Placed just once in 11 starts since his win here in January 2017 (7f). Handicap continues to tumble and down in class here also but nevertheless rates a risky proposition.
Long standing maiden done little to recommend her of late since switched to AW surfaces although previous Tapeta run ignored given saddle slipped. Bits and pieces to suggest her all a while ago.
C&D win in November a seventh of her career. Not quite at her best since but slightly more like it last time despite being given lots to do. Each-way chances in a very ordinary affair.
Unplaced in seven starts to date but positives found in the fact that his best run to date on this surface at Wolverhampton two starts back. Off six months so that a further doubt but at this level he could still go well.
Showed little in three turf novice events and similar story on handicap debut at Wolverhampton when slow away and last throughout. Draw only makes already tough task harder.
28-race maiden but made the frame in two most recent starts early last year including C&D third. Nine-month absence to overcome here and higher mark than aforementioned runs so others appeal more.
C&D winner last March has shown more the last twice with a C&D fifth followed by a good fourth of 16 latest. Handicap falls again and arrives in good order so expectant of a bold bid.
Seems to be improving of late and arrives here on the back of two good seconds. Ran on over 7f here two starts back before latest second at Lingfield over 1m. Handicapper raises him 1lb but nevertheless looks the one to beat.
Veteran has some decent form at this track in the past without winning and latest third here another positive effort over 6f. Does stay this trip so no concerns going up 2f and despite moderate record he has claims.
Won here twice last winter including over C&D. Not raced since the summer however having lost his way so risky proposition overall.
Unplaced maiden beaten 21L into 10th of 13 at Chelmsford most recently on handicap debut after rearing at the start. Can do better with a better break but not seen enough to recommend.
