Admirable performer who seems to go on any ground and won in impressive fashion at Doncaster on return in a competitive contest. New mark demands more but could be hard to peg back around here if he gets out in front.
Looked hugely progressive last year and held her own when tried in Listed class at Ayr when last seen. Season cut short and that's a concern on her return here given she's needed her seasonal returns in years gone by.
Won back-to-back races at Ripon last year, a course at which he has eight wins at. Has run well without winning on two starts here and race fit from his recent return on AW at Kempton; each-way claims.
Just two wins to his name and lost his form at the end of last season but has run well from higher marks than this before and he has some form on undulating tracks. Trainer a master with his sprinters and this one could go well with De Sousa on.
Very inconsistent and failed to back up a Chester win last year when well beaten in three subsequent starts. Has run okay in two starts here but perhaps a bit vulnerable from this mark away from his favourite track, Chester.
Gained a first win in 30 starts last time at Chelmsford when travelling well throughout. Usually thereabouts and has some useful form from higher handicap marks but his recent strike-rate tells its own story and probably vulnerable for win purposes.
Only has one win to his name, a maiden success at Ripon over this trip. Out of form on AW of late and needs plenty more on his return to turf here; hold up tactics not ideal over this C&D.
Won back-to-back races including a C&D success at the height of last summer but his profile has been patchy since. Looks vulnerable off this handicap mark at present.
Put together a good run of three wins in four starts last summer but signs the handicapper had caught up with her towards the end of the season and she's entitled to need the run on seasonal return here.
