Making his 22nd appearance at this track and has won here four times in the past. Not as good in previous three runs but has bounced back in the past and could threaten to get involved if recapturing the form of his second here in September.
Thriving at the moment and has proved the last twice he can do it on turf. Not disgraced when third in a Class 5 last time (1m; good), and is a major player on his return to this company.
Only just held on at Lingfield when winning over further (1m2f; standard) three starts ago. Not gone on since then and he is turned out quickly after weakening to finish fifth of six runners at Ayr on first run over 1m for some time.
One of two representatives for Tony Carroll. Has good form in higher grade events than this (not disgraced in a couple of Class 4 races last summer) and is an interesting contender starting out for new yard.
Tends to run well without winning, and is subsequently still a maiden after 17 runs. Respectable effort last time in a competitive handicap at Yarmouth (1m; good), but likely to find one or two too good again.
Not beaten far last time when third in a Class 5 at Nottingham (1m 1/2f; soft). That was on soft and her win over C&D was also achieved with give in the ground. More reliable than most in this field though which gives her fair claims.
Well-fancied and duly obliged on seasonal return (9-4f) at Brighton (1m; good to firm). Handicapper reacted leniently for that (raised only 2lb) and holds a strong chance of going in again.
Helmet-filly who is still a maiden after nine runs. Finished in midfield in each of her last three runs and mark looks an attractive one now. Possesses enough ability to be considered a player.
40-1 C&D winner at this track last season in similar conditions (1m; firm). In good form at the backend of last season. However, previous two efforts have been well below-par. Headgear returns (not worn on reappearance).
Has gone well here in the past and is a C&D winner. Reappearance effort was fair (1m; good to firm) and holds each-way claims on the back of that.
Recent runs leave a lot to be desired. Makes first appearance on turf for over a year and has never raced on the forecast firmer ground. Others preferred.
Cannot be recommended on the basis of previous efforts. Beaten a long way on seasonal bow when 17th of 18 runners at Salisbury (6f; good to firm).
