Losing run stretches back to July 2016 and now 8lb lower than last win. Disappointing on last two runs last year and needs to bounce back for season debut following wind surgery.
Last two wins came over this C&D back in 2017 and now 9lb lower. Disappointing on both starts this year and much more required.
Remains 6lb higher than sole win. Returned at Wolverhampton with promise following a 335-day absence but well below that at Yarmouth. Hard to be confident in with best form on the AW.
Best form outside Ireland has come here and 4lb lower than last C&D success. Has tended to need the run in the past but remains potentially well handicapped if getting preferred quick ground.
Bust a blood vessel when pulled-up on last start in February. Just 2lb higher than when winning over this C&D in August but may be best watched for now.
First run since June 2018 with both wins and best form coming at Bath. Returns on a good mark but likely to need the run following such an absence.
Both wins came on the AW for George Margarson and while going close on debut for new yard, has been very poor the last twice. Questions to answer back on turf.
Just 1lb higher than both wins and has returned with two solid efforts following a 475-day absence. Drop back in trip a positive while any rain would help.
On a competitive mark and just faded late over 6f here last start. Drop in trip a plus if getting quicker ground.. Should be competitive.
Winner over 6f here but equally as effective at this distance. May need the run on first run since October and remains high in the weights.
Sole victory in nine starts came over 6f at Wolverhampton on debut nearly two years ago. Held in recent times including on seasonal debut and a bit to prove back on turf.
Fared better over 6f here last start but still well below career-best form and got to set a slow tempo so may have been flattered. Potentially well-handicapped but this is tougher still.
May need the run on this first run since October and ran poorly twice when last seen. 2lb out of the handicap and others preferred.
Goes well here but lost his way for Roger Ingram and Suzi Best last year and on latest run in January. Switches stable again and remains best watched from 4lb out of the handicap.
Lost her way since heavy ground win last year and while given a chance by the handicapper is hard to fancy from 5lb out of the handicap.
