Placed on all three starts at two and making his first start since wind surgery and being gelded when finishing fifth in a 1m event at Newcastle on handicap debut last time out. Remains open to improvement.
Well beaten on handicap debut last October and lost her action when virtually pulled up over 1m2f at Beverley (good-to-firm) on seasonal debut last month. Interesting dropping in distance.
Registered his first turf win when victorious over 1m2f at Wetherby (good-to-soft) recently. Carries a 6lb penalty for that victory and interesting to see how he performs down in trip.
Maiden after six starts and struggled in both starts since joining this stable. Yard in good form of late (3/13) and worth a check in the market down in distance.
Ended 2018 with a victory over 1m at Southwell in December. Struggled at Newcastle on seasonal debut in March and more needed on return to turf following a break.
Successful off this mark over 1m5f at Ayr (good-to-firm) in July last year. Not beaten far over an extended 1m4f and 1m6f in two starts at Musselburgh this campaign. Drop in trip not certain to suit.
Seven time winner including in a 16 runner 7f handicap at Thirsk (good) just under three weeks ago. One to note following a 4lb rise in the weights having won over this trip in the past.
Fair effort in finishing sixth over this C&D on good-to-firm ground on stable and seasonal reappearance earlier this month. Worth a check in the market.
Beaten 10L when third over this trip at Pontefract (good-to-firm) on stable debut last August. Held at Carlisle (1m, soft) subsequently and likely to improve for this seasonal debut.
Out of form since finishing runner-up over 7f at Musselburgh (good) last August and races off a mark 2lb lower than when winning at Thirsk (7f, good) in July last year.
Ran well to finish third in a 1m3f handicap on good-to-firm ground here when making his seasonal debut 12 days ago. Races off the same mark here and is interesting dropping in distance having won here in the past.
Dropping in distance when finishing a disappointing sixth of nine over 1m1f at Musselburgh (good-to-firm) just over a fortnight ago. Others make more appeal.
