New Approach colt out of a dam who won UAE 1000 Guineas. Split horses rated 92 and 78 on debut so makes some appeal off this mark. Not knocked about by this rider on recent return to action after a year off and represents a yard that do well here.
In fine fettle at the end of the last turf season, winning handicaps at Carlisle and Chester on soft ground at around this trip. Has a modest AW record and possible that he is being prepared for a big run in the early weeks of the turf season.
10-race maiden for whom cheekpieces and a drop in trip prompted a big run last time. The third has won since and the winner has gone close off a higher mark so the form has credibility.
Scored over C&D in lower grade last August. Would have needed latest run which was over an inadequate distance, but for now he looks poorly handicapped in comparison to others and the draw is unhelpful.
22-race maiden who has been producing consistent enough performances lately to say he should be thereabouts again. However, he is a tricky ride and others appeal more for win purposes.
Landed back to back races in 2016 but has drawn a blank in 16 starts since. On a good mark and rider good value for his claim, but he remains a difficult looking ride.
Sprang a 40/1 surprise, despite being hard to settle, on stable debut before his exuberance got the better of him last time. Hood employed this time.
Trainer has done well with some wayward performers but appears to have her work cut out with this character. Visor tried this time but best watched until promising more.
Dual AW winner who has been placed on both occasions he has raced at this venue. Mark has dipped below 70 for the first time but last month's stable debut did not promise much.
Lurking on an attractive mark at present and his latest effort was more encouraging. Stable have gone seven weeks without a winner and this will be his first venture beyond a mile. Probably one to monitor in the market.
Usually manages to win at least one race a year with his 2018 success resulting in a 9L romp at Musselburgh off the same mark as today. Has won here three times, including twice at this trip, but he did fail to fulfil market expectations last time.
Low mileage maiden has shown some promise whilst also looking in need of some help from the handicapper. Gets some respite here and now a question of how ready she is after a break. Jockey booking looks positive so worth a market check.
