Welcome return to form when close fourth of 14 over C&D in November. Absence since that run is not ideal, but he competes off the same mark and has to enter calculations.
At the top of his game, winning three of his last four starts over 5f and 6f, two of them on this surface. Remains on a feasible mark and, given he seems sure to give his running again, has to go on the short list,
Unplaced in five starts on the AW and competes for the first time on Fibresand. Makes little appeal despite his falling handicap rating.
Capable AW performer at his best, but latest efforts have been disappointing. Hard to know how much ability he retains, but the handicapper has given him a chance,
No wins in five starts and has been unplaced in four runs on the AW. Latest effort over 6f at this track was poor and huge improvement is needed in a first-time visor off 3lb lower.
Veteran who produced three fair efforts off 1lb higher at Newcastle last month. Most recent efforts on Fibresand suggest this is not his optimum surface.
First run for this trainer since leaving Milton Bradley's stable when fair fifth of 10 over 6f at Kempton. Down 1lb, but it's a long time since he got his head in front.
Turf and AW winner in Ireland who is making her debut for this stable. Best recent form over much further so this looks a fact-finding mission for connections.
Unplaced in nine starts, seven of them on the AW. Little encouragement in last two outings on this surface and is readily opposed.
Well behind a progressive sort over 7f at Chelmsford on latest start. Down 8lb and drops in trip, but is hard to make a case for as she seeks her first win at the 40th attempt.
Cashed in on his rivals going too quickly early on when scoring over 6f at this venue last month. Not certain this drop in trip is ideal, but he is in form and remains feasibly weighted.
First run for this trainer after joining from the Irish yard of Adrian Murray. No wins from nine starts over a variety of trips and cheekpieces are applied for the first time.
Only win in 13 starts came over 6f at this venue. Second to Geography Teacher two starts ago, likes this surface and is not without a chance if handling the drop in trip.
