Good effort to finish second over C&D off this mark in November. Could not match that effort back on turf at Redcar later that month, but return to this venue should suit after his winter break.
Chelmsford winner at the start of the year, but has been unable to add to that success off higher marks since. Inching back down the weights to a mark off which he could be effective again.
Irish import who was having his first run for this stable when down the field at Doncaster last month. Scored on the AW at Dundalk in November so this surface could suit.
Won this race last year, but is without a win since. Boasts a fine record when fresh so looks a big threat on seasonal reappearance off fair mark.
Scored over 1m at this track in November, but struggled off 2lb higher on his return in January. Drop back to 7f should not be a problem, but better effort is needed.
Last seven races have been over C&D and he has won three of them. Career-high mark to contend with, but has to enter calculations.
Not at his best on turf at the end of last season, but probably disliked cut in the ground. Unplaced on only AW start so this may be a warm-up for his return to grass.
Defied long odds to score over C&D last month, overcoming trouble in running to beat Chosen World. Up 3lb, but has obvious claims if able to replicate that level of form.
Regular at this track and latest run when third of eight over 1m was a fair effort. Down 1lb, but little evidence to suggest this drop in trip is what he needs.
Scored over C&D in November, but was only fifth of 11 to Chosen World the following month. Not seen since and has to contend with the same handicap mark.
Stable companion of Testa Rossa who scored twice over 1m at this venue last month. Has gone up in the weights and has to cope with drop in distance so has a bit to prove.
Lightly-raced filly who ran well to finish second off a 4lb lower mark at Wolverhampton in October, but was not so good on turf next time. Has each-way prospects if back on song.
Placed on all three starts in novice company, latterly on the AW at Kempton. Opening handicap mark is fair and he is one to keep an eye on in the betting.
