Made bright start to 2019, winner at Chelmsford and over C&D (hands and heels apprentice race) from first four starts. Folded very tamely since in stronger race at Kempton, possible can bounce back here.
Was off for 18-months and has been building steadily in five runs since returning. Decent effort over C&D (third) in apprentice race won by Navajo Star early this month and another sound run at Kempton in stronger grade since.
Dutch Art gelding has hit 10-years-old now and wasn't seeing his races out through 2018. Yet to win beyond 1m5f and, while presence of Oisin Murphy is a plus, only of interest back from a break should market be with him.
Six-time winner (from 18 runs) including in a 2m handicap at Kempton penultimate start when returning from a layoff. Didn't give his running behind Navajo Star (tailed off) over this C&D since, can bounce back from that.
Was returning from a 948-day absence at Kempton this month (1m4f, 25-1) when keeping on to be sixth of eight, beaten only 2L. Stays this trip if building on that run, though doesn't have anything in hand from this mark.
Son of Sea The Stars, reached a mark in the mid-120s over hurdles after arriving from France when winning couple of races for John Ferguson in 2015. Poor on sole AW outing at Kempton in 2017 and back from more than a year off here.
Took to the AW in flying style when bolting in over 1m6f at Wolverhampton in October and runner-up a week later under penalty (dropped in trip). Unexposed over this trip and worth noted on return form winter break.
Daughter of Pour Moi whose efforts thus far in both codes have yielded one win in 20 attempts, coming at Doncaster (1m6½f, good; 25-1) in June last year (rated 61). Unplaced in five AW starts before now.
Dual AW winner at Wolverhampton (one turf success) whose last victory came at that track in a 2m event at the end of 2017. Efforts last year less than inspiring and finished last of five at Wolverhampton last month on return (1m6f; 40-1).
Nathaniel gelding was returning from a break when winning by 2L in a 13-runner 2m handicap at Kempton early last month. Has twice finished second over C&D since (including behind Navajo Star) and no reason not to be involved again when it matters.
Was having his first run for this trainer since leaving the stable of Ed De Giles when a tailed-off last of six at Southwell (1m6f, AW) last month and no improvement since at Kempton (2m, AW; 66-1). Best watched at the moment.
Prominent racer, scored at the fifth time of asking when clinging on grimly having led at the 3f pole over C&D last month, downed tools very rapidly since at Kempton however and that was a worry, needs to bounce back.
