Had been in fair form prior to a couple of very weak efforts the last twice. Now 0-17 on the AW and needs to bounce back to very best to have a say here.
Previous C&D winner that also tends to go well at Southwell. Well held there the last twice and impossible to recommend on the back of those two laboured efforts.
Still a maiden after nine starts but didn't run too badly on first effort on the Fibresand at Southwell last time. Down another 1lb and a first win doesn't look to be too far away.
Goes well here and has won over this C&D. Likes to bowl along in the lead so you can put a line through the run last week as he missed the break and was never on terms. Well drawn again and dangerous if breaking better here.
Has showed much improved form of late to win back-to-back races over C&D. Well on top close home last time and gets to race off the same mark again here. Likely to be very hard to beat.
Had shown some steady improvement prior to disappointing at Newcastle (7f) on last start back in September 2018. Returns here from six months off and is entitled to need this run. Could be more to come.
Posted his best effort since moving into handicaps last time but ultimately still well held. Starts out for a new yard today and is down another 3lb. Needs to improve to win this.
Previous C&D winner who's last success came here over 7f in December. Still 1lb higher than for that last win and put in a pretty laboured effort last time. Draw not helpful and looks up against it.
Much improved efforts the last twice including when a clear second behind an easy winner at Kempton (7f) last time. Needs to build on that again but would have place claims if doing so.
Still a maiden after 12 starts and whilst she has shown enough to think she could win one of these, is not one to rely on. Well held at Southwell last time and needs a career best effort.
Not the most consistent type and yet to get the head in-front. Has run some fair races here though so not without a chance of getting in the frame if putting best foot forward.
