Last win came off 6lb higher mark but hasn't shown the best of form of late. Clearly on the right side of the handicapper but has a point to prove at present, although exciting young jockey on board helps the cause.
Just 1-21 to date, that win came over 6f. Caught close home here over that trip last time and drop back certainly worth a chance off same mark
Yard in good form at present and this mare sprang a 20/1 surprise last time out over C&D. 4lb higher mark makes life tougher but another good display looks on the cards.
Won over C&D in March last year but hasn't stuck in nine starts to date for current handler. Poor effort last time out at Southwell can be forgiven but general profile suggests he may find life tough once again.
Won twice over 6f here last year, including on seasonal return, so 201-day absence isn't too much of a concern. Begins this campaign off 8lb higher mark than first of those wins so needs to improve.
Won on racecourse bow at Wolverhampton in June 2017 but no successes since then. Eased total of 27lb over last two years and ran best race for long time when third last week at Wolverhampton. May not be far away.
Out of luck since November 2016 despite tumbling handicap mark. 2lb lower than latest 6f run at Lingfield and may be better suited by this trip. Good apprentice claims further 5lb.
Both career wins have come at Wolverhampton but ran poorly on both previous visits to this track. Returns from three-month break and on balance others make more appeal.
Only win came in 6f maiden at this track in October 2016 and has been badly out of form in five starts this winter. Dropped 22lb during that period but still looks to have plenty on his plate.
All five career wins have come on turf and has yet to reach a place in four previous attempts on AW surfaces. Returns from more than six month break and expected to be better for the outing.
Frustrating gelding who is 0-27 but was beaten less than a length over C&D last time out when sent off favourite. On balance is a risky proposition.
44-race maiden at distances up to the extended mile and takes big drop back in trip after failing to land a blow over 7f last time. Very much a bookies friend.
