Ungenuine sort who has now slipped to a good mark; now eased into this grade for the first time (ran into 0-70 last time). May well have been helped by first-time blinkers last time; can be slow away, not one to trust totally; has won on Fibresand.
Five-time course winner (one win over this trip); showed himself capable over 7f here on his penultimate start. His last win saw him close to his best form although he failed to back that up under a penalty over C&D last time; player in this grade.
Plenty of AW form (two wins to her name); yet to run on Fibresand; has been running creditably of late though and looks on a fair mark if she takes to this surface. Yet to win for this yard in five starts and now wears cheekpieces for the first-time.
First try on Fibresand (sire has yet to have a winner on the surface); also makes his stable debut; previously with David Barron. Has won over 7f on turf but looked to be rather going through the motions when last seen; has something to prove.
Two runs on this surface both after wind surgery proved ordinary and he's failed to stake anything like a step forward since. Slowly away when last seen he's often slowly away and looks a difficult ride; last win came in a seller, stiffer task.
Only one AW start to his name and making his initial Fibresand start (by a sire with a good record on the surface). Shown some fair form on turf but remains a handicap maiden; laboured effort when last seen without his usual visor in a 1m seller.
Three-time course winner over 6f who has won over further (1m) but not on this surface. Two runs for this yard have been well below-par and he raced freely on Tapeta last time making little final impression.
Looked to enjoy this surface winning her first two starts here over 1m under fully-fledged riders. Failed to fire here when last seen (under an inexperienced amateur) but may have needed the run; first run for new yard under a previous winning rider.
One of two runners in this for the yard but remains a 17-race Flat maiden with a very unappealing profile overall. Well below form when last seen (on turf; 6f) and this will be his initial run on Fibresand; new headgear combination tried now.
Course winner over 6f who took advantage of a basement mark to score but has failed to back that run up in two runs off of a break over sprint trips here. Now steps up in trip again (tried before over 7f); temperamental sort, others appeal more.
Moved to this yard after four unsuccessful runs for Ivan Furtado via a wind op. Has still shown very little though in two starts for his current yard on Tapeta; made one previous unimpressive appearance here; not one to enter calculations.
Long-standing maiden with 34 defeats to her name despite on occasions running some creditable races. Yet to be tried on Fibresand (fitted with first-time eyeshields) but her overall record isn't one that gives any confidence for win purposes.
