Consistent but is still 9lb above his last winning mark; though the rider's claim helps negate that burden this time. Still needs to be at his very best though.
Won a Goodwood maiden last May and was then pitched out of his depth at Royal Ascot. Only seen once since and has plenty to prove after a poor run at Wolverhampton in January. Difficult to asses without market support.
Not much to find to reverse recent form with Beleaguerment and possible the first-time blinkers will spark a revival. Yet to race on this surface though.
Won a novice stakes at Wolverhampton on her penultimate start but was well held when upped to 6f for her handicap debut last time out. Not seen out since September and has a bit to prove now.
Held her form well in maidens and novice events before winning at class 2 conditions race on the AW last August. Well beaten on handicap debut afterwards and may need this on her first start for six months.
Won with a bit up her sleeve on handicap debut at Kempton last month and has to be respected from just a 4lb higher mark this time. Good chance of following up now she's proved herself capable of handling a polytrack surface.
Placed in all three starts so far and handed a very workable mark for her handicap debut. Off since October but represents a bang-in-form yard so merits serious consideration in a modest race.
Well beaten in all three starts so far and has plenty of improvement to find on debut in a handicap. Others much more appealing.
Of modest ability and probably best watched on AW debut and first run since September. Plenty to prove.
