12 race maiden finished a good 1L second over an extended 1m1f here last time out. Tongue tie worn for the first time that day is retained and he is a notable runner dropping in distance.
Not beaten far when finishing fourth over this trip at Kempton on his penultimate outing. Below that form on fibresand subsequently and better expected on this occasion.
Winner of eight races including by a short-head over 7f here in March. Held in two subsequent outings and has placed over this distance in the past.
Maiden after seven starts and finished well held at Catterick (1m4f, soft) on latest start in October 2016. Dropping markedly in trip on stable debut following a lengthy absence.
C&D winner finished third over an extended 1m1f here on his penultimate start. Struggled dropping in distance here last time out however and needs to put that effort behind him to figure in this contest.
C&D winner improving with racing since returning from a break and ran well to finish third over this trip at Pontefract (good-to-firm) just over a month ago. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist on this occasion.
Victorious over an extended 1m1f here in December. Held in recent starts over that C&D however and interesting to see how she fares dropping in distance.
Fair effort when finishing fifth over an extended 1m1f here last month. Back down to his last winning mark and market support would be notable with cheekpieces tried for the first time.
Followed up a 1L victory over an extended 1m1f here with a ½L second in a 1m2f handicap at Lingfield at the end of March. Wide draw to overcome dropping in trip.
Put a below par effort behind her when a head second over this trip at Lingfield last time out. Raised 3lb for that effort and is worth a check in the market.
Soft ground likely to blame for poor effort over this trip at Haydock last time out. Poorly drawn on return to this venue.
C&D winner ran well when fourth over 7f at Chelmsford just over a month ago. Races off the same mark as when winning over 7f here last August.
