Fair seasonal reappearance display when fifth of 15 over 6f at Windsor last month. Most runs have been over 7f and 1m so this drop in distance looks something of an experiment.
Back-to-back 5f wins on the AW at Wolverhampton early in the year, but has drawn a blank in five starts since, latterly in first-time cheekpieces which are retained. Down the field on most recent turf outing.
First run of the season when last of 15 at Windsor last month. Should have come on for the run and is 2lb lower, but is not an obvious contender.
Only one win in 25 runs, but did run well to be third of 11 over this C&D in September. Competes off 5lb lower and a hood is fitted for the first time.
Two average displays since joining current stable from Paul D'Arcy's yard. Plenty to prove for the time being despite falling handicap mark. Maybe first-time blinkers will help.
Scored over 6f at Wolverhampton in January, but last two AW displays have been disappointing. Switches back to turf on which he has a record of 0-26.
Not disgraced in three runs since scoring over this C&D last summer. Has quite a lengthy absence to overcome, but is feasibly weighted if ready to go on a track she likes.
First of two successive C&D successes when winning this race last year. Subsequent displays were a bit hit and miss, but she is 7lb lower than for the second of those wins last season and cannot be discounted with underfoot conditions to suit.
Stable companion of Mrs Todd who won over this C&D in September. Has not been at her best on the AW this year, but this return to turf and reduced mark may spark a revival.
Blinkered for the first time when neck second of 13 over 6f at Winsdor nine days ago. No surprise to see the headgear retained and he has obvious prospects off this lowly mark.
Still a maiden after nine attempts, but has run with credit over a variety of distances on the AW this year. Interesting dropped in trip on turf debut.
Had Dalness Express behind when third of 11 over 6f at Kempton in March.. Retains a good deal of ability despite his age and is one to consider on his return to turf.
