Has progressed on his last three starts, twice over 7f and then with breakthrough win off a strong tempo over a mile. Drop back to sprinting distances a surprise but has pace and is open to improvement.
Won at Bath in September but exposed since off higher marks. Could have gone closer at Wolverhampton with a clearer run but still needs to find more off this mark.
Shaped with promise on her second start but has gone backwards since and was very poor at Newcastle in November. Considerable improvement needed on course debut.
Rare winner but on a very good mark and was only just denied late on last time and last two runs have been backed up by decent times. Ideal distance and likely to be involved again.
11-race maiden who has been much improved the last twice at Wolverhampton. Lacks a change of gears but a reproduction of that form would see her go very close down to this level.
Not far away last time despite being stuck wide and that would see her competitive here, however the fact that she's off a much reduced mark and still has only has one win from 22 starts is a worry.
Veteran with nine career wins including over this C&D. Not beaten far in similar low-grade affairs the last twice but lacks the pace of old and stable continues a long search for winners.
Front-runner got worked up at Chelmsford and back to form when third from a similar wide draw over this C&D. Likely to have to do plenty early again but place possibilities.
Remains a maiden after 11 starts and although posting a couple of decent runs last May, has been disappointing since. Moderate sixth last start and more required.
Eight-race maiden who has been well beaten on all three previous visits here and whose best run by far came at Lingfield. Hard to fancy back from a break.
15-race maiden and yet to place in 11 starts on a synthetic surface. Returned from a break with two poor runs and remains easy to oppose.
