Course winner over 1m who looks badly out of sorts at the moment (ran poorly over 1m4f here last time). Usually leads but often finds little when challenged; has a poor win-to-run ratio; best watched for now.
Modest maiden although she has shaped better than the bare result of late; not seen to best effect last time (without a clear run). Can be slowly way but can't be left out of the equation here despite having something to find at the weights.
One of three C&D winners in the field; in good form at the back end of 2018 winning three handicaps at up to an extended 1m1f. More than likely to have won last time out had he not blown the start (not a one off); candidate if he gets away on terms.
Returning from a significant absence he was lightly-raced last year (seen just five times); all those runs coming here over 7f-1m. Scored last January over C&D in handicap company but wasn't in much form when last seen; no great record fresh.
Best to put a line through her last start where nothing went right over 7f at Wolverhampton; better judged on her win over the same C&D last December. A repeat of that run would see her go close in this and she's included in calculations.
Unreliable sort who has won here but whose form remains more out than in; ran poorly last time over 6f at Southwell. Would have a chance on his best form but can't be relied upon to produce that these days.
Made her stable debut last time and took a step back in the right direction taking advantage of a reduced mark. Raced rather freely over 1m here last time (finished fourth); not had much racing, remains to be seen if she can build on her last run.
Maiden who ran one of his better races when last seen in October finishing fifth in a Redcar maiden over 7f on soft ground. Been tried over a variety of trips (only once over 7f); back from a break plus a wind op; worth noting in the market.
Unexposed type who whilst he hasn't shown much so far probably hasn't had the scenario where he was likely to. Has something to find at the weights and needs further progress on what we have seen so far.
Handicap form is only modest and failed to win last year from seven starts; offered little when last seen on turf. Now returns from a wind op with a fair bit to prove off the back of a long break; best watched in this scenario.
One of just two three-year-olds she turned in a career-best last time when recording her second win over 7f at Southwell. All her AW form is on Fibresand so she has to prove she can operate on Tapeta; clear pick on form.
Only modest form to her name so far over a variety of trips; she may well have needed the run last time her first on Fibresand. Now makes her Tapeta debut but hard to give her a serious chance on what she's shown so far.
