Landed a couple of weak races during the summer to take his AW record to 4-11. Has scored here previously and can go well fresh, but improvement needed off a career high Flat mark.
Losing run goes back to his Northumberland Plate success on turf in 2014. A poor run on his latest start sees him moved to a trainer who is usually charged with reviving this type of individual. On a career low mark if the switch pays off.
Without a win since April 2016 and looks an unlikely sort to stay this far based on pedigree and form.
Scored on the first of her 16 starts but has failed to add to that tally. Good prospects here though having proved she stays and acts on this surface. Stable in good form and handicapper has given her a chance.
Unlucky to bump into an inspired horse on penultimate start before taking apart modest opposition last time. Up 9lb in better company but hard to rule out another win.
Has won a bumper and a Flat handicap on Polytrack. hard to gauge his only run here, but his latest victory came under a well-timed ride under this jockey and he would have wanted a stronger pace. One to fear.
Record of 1-32 and he looks out of his depth back in this grade and against rivals who are in better form.
