Good servant for Chris Dwyer, winning five times and being placed on 12 occasions. First run for current handler following a break, but is worth checking for market support.
Has shown a liking for this venue, winning at it three times, but latest win came at Newcastle off 4lb lower. In good heart and looks sure to make another bold bid.
Three wins over C&D, including on his last two starts. Handicap mark on the rise, but not out of control so has to go on the short list.
Successful at Chelmsford and Wolverhampton in October but, following a short spell on the sidelines, he was last of six over C&D last month. Needs to show more off the same rating.
Stable companion of Choice Encounter who finished behind that horse twice before bombing out at Lingfield last time. Weighted to be thereabouts if bouncing back.
Fought out a dead heat over C&D last month before finishing a close fourth of 10 off this 1lb higher mark at Lingfield. No reason he shouldn't figure again.
Beaten 1L when fifth to Little Palaver last time and is 1lb better off. Did not get the clearest of runs on that occasion and it would be no surprise to see him turn the tables.
Last Year's Winner
Treacherous (5/2), Choice Encounter (3/1), Little Palaver (5/1), Compas Scoobie (6/1), Rock of Estonia (7/1), Rose Berry (10/1), National Glory (10/1)
