Off the mark at the third attempt in maiden/novice company when making AW debut. Was impressive too as he turned over an odds-on favourite with the minimum of fuss. Makes handicap debut off fair mark and should have plenty of success at this level.
Only managed to find the progressive Cardano too good when runner-up at Nottingham (1m; soft) last time. Has definitely improved since switched to handicaps and he is a major player off just a 1lb higher mark.
More was to be expected when he was a below-par fourth at Yarmouth (1m; good to firm) on his latest start. Sent off the 7-4F then but should benefit for the return to this grade/surface.
Made an underwhelming handicap debut at Newmarket (1m; good to firm) last time. 1lb lower for that effort and still early days. This is probably the weakest race she has contested in her career so far, so interesting to see how she fares.
Registered a couple of AW victories earlier in the year but hasn't done so well since switched to handicaps. Mark has dropped 6lb as a result of that but this is a better contest than when he was a disappointing fourth at Southwell (7f; standard).
Did well to plug on for sixth when suffering trouble coming out of the stalls which left him in last place on handicap debut at Windsor (1m; good to firm). Has each-way claims off the same mark but may want stepped up to 1m2f soon.
Progressive in three runs on the AW which culminated in a C&D win in March. Made disappointing handicap/turf debut when fifth of six at Redcar (1m; good to firm). Dropped 2lb or that effort and could have place claims if putting that behind him.
Four-race maiden who improved upon what he had previously shown in maidens when runner-up on handicap debut at Nottingham (1m; good to firm). That was also his seasonal return so he should improve a good bit from that and is a player up 4lb.
Hasn't improved for the switch to handicaps and hasn't made an appearance on the AW since finishing well-beaten at this track last year. Ruled out with confidence in current form and is readily opposed.
Hasn't cut much ice at all in his career so far, and mark has slid 18lbs in just four runs since switched to handicaps. Impossible to fancy in a race where many others have much more solid claims.
