Has been on a downward spiral for a while but is starting to look attractively handicapped now. Finished last of six at Southwell last time but not beaten far and blinkers now go on. A return to form would be no surprise.
A wonderful servant over the years that has won 10 of 50 starts on the AW. Knocking on the door at Wolverhampton a few times this year and is almost sure to run his race once again.
Form tailed off a little at the back end of last summer in Ireland. Starts life for a new yard today on the back of a four-month break. On a fair mark from a good draw and market check very much needed.
Slowly returning to form and ran well here over C&D three weeks ago. Down another 1lb and wouldn't need to improve on that form much to play a major role here.
Backed up some solid efforts elsewhere when winning well here over 5f three weeks ago. This trip is no problem and is sure to give it another good go from just 2lb higher.
Sole win came on turf for Roger Charlton and failed to add to that in four runs for Marco Botti. Having just second start for new yard today on the back of a wind operation and a four-month break. Player.
Good winner over 1m½f at Wolverhampton two starts back. Won again here over 7f last time but was disqualified for weighing in light. Claims once again.
There are one or two pieces of form that would give her a squeak but others have stronger claims here and she is set for a minor role once more.
Has dropped right down the weights but hasn't looked like taking advantage at all. Races from well out of the weights here and looks up against it.
