Took a slight step forward on Bangor comeback run but that form has taken some heavy knocks so almost certainly needs further improvement.
Poor form to date but showed a little at Carlisle on latest with the promise of more to come now stepping up in trip and likely to be a player.
Multiple wins in Point-to-points since last seen under rules. Hard to know if he improved in the interim but likely she will have needed to.
Best effort was when second here on latest but hard to know the value of that with the 1/14 favourite running no race. Now handicapping so could be more to come.
Still a maiden though has shown bits of form which would put her in the mix here including when mid-division in better race at Wetherby race last time.
In good heart judged on last efforts when placed over 2m. Hasn't made much impact in the past at this longer trip so does have stamina to prove.
Runner up in a weak five runner contest at Perth 18 months ago was sole piece of form so not hard to look elsewhere.
Has stood little racing down the years and hard to make a case for this veteran on handicap bow unless market tells us otherwise.
Moderate maiden for whom the switch to handicaps has brought no improvement and readily passed over even in this low grade.
Beaten a long way all starts and off the track since March 2016 so hard to find any positives.
The subject of support on last few runs but hasn't looked like justifying it and difficult to make a case for.

Matt Brocklebank is in the nap hotseat on Sunday and he hopes it's a case of third time lucky at Exeter.
