C&D winner of a maiden and the runner-up won next time. Had less use made of her when disappointing on turf next time, but could easily bounce back under one of the more experienced riders.
Has had a good winter around here despite the handicapper's attentions. Soft ground to blame for latest effort but others preferred and he has an inexperienced rider on board.
C&D winner whose last two victories have come off marks of 61. Narrowly failed on last month's comeback and benefits from the services of a talented apprentice who is 6-22 in past two weeks including a Group 3 winner on Saturday.
Triple C&D winner has seen her ratings fall dramatically following a sequence of poor results. Blinkers have seen some improvement but she still has plenty to find.
Has had inexperienced riders on board in four maidens around here. Took a step forward last time and now makes handicap debut under one of the more accomplished riders in this contest.
Promised better on last month's handicap debut here over 7f when challenging widest of all. Didn't appreciate softer ground last time but that has earned her a 2lb drop. Rates a threat under a relative veteran of 985 rides.
Winner of three of her 17 starts over C&D with the last of those wins coming over 12 months ago off an 11lb higher mark. Market likely to highlight if the Sir Prancelot mare is coming back to form.
Both career victories have come on testing ground and she is yet to make the frame here. Nevertheless, there were plenty of positives in this month's return over C&D when it looked as though the run was needed.
Eight-race maiden who has looked overwhelmed in a series of dismal efforts at this venue since November. Still looking no nearer to a breakthrough success.
Showed a bit more ability in first-time blinkers a month ago but that form still does not look good enough to worry her rivals.
