Has shown on a couple of occasions that this sort of mark looks feasible for his handicap debut, while the return to 1m could also bear fruit. Interesting from a decent draw.
C&D winner in November, when 9lb lower and ridden for the only time by Adam Kirby, who is booked elsewhere here. Didn't quite see out 1m2f last time, but that was respectable, and back in trip from 1lb lower, he is not ruled out.
Has shown some ability in three starts from 1m-1m4f, as well as handling this track. Returns from being gelded for handicap debut and could show up well.
Triple-figure odds for all three starts, but took a significant step forward last time out, when 3L fourth over C&D. Not best of draws but on a feasible mark for handicap debut if she can repeat that effort, while better would give her claims.
0-10. Back in better form over C&D last time, when staying on well to be 2L second. Could be more to come from him over this far, so not ruled out.
Showed more pluck in his first two starts than he has in three since. Not seen since September, gelded since, and returns from a stiff enough mark in first-time headgear. Market check.
Made minor improvements in each of three Wolverhampton runs. Since gelded, but looks harshly treated on handicap debut.
Showed some improvement on his last two starts, one of them over C&D, the other when winning at Wolverhampton (7f) last time from 2lb lower, for Michael Bell. Since cost 10,500gns and makes stable debut with genuine hat-trick claims.
Not surprising that he has been unable to get competitive in three starts over an inadequate 6f, but this trip is much more suitable for his handicap debut. Mark no giveaway, but interesting if supported.
Arrives on the back of very competitive efforts at both Wolverhampton (1m1½f) and Southwell (1m). Changes surface again, so has to prove he acts on this, but entitled to enter calculations.
Well held in all four starts, including on last month's handicap debut. Can only watch at present.
