Off the mark at the sixth attempt and second start for current trainer when beating Champs De Reves by a neck over C&D nine days ago. Has a 5lb penalty to shoulder, but is on the upgrade and respected.
Only one success in 29 starts, but did shape encouragingly at Wolverhampton recently. Not really one for win purposes.
First run for this trainer since leaving Marcus Tregoning's stable when just denied by Simbirsk over C&D. Obvious chance on 5lb better terms if able to build on that display.
Showed she likes this venue when decent second over 1m3f last time. Up 1lb and drop in trip is not ideal, but she has to be feared given the record of her trainer.
Beaten a long way when last seen in a handicap hurdle at Exeter in November. Has placed form at this venue, but he is probably best watched on his return to action.
Won a four-runner handicap at Chelmsford last year, but has failed to score since and efforts this season have not suggested a return to winning ways is imminent. Fairly weighted, though.
Bits of promise in novice events, but was well beaten on handicap debut at Lingfield when last seen in September. Down 2lb, but needs to up her game.
Visored for the first time when scoring at Lingfield in March, but went up 5lb and struggled at Windsor last month. The headgear is fitted again and he needs to bounce back.
