Triple course winner, including over this trip. Went close over C&D again when last seen in September, when 1lb lower. Has twice won when fresh, so entitled to respect, although stable not fully firing just yet.
Has improved with each start so far, coming good at the fourth attempt on her handicap debut at Musselburgh (1m4f, good) when last seen in September. Up 7lb for that. Will find this tougher, but can't rule her out.
Soft ground winner here (1m) last season, when 1lb lower. Added to that when upped to 1m4f (good to firm) at Musselburgh last time out. Unexposed, so 3lb rise still gives her claims here.
Dual winner last year (1m1f/1m4f, both good to firm), the latter coming when 3lb lower. Proved very competitive from this or slightly higher marks after that, and after a decent reappearance effort, he can go close again.
Scored over a similar trip at Carlisle (good to firm) last summer, when 5lb lower. Three subsequent runs from this mark saw him held, and needs to find improvement on stable debut if he is to add another win.
Placed in four of his nine starts but remains a maiden. Well treated based on the form of his handicap debut last July at Ayr and his Newcastle AW run from January, but more recent efforts give him a bit to prove.
1-14, that success being over C&D (good to firm) last July, when 10lb lower. Ran well on two of his three subsequent returns to the track, but probably one to watch today if his record when fresh is any indicator.
Has earned half of her four career wins at this venue, both over further. Losing run now at 15, yet to win when fresh, and stable quiet, so despite being able to make a case for her from this mark, she may be best watched this time.
Scored here over 1m4f (good to soft) last summer, when 8lb lower and has since won on AW from 1lb lower. Returned to turf to go close when 1lb higher at Musselburgh last month. Claims.
Yet to be placed in 11 attempts in this code. Badly out of sorts over hurdles in recent months. Impossible to recommended him from 4lb 'wrong'.
Course winner (1m) in 2017, when 3lb higher. Has since won over hurdles, but not easy to fancy on all form in either code since then.
