Third win at this venue when scoring in good style over 1m5f on Wednesday. Turned out quickly under a penalty and has to cope with a drop in distance.
Scored over C&D under this jockey at the end of last month. A 3lb rise is fair and she should be in the mix again if in the same mood.
Kempton winner over 1m in November, but is effective over this trip at he showed when second over C&D on his latest start. Up 1lb for that display.
Best of three efforts in novice events saw him finish third of five at Wolverhampton last month. Looks on a stiff mark for first venture into handicap company.
In fine form of late as he underlined when finishing third of 14 at Kempton earlier this month. Has a bit to find with Narjes on C&D form last month, but is weighted to be closer.
Well held in two handicaps over 7f since joining current trainer from Michael Bell's yard. May do better stepped up in trip off lower mark.
Still looking for his first run after nine races, four of them for his current trainer. Drops in trip off a falling mark, but has questions to answer.
No wins in seven attempts and has hit the frame only once. Down the field on last two starts and needs much more off his 4lb lower rating.
Only win on the AW came at Chelmsford last summer. Not disgraced over C&D last time and races off 3lb lower, but others make greater appeal.
Beaten a long way in three maiden/novice events when trained by Joey Ellis. First run in a handicap for new handler and is probably best watched.
