Consistent sort who likes it here and has two recent victories to her credit. Fine effort when just edged out off career-high mark over 1m last time and has sound claims again despite another 2lb rise.
Ended a long, losing run when successful over C&D recently. More needed off 3lb higher mark in a stronger contest, but is not ruled out.
Versatile performer who handled the drop to 6f when scoring at this venue last time. Up 3lb over this longer trip, but should be on the premises.
Third to stable companion Sooqaan at this venue on latest outing, but won over C&D last month. Not ruled out, but looks on a high enough mark.
Scored over 1m at this track in November, but latest efforts off higher marks have been disappointing. Handicapper has given him a chance, however, so it will be interesting to see if he can take it.
Veteran who was scoring for the 12th time on the AW when successful over 1m at this venue earlier this month. Clobbered with a 7lb rise, however, which seems harsh.
C&D winner last month and faced a tough task behind an improver at Newcastle on latest start. May be able to bounce back if first-time cheekpieces prove beneficial.
Scored on turf at Bath in September, but has not been seen since finishing down the field on the AW at Kempton the following month. Probably best watched following his spell on the sidelines.
Convincing C&D winner in December, but could not back that up at Lingfield next time. Lightly raced and return to this track a plus, so not out of it off her 3lb higher mark.
Best effort in five attempts on the AW saw him finish third of 13 over C&D in December. Has not been able to back that up, but now finds himself 3lb lower and in with a chance if able to return to that earlier form.
Trained by Clifford Lines when landing a maiden handicap at Lingfield last month. Up 3lb and starts out for this trainer, but has form on Fibresand and cannot be ruled out.
Eight-race maiden whose handicap mark continues to fall. In good hands, however, and may yet be capable of better.
No wins in 11 starts, but has shown enough on the AW to suggest she can put that right at some stage. First start on Fibresand off career-low mark.
Regular visitor to this track, but has not done enough to suggest a return to winning ways is imminent. Continues to slide down the weights, however.
