17:35 Newbury Sat 13 April 2019
Having only his fourth start when scoring for the second time at Wolverhampton in January. Has been brought along slowly by his leading trainer and is capable of more improvement.
Successful at Windsor and Nottingham last summer, but was not at his best in the autumn. Likely to be better for his winter break, but looks a shade high in the weights.
Won twice in three starts when trained by Kevin Ryan and was having his first run for this stable when creditable sixth of 12 in valuable Goodwood handicap last summer. Gelded since, he makes his seasonal reappearance with improvement on the cards.
Landed a Newmarket handicap in October, but failed to add to that success in four subsequent AW outings. Should be happier back on turf and is not too harshly treated.
Made good start to his career when trained by Sir Michael Stoute, but form tailed off and he tries his luck for a new stable. Handicapper has been slow to relent, but change of scenery may have helped.
Dual AW winner last summer and was not disgraced on return to action at Newcastle last month. Turf record not quite so good so others make more appeal.
Successful in a Salisbury handicap when last sighted 11 months ago. Has gone up 4lb and has her long absence to overcome, but she is one to consider.
Won a novice event at Haydock in the autumn, but return to action at Saint-Cloud last month was underwhelming. Bit to prove now she is handicapping.
Has not been able to get his head in front since winning this race last year. Still 5lb higher than for that success, but has underfoot conditions to suit.
Won one of his seven races when trained by Roger Charlton and starts out for a new handler in a hot handicap. Others make more appeal.
Scored on first start for current trainer at Windsor last May and is only 2lb higher. One to bear in mind given his ability to go well fresh.
Has been in good form on the AW since the turn of the year. Reverts to turf and record of two unplaced efforts in as many starts on grass has to be a negative.
Best form with give in the ground so any drying out of the going will be against him. Won on seasonal reappearance last year, but was racing off a 7lb lower mark.
Went close when second over C&D in the autumn and returns off only 1b higher. Lightly raced so open to improvement and has solid each-way claims.
Sandown winner last summer, but struggled off higher marks in subsequent starts. Back down to that winning rating, however, and will relish any give underfoot.
Well held on last three starts last season, but was in good form before that and reappears on a workable mark. Stays further than this so the expected good gallop should suit.
Clear signs of ability in three maiden/novice contests. Handicap debut in a competitive race, but is certainly one to note in the betting.
Enjoyed his share of success when trained by James Given, but things didn't go according to plan on first start for new handler last month. Leniently treated if returning to something near his best.
