Nine-race winner who can usually be relied upon to run his race and probably found 1m4f to far on his latest start at this track. Better expected over this shorter trip, but looks on a high enough mark.
Only one win from 17 starts on the Flat, but has hit the frame in both races on the AW. Back on the level after disappointing over hurdles and is feasibly handicapped, albeit with something to prove.
Raced off 2lb higher when fair fifth of 10 over 1m at this venue last time. All six AW victories have been achieved at around 1m so has stamina to prove.
All seven career wins have been registered at Kempton and she got her head in front again at that track last month. Up 3lb and has to prove she is effective at this venue.
C&D winner in December and may have found 1m4f too far at Kempton last month. First appearance in a handicap and makes a good deal of appeal back at this distance on only his fourth start on the Flat.
Approaching the veteran stage, but holds his form well as he underlined when scoring over 1m at Chelmsford in January. Stays this longer distance, but latest effort was disappointing and he needs to bounce back.
Has been running with credit over hurdles, but has decent turf Flat form on his CV. Only his second start on the AW so has a few questions to answer.
Three AW wins to his credit, but none of them have been achieved beyond 1m. Behind Magic Mirror at Kempton last time and is not hard to oppose back up in distance.
Registered three wins over 1m and 1m2f at this track last year, but has not been quite the same force since off higher marks. Has been running over longer trips so no surprise to see him do better.
Only limited promise in three starts in novice company for David Simcock. Handicap debut and first run for leading Northern stable so well worth a check in the betting.
