Would have needed the run making her debut for this yard over 6f at Chelmsford after seven months off the track. Slow away (as usual) on her most recent start; now off a career-low mark and merits consideration at this level.
This trip looked perfect for him when he showed improved form to get off the mark at Chelmsford in February off a 5lb lower mark. Made his turf debut last time (possible he wasn't in the same form); has to prove that he can produce his AW form on tur
First-time blinkers and a race run to suit were very much the catalysts behind her best effort of the season last time over 7f at Chelmsford. Nudged up 2lb for that effort she should still be able to make her mark and build on that last effort.
Mark continues to fall and although he was a little below form last time he can't be long before he takes advantage of the handicappers leniency. Cheekpieces now return in a bid to eke out some more progress and may not be far away.
Still looks unexposed and may be better judged on his last two starts of 2018 over 6f (looks well handicapped on those efforts). Made his seasonal return on Tapeta (friendless in the betting; ran no sort of face) over 6f last time; returns to 7f.
Form has an uneven profile to it and yet to show his best form for this yard (often starts slowly/races lazily). Went with little fluency last time on Fibresand; returns to turf trying 7f again, yet to convince over this trip.
Just the one win from 25 Flat runs and ran below form the last twice at Brighton over 7f. Needs to bounce back from those two outings and not one who makes immediate appeal even at this level with others more persuasive.
Another (like a few in this) with a rather modest win-to-run ratio (1-25) with the win coming on the AW at Lingfield over this trip. Never looked close to justifying favouritism on Fibresand last time (hampered); strike-rate isn't appealing.
It's now 23 starts since his last win and consequently he's tumbled in the weights (last win came off 74). Failing to produce form that will allow him to take advantage of the fall in the weights though; can only be watched.
His first run since leaving Hugo Palmer appeared to be needed over 7f at Chelmsford (finished well held). Best effort came over 1m so it may well be that we won't see any progress from him until he tries that trip again.
Veteran who bounced back to form over 6f on the Fibresand last time bringing to an end a long losing run; open to question if he can back this up. Will be aided by a strongly-run race but hasn't won on turf since August 2015.
Landed a gamble for his only win so far at Beverley last July on his last run for Nigel Tinkler over 3f further. Hasn't come close to repeating that form for this yard in five starts; this will be the shortest trip he's tried for a while.
