Dual 7f Southwell scorer who has been in good form in defeat there recently. Held from this mark there last time. Seemed to handle Polytrack okay at Chelmsford, but does have a bit to prove on it here.
Sole AW success came over this trip at Lingfield last April, when 3lb higher. Went very close from this mark at Chelmsford in January. Can't rule her out, but her form here has to be a concern.
Scored on fast ground at Pontefract (1m) last July, when with Mick Channon and 2lb higher. Took step back in right direction on second start for this trainer/after gelding operation. 4lb lower and in a tongue-tie, he is interesting.
Arrives seeking a hat-trick after class 7 successes both at Newcastle and over C&D last time. Carries a penalty after that decisive effort, and should give a very good account, but has to step up in grade to win again.
Former Sir Michael Stoute inmate who is 0-9 under both codes and has not yet shown enough to suggest he can win this, even after another 3lb drop.
Ran up a hat-trick over 7f last month, and that was initiated here. Not beaten far from this mark at Chelmsford last time when back up to 1m and taking a grip. Can't rule out another win here if she can settle better.
Went close over C&D in October before scoring at Newcastle (1m) next time, when 5lb lower. Appeared to have been exposed back here last time, so has a bit to prove now returning from a break.
