Promising individual who got off the mark in a Wolverhampton minor event at just short of today's trip. Not really had the race run to suit in her two attempts in handicaps (needs a strong pace); looks capable of more returning to turf; shortlisted
Course winner who showed that she was in decent form last time with a second at Doncaster (1m4f, good/firm) that run close to the best of her form (bumped into an unexposed winner). Strong gallop will be needed at this shorter trip; solid contender.
Not quite fully exposed in handicaps as yet and run well in both her starts this year over this sort of trip. Seen to good advantage last time (needs to settle a little better); will be worth a try over 1m4f given how she ran last time.
Last two Flat starts of 2018 may well have been a clue as to why she was given a wind op over the winter; ran poorly in both. Given her performances over 1m it looks strange to see her going up rather than down in trip; others appeal more.
Failed to live up to expectations on her handicap debut although she shouldn't be judged to harshly on that one effort and remains with potential. Returns from a winter off down to 1m2f off a 1lb lower mark; still makes some appeal.
Failed to make any impact over hurdles for Dan Skelton even after a wind op and now returns to the Flat for a new yard. Has won on the AW (1m4f) but given her form over timber she's best watched here against some promising types.
Regular over the winter on the AW but a career record of 1-24 is unlikely to cut it in this company although she has run with credit of late (mainly on Fibresand). Will find conditions very different here and others present more persuasive cases.
Lightly-raced sort who made his handicap debut last time dropping in trip from his qualifying runs and backed at long odds. Never really involved on that occasion though (7f) and should benefit from this increased trip.
Yet to really fire this season faring no better than before in first-time cheekpieces last time out. Very limited form on turf on her CV and hard to make a case for her in this which could turn out to be a warm little heat.
