Won 2-3 early on last year (both over 5f) but lost his way since going handicapping. Drops into claiming company for the first time and entitled to take care of these on the ratings. Trip may not be his optimum.
Finished third twice this year most recently off a mark of 69 over 7f at Lingfield on the AW last month. Turf debut and wouldn't be wise to overlook readily in this company. Big chance on form.
Form so far makes him look very ordinary. Drops to claiming company now but not hard to suggest he needs the first-time cheekpieces to have significant effect in order to have a claim.
Five-race maiden, gone off three-figure prices in all starts to this point. 100-1 in novice event over C&D last month and unable to go pace when push came to shove; lots of improvement demanded eased into this grade.
Swiss Spirit filly, minor promise shown last year for Gary Moore on turf and not disgraced in Chepstow handicap (6f, good) this month back on grass. Blinkers tried and rates one of the more likely sorts in this modest contest.
Dick Turpin filly makes little appeal on pedigree and she was tailed off on debut at Windsor (1m, good; 100-1) this month on debut in novice company. Hood she wore then is discarded but she'll need to improve dramatically to figure.
