Winless in seven starts on AW and up in trip for turf debut here. Related to some winners over similar trips so this could suit and looks like an interesting runner here.
Showed nothing in his first three career starts but has been better on AW this winter prior to a disappointing run last time out. Too keen at Wolverhampton last time but worth forgiving that effort and more to come this season.
Well beaten on his first two starts but stuck to his task well enough when fourth of nine at Lingfield last time. Up in trip for handicap debut and one to note in the market here.
Winless in five starts and didn't take to Fibresand when last seen. Makes turf debut and wasn't without market support last time so may do better here on just his sixth career start.
Well beaten in a trio of starts for Charlie Hills and only minor improvement in two starts in handicap company for this yard. Returns to turf with a wide draw and others preferred here.
Won his final start for Michael Bell at Wolverhampton (7f). Showed nothing on debut for this yard at Kempton last time and looks opposable upped in trip here. Wears first-time cheekpieces.
Well beaten on all four of her starts as a juvenile at 50/1 or bigger each time and looks up against on handicap debut in this field on her seasonal bow.
Showed nothing in three starts in maiden company last year at 100/1 or bigger. Markedly up in trip now on handicap debut but hard to fancy unless the market strongly suggests otherwise.
Yet to win in six starts but has shown improved form in handicaps over the winter. Not disgraced at Lingfield last time out and may improve for the return to turf here.
Starting to improve now he's been stepped up in trip and put up his best career yet when third of 10 at Chelmsford last time out. Dropped another 2lb by the handicapper and not without each-way claims.
Showed that a close up third at Southwell was no fluke when filling the same spot at Wolverhampton last time. Left on the same handicap mark here and not ruled out if the return to turf can eke out a little improvement.
Showed a bit of ability at Southwell in January but still hasn't won in eight starts and well beaten on each of his last three outings. Wide draw not ideal and others hold stronger claims.
