Course winner and running well in defeat of late including when 6L sixth in a big field 1m2f handicap at Leicester (good-to-firm) last time out. Interesting runner stepping up in trip and down in grade.
Disappointing in two starts since finishing runner-up over 1m2f at Chelmsford just over a month ago. Races off a mark 13lb lower than when winning at Lingfield (1m2f) in June last year. Has won at this venue in the past.
Handicap mark is falling following some moderate efforts this year. Has won off a much higher mark here in the past and stable can boast a 33% strike-rate (2/6) in recent weeks.
Well held in all five starts to date and probably best watched on first start for this yard having had wind surgery earlier this year.
C&D winner put a below par effort behind him when finishing 4L third over C&D last time out. Races off a 1lb lower mark here and is worth a check in the market.
Struggled in two outings since joining this yard. Handicap mark is falling as a result and market support would be notable on this occasion.
Course winner placed on two of her last three starts including when runner-up to an in form rival over C&D last time out. Races off the same mark here and is one for the shortlist in this contest.
Maiden after five starts and stepping up in trip having finished well beaten in two handicap starts so far. Others hold stronger claims.
Ten race maiden was beaten just 1¾L when finishing fourth over 1m6f here last month. Drop in trip unlikely to inconvenience too much and is interesting in this event.
Course winner finished eighth on all three starts this campaign including in first time blinkers (retained) over 1m at Southwell earlier this month. Has run well over this trip in the past.
Has won here in the past and in good form last month winning twice including over 1m2f in a classified contest at Chelmsford last time out.. Top jockey up racing off a mark 3lb higher than for his latest handicap success.
Beaten 16L when sixth in a 1m4f handicap at Kempton at the end of November. Has won over C&D in the past but probably best watched on seasonal debut.
