Fair effort in finishing fifth over this trip at Leicester (good-to-firm) last time out. Handicap mark is gradually coming down and he races off a mark 1lb lower than for his latest victory.
C&D winner finished 2L when finishing fifth over this trip here last month. Has won off higher marks in the past but is vulnerable to less exposed rivals.
C&D winner finished runner-up on his last two starts most recently over 1m at Brighton (good-to-firm) last month. Neck second over this C&D prior to that and is one for the shortlist despite a wide draw.
Completed a C&D double when winning by a neck from Sharp Operator here early last month. Given a break since and is one to note following a 2lb rise in the weights.
Made a winning debut for this yard when victorious by a head in a handicap over an extended 1m at Wolverhampton a month ago. Raised 4lb for that success and has won here in the past.
Returning from a break when finishing sixth over this trip at Newcastle at the end of last month. Interesting to see how she fares in this contest.
Making her seasonal debut when finishing 11L 12th of 14 over 1m at Yarmouth (good) recently. Probably best watched on this occasion.
Ran well to finish 1¾L fourth in a handicap over an extended 1m at Nottingham (soft) earlier this month. Has run well over an extended 1m1f in the past.
C&D winner placed on first two starts for this yard including when runner-up over C&D in January. Well held at Kempton subsequently and interesting on return from a break.
Well held in four starts since returning from a break. Drops in distance having finished 14L seventh over 1m4f at Wolverhampton last week.
Followed up a classified success over C&D with a 2L third upped to 1m4f at Wolverhampton ten days ago. One to note off a mark 3lb higher than when winning at Kempton (1m3f) last month.
Returned to form with a neck second to Muraaqeb in a classified contest over C&D at the end of last month. Worth a check in the market in this event.
34 race maiden was beaten 14L when finishing fourth in a 1m4f handicap at Wolverhampton last time out. Likely to find a few too good once more.
Struggled on handicap debut at Lingfield (1m4f) in May last year and making his first start since when finishing well held in a classified event at Kempton (1m3f) earlier this month. Others hold stronger claims.
Ten race maiden finished a well held 12th of 13 in a 1m4f handicap at Lingfield on stable debut in February. Drops in trip with tongue and cheekpieces tried for the first time.
