In consistent form since last win and unlucky not to win last time at Lingfield. Up 2lb but there's little depth here and should go well if taking to the track on course debut.
Remains a maiden following seven starts and was quickly beaten when last seen at Brighton in October. Needs to find plenty on course debut.
12-race maiden in all codes but form has gone very much the wrong way since some early promise. Well held in selling company last month and others preferred.
Just two wins from 33 starts but not beaten far on his last four. Needs to improve on previous course form but is getting plenty of assistance from the handicapper and can be competitive again.
Dawn Approach colt showed little in four starts including on handicap debut back in June. Big improvement required on return from an absence.
Has proven hard to win with and yet to win in 17 AW starts. Tailed off the last twice and remains best watched.
A maiden under both codes of racing and has been well held each time he's been tried on an AW surface including on latest stable debut. Easy to overlook.
13-race maiden who wasn't beaten far two runs back but plenty to prove following a poor run when a beaten favourite and well beaten on previous visit here.
Remains a maiden following 13 starts under all codes and looked flattered by proximity in a bunch finish last time. Improvement required to be competitive.
Has struggled to make any sort of impression and only slight progress made in three starts to date. Hard to fancy stepping up in trip on handicap debut.
Back on last winning mark which came over 7f here but does stay this far. Made decent late progress after being trapped wide over a mile here and may be due a better run. Could be involved.
Not disgraced the last twice at Southwell and Chelmsford and is dropping to a very attractive mark. Could go well but may pay to wait till he returns to his favoured track at Wolverhampton.
