Not seen for 17 months now and was beaten a long way over this C&D on that occasion, hard to make case for on first run back.
Inconsistent these days, scoring at Wolverhampton in January but not in the same form either run since and one to be wary of.
Made every yard to win a C&D nursery back in 2017, could be dangerous in this grade, as evidenced on penultimate run (third).
Returns from a break with plenty to prove, slowly out of the gates and eventually last home on two most recent sightings.
Career tally now stands at 1-51, yet to threaten in three 2019 starts and requires a leap of faith to forecast a turnaround now.
Long-standing maiden (0-36), though has shown ability to go close when twice-placed in this grade previously. May settle for similar role.
Comes here on the back of two solid runs at Chelmsford, latest in a handicap over 7f (third). Boasts credentials on that form.
Winless sequence stretches back to 2015, closing in on 30 runs with a victory. Hard to make a case for on these terms.
Lightly-raced sort, has scope for improvement but burst a blood vessel last time at Wolverhampton. In-form claimer a bonus in the saddle.
Winner at Wolverhampton in February, not as good in three starts since however. Drops in trip and claims if near best in this company.
Veteran, still capable of sound efforts when he's in the mood, though that wasn't the case last time at Chelmsford. Cheekpieces return now and not discounted.
13-race maiden with little in the way of positives from recent efforts, albeit when dealt relatively tough tasks. Easier to look elsewhere.
Just three starts so far, started 100-1 in novice contest over this C&D in November on most recent of those. Still early days however, dropped in grade.
