Two-time C&D winner who got back to winning ways last time without having to be at his best (dominating in a weak race). More needed back on Fibresand under a 6lb penalty; can be hard to reel in though; well drawn.
Lightly-raced sort who is a C&D winner on her only previous visit here won a minor event from at the time a reluctant hero in Point Zero. Clearly not right for her handicap debut (back on turf) when last seen; returns from a break, bit to prove.
Made a successful Fibresand debut over C&D when last seen underling the good spell that he's in at the moment. Took a while to find his stride that day but kept on well to beat a solid Fibresand sprinting yardstick; off just 1lb higher here.
From a yard that do well with sprinters his last win came in a 6f sprint seller on turf back in May. Showed one glimmer of his former self (been rated in the 80's) when third in a Ripon Class 2 over 6f in August; now back from a break, may need this.
Pedigree fails to offer much hope that she will appreciate this surface and she needs to bounce back from a poor display on the Tapeta last time (finished last). Would have a chance on some of her previous form; meets some good Fibresand sprinters.
Comes here seeking a long-term hat-trick; recorded the first leg on turf over 5f in October; followed up last month over 6f at Newcastle. Still well treated on his old form but his one previous run here does question his effectiveness on Fibresand.
Losing run starting to extend to a worrying extent now with most of his recent form looking rather inconsistent. Looked back to form on his penultimate start but underlined his unpredictable nature with a poor run last time at Wolverhampton.
Quirky bordering on an unreliable type who is still capable of winning races and put in a good shift over C&D last time (made favourite work hard). Followed up a good opening performance with a win last year; not out of this.
Below form when last seen on turf at Catterick in October he features off a very different mark here back on the AW (almost a stone lower). The 0-4 record on Fibresand doesn't impress though and this likely to be a tune-up for a return to turf.
Shock winner her last time getting off the mark at the 21st attempt showing improved form (blinkers, first-time, looking to be the catalyst). This requires more though off a 7lb higher mark though; others bring more solid form.
Ran as well as can be expected making her Fibresand debut last time (has ground to make up with Kath's Boy). Still 1lb out of the handicap and this is tougher than last time so not hard to say that others are more persuasive.
