Only win in 13 starts came over C&D last July for David O'Meara when running off 6lb lower mark. Makes debut for new yard and returns from six-month break and usually needs a few runs to find her form.
Scored here over 5f as a juvenile for John Butler and without a win since for various trainers. First start back for Butler and returns from wind surgery having run badly when favourite here last month. Risky but worth a market check.
In good form winning at Kempton and over C&D last time out off 2lb lower mark. Should make a bold bid for the hat-trick with good apprentice taking 5lb off for in-form yard.
Listed winner as a juvenile four years ago but hasn't won since. Has crashed down the weights though and showed signs of a return to form in two outings at Kempton in February. Could be weighted to stage a revival.
Rattled up Newcastle handicap hat-trick in November 2017 and popped up again there last November off 3lb lower mark. Has shown little of late off higher marks and finds it hard to score away from Gosforth Park.
Seven-time winner. most recently over 6f in Lingfield h'cap in December. Not beaten far when fourth in selling h'cap here last time and with yard in fine form a bold show cannot be ruled out.
Two wins to his name on turf but is 0-7 on AW and hans't been seen since finishing well down the field at Southwell in November. Hard to get excited about on evidence to date on this surface.
Speedy gelding who won over 5f at Newcastle in November. Shaped with promise on first run since back there last month but ability to see out this extra furlong is open to question.
Exceed And Excel gelding who has yet to score but ran OK on first AW start at Newcastle last month over 5f. May do better over this extra furlong and looks one of the livelier outsiders.
Yet to score in 18 races in Britain and Ireland but has gone close on numerous occasions. Made favourite when last seen at Kempton in October and interesting to see if there is market support for him again following break.
Two wins at Chelmsford this winter include last time out over 6f when running on well to win a shade cheekily off 5lb lower mark. Ran poorly on only previous visit here two years ago but is in fine form at present and may not be far away.
Scored by a length over 7f here three starts ago and found all sorts of trouble-in-running back here last time. Interesting that connections choose to drop him in trip and would be no surprise to see him figure.
