Decent 12L third in a 1m2f novice race at Ripon (good-to-firm) in July. Struggled in two handicap starts however including over this trip the following month. Drops in grade on seasonal debut.
Five time winner including over an extended 1m1f at this venue. Out of form in two starts since joining this yard and now dangerously well handicapped. Market support would be notable.
11 race maiden was beaten 10L when eight of 14 over an extended 1m3f at Windsor (good) last month. Changed yards since and others hold stronger claims.
Beaten 7L when runner-up over an extended 1m5f in a maiden at Chelmsford in December. Held in a handicap subsequently and more needed on return from a break.
Useful horse on his day and registered a fair effort when finishing sixth over an extended 2m here two weeks ago. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained.
Returning from a break when beaten a nose over an extended 2m at Newcastle last month. Raised 3lb for that effort and useful jockey booked to ride in this contest.
Placed on heavy ground over 1m4f at Haydock in September 2017. Managed just two starts last year however and probably best watched on first start in nearly a year.
Good 1½L fourth in a C&D handicap at the end of January. Given a break since then and is one for the shortlist off a mark just 1lb higher than for his sole success.
Course winner placed on two of his last three starts including when third over this C&D last time out. Has won off this 1lb higher mark in the past and is worth a check in the market.
Held on all eight starts during 2018 and handicap mark falling as a result. Market support would be notable on seasonal reappearance for a shrewd stable.
C&D winner has struggled in three starts since finishing ½L third over this C&D in March. Needs to return to form if he is to figure in this event.
Well held in three starts since returning from well over 18 months off the track. Probably best watched having placed on just two of his ten previous AW starts.
Ten race maiden was beaten 80L in a 2m handicap at Lingfield last month on first start since wind surgery. Cheekpieces and tongue tie tried for the first time racing from 1lb out of the handicap.
