Five-time AW winner, has been struggling of late and didn't appear to take to the demands of this track in January on first experience. Comes here off a good effort at Wolverhampton in stronger grade, so may offer more this time.
Bought out of the Richard Hughes yard for 5,000gns and went close over 7f at Wolverhampton on stable debut. Fair run next time and likely didn't see out trip back at Wolverhampton this month. Feasibly weighted now.
Dead-heated at Kempton in January and has since run two solid races over that 6f trip at that venue and here. Worth a go over 7f on AW (stayed on turf) with regular 7lb claimer on board.
Just one win from 18 career runs, coming over 5f at Wolverhampton in November 2017. Last couple of runs have been over a mile and were fair effort, possible better suited dropping distance.
Sandown handicap winner over this trip in summer of 2017. Has knocked on the door both recent runs at Wolverhampton and Kempton over this trip, not getting clear run latest. Tongue-tie added and could have a say.
Landed a touch at Wolverhampton last March over this trip (9-4f) in Class 5 event, went well again after break at Kempton in June (neck second); has mostly toiled since but mark dipped below winning one and would be noted if positive in the betting.
11-race maiden under both codes for whom cheekpieces and a drop in trip prompted a big run over 1m2f here in January (neck second). Run well since at Wolverhampton but drop to 7f is puzzling.
Lawman gelding gained second career success over trip at Newbury (good to firm) having also won over C&D last February off a mark of 69. Well held over a mile here in November and off since. May need this return.
Went close over this trip at Chelmsford on second start back last month, and since done as well as might be expected in a pair of 5f sprints. Dropped 2lb and one to note going back up in distance.
Getting the hang of things after three runs for new trainer, not beaten far over this trip at Kempton latest having been held up. Could have more to offer if getting away well from promising draw.
Only two wins from 25 starts previously. Has joined new yard but far from certain stayer over this trip. Worth a check in betting however, given he has gone well fresh before. Hood added.
AW winner in Ireland and ran well over 7f at Dundalk when last spotted in the autumn. Has relocated since and feasibly weighted starting out for new trainer. Also capable off a break, so needs close scrutiny.
Without a win since December 2016. Huge disappointment last time but could improve as Hollie Doyle is back on board and has gone close over C&D from much higher marks.
Filly won over C&D in January and followed up here over a mile last month, still low mileage and no shame in defeat last time in conditions race at Chelmsford. May have more to offer back here.
