Made all to win at Ffos Las in September but held from a 3lb higher mark shortly afterwards. Probably needed the run latest but has to be a concern given the way he capitulated near the finish.
Well drawn and held his form well since winning here over 1m1f in November. Drop in trip not much of a concern and is well handicapped on the pick of his past form. Shortlisted.
Improved in a couple of novice events but was never in contention when swapped to handicap company last time. Connections keep faith with the blinkers but the gelding needs to take a step forward. Been dropped 2lb so worth a betting check.
Posted a series of near misses over the last few months and gets full marks for consistency. Goes well here and may benefit from strong handling in the saddle this time. Sound claims.
C&D winner on her penultimate start but never managed to land a blow last time out. Needs to post a personal best from her current mark. Place claims at best if her latest effort proves to be reliable.
Being kept busy in races of this nature but not having much luck so far. This looks a lot tougher than the race he won here last October and the gelding may have to settle for a minor role yet again.
Showed promise early in her career but has lost her way a tad over the last season. Well held in modest company on her debut for her current yard and now has a bit to prove. Best watched just now.
Just an Irish maiden win to his name and is 0-6 on the AW so far. Modest efforts of late and needs to find more now upped in trip to a mile for only the second time in her career.
Surprise winner of a modest event at Kempton in November but reverted to type in her last two starts. Hard to predict and looks one to be wary of from her present mark.
Won over 7f here as a juvenile but failed to add to her tally during her time in Ireland. back to something like her best latest on what was only her second start for her new stable but poor draw does little for her claims of boosting her profile.
Dropped to handy mark but better days are becoming harder to predict and she's not one to rely upon too heavily despite representing a top yard.
0-5 on the AW and easy to oppose on only her second start for her present trainer. Others appear to hold much more solid chances on these terms.
