20:00 Kempton Mon 11 March 2019
No wins in 19 starts and latest race at Chelmsford saw her finish last of nine in a low-grade handicap. Hard to see her making an impact on these terms.
Winner of five races who is approaching the twilight of his racing career. Good third in a handicap at this venue two starts ago showed the fire still burns, however.
Creditable third over C&D in January, but not so good at this track last time. Remains a maiden after 12 races, but has a fighting chance of ending that state of affairs in a weak contest.
Maiden after 21 starts on the Flat and last racecourse appearance saw her finish tailed off in a Kempton novice hurdle in November. Bits of her placed form on the level give her each-way prospects, but her overall profile is not convincing.
Landed a similar contest over 1m½f at Wolverhampton last month, but was well held in a handicap at the same venue last time. Has come up short on previous attempts at this trip.
Tailed-off last of 12 over this distance at Wolverhampton in January. Previous fourth at Newcastle was a much better effort, but more is needed against a few of these rivals.
Maiden after 28 attempts and has been well beaten in three starts after finishing a head second in a Chelmsford handicap last August. Needs to find earlier spark upped in trip.
Maiden hurdle winner for top Irish trainer Gordon Elliott and has not been disgraced in two Flat races over further than this since joining current handler. Not out of it at these weights.
Arguably best effort in nine runs when third of 13 in a similar contest over 1m1½f at Wolverhampton in January. Has stamina to prove over this longer distance, but has prospects if he stays.
Broke his duck at the 11th time of asking when winning a Chelmsford classified contest last month. Comes into this race in good heart and has every chance at the weights.
Moderate performer for Richard Spencer and now starts out for a new trainer in first-time cheekpieces which need to have a galvanising effect if he is to land a blow.
