Consistent performer won a seller for Jamie Osborne and not far off that level in two handicaps for new stable since. Hasn't previously convinced at this far.
Turned his form back around on stable debut with dominant win over this C&D and only just below that off revised mark in two Newcastle starts since. Could have more to offer back here.
13-race maiden formerly trained by Karl Burke whose best form would give her a chance off this mark but would need to improve on two runs so far for new yard.
Losing run stretches back to March 2017 and became regressive last year for Steve Gollings. Never involved on September's stable debut and best watched following an absence.
Both wins have come over this C&D; a claimer and in this grade off 3lb lower. Would need to find more than his latest close second in the claimer he won last year.
Pulled-up over hurdles for previous yard in January and previously had been better over further than this for Jonathan Portman. Possibilities on her best form but others look more reliable candidates.
1m6f Chelmsford winner campaigned exclusively at 1m5½f plus since that win but with little success. Below par latest and drop in trip combined with blinkers now tried in bid to revive fortunes.
Remains a maiden after eight starts but close-up efforts last twice over two miles. Shaped as though this drop in trip may help and every chance in first-time cheekpieces.
Disappointed at Newcastle latest but previously went close in three starts over this C&D and unlucky in the last two of them. Down in grade from last visit here and can bounce back for an in-form stable.
Yet to add to 2017 novice win although hit the line strongly when third up to this distance at Kempton. First-time blinkers replace visor as he can wander around in the race. Possibilities but disappointed on previous visit here
Nine-race maiden was tried in Listed company as a juvenile. Solid efforts last twice and shaped on first try over a similar distance at Newcastle as though there should be more progress to come.
