolverhampton. Now tried in cheekpieces for the first-time and a market move should be noted if the money comes again.
With an overall record of 1-30 she's hardly one for maximum faith although she did show a little more last time over C&D under today's rider having dropped to a near basement mark. Visor worn last time is retained; repeat run would see her go close.
Twice a C&D winner his penultimate run looked to hold some promise from what turned out to be a winless 2018. Made little impression last time though under this rider and the cheekpieces are now reached for having been worn for his last win in 2017.
Hardly the most straightforward or resolute character and with a career record that reads 1-48 it's not hard to pass him by in this. Never a threat last time over C&D and hard to see yet another headgear combination working the oracle.
One of two runners in this for the yard although this new recruit hasn't been seen for some considerable time now. Fourth over this trip at Kempton when last sighted only a market move would make him of interest.
Trainer looks to be clutching at straws here with this sprint performer now being asked to try 7f for the first time having shown very little of late. Tongue-tie tried for the first time bur would be a surprise winner.
His only win came here over C&D but it remains his only success in 39 career runs with his recent form doing very little to make him of interest. Finished 10th at Kempton yesterday to maintain his recent lull.
Back-to-back wins in amateur rider's events in 2017 over 6f remain his best efforts although he would have had very little chance in a 0-85 event last time. His form at this level though has been poor and on balance he's one to ignore.
