Returned from almost 18-months off to score on his reappearance at Newbury (5f, soft) in April, making all. Has shown his best on testing ground, so further rain no problem. Claims.
Enjoyed a productive 2018, winning four times over this trip. Not at that level of form in two runs this term, but this is more his level and no surprise to see him go well. Acts on any ground.
Recorded two Listed wins last autumn on testing ground, so the recent softening of conditions look ideal. Also a C&D winner. Can come on for her reappearance and looks a contender.
Relishes bottomless ground and won an Ayr Listed race on it last September. Gelded after last season and took step back in right direction last time, but needs to raise his game again.
Well placed to win 5-12. Sees out 6f and acts on soft (unraced on heavy). Can't rule her out, but needs to significantly better he last two runs of last season at this level.
Won on both turf (good) and AW in France over 6f-6½f. Appeared to handle soft in Listed Nottingham contest last time. Still open to improvement, and needs to find some to win today.
Close second in this grade in a fillies' contest at Nottingham (6f, soft) last month. This is tougher, but can't rule her out of the frame.
11-4 on debut, when winning a Newcastle novice event (5f, AW) last month. Pitched in much deeper for her turf debut, and interesting to see what the market makes of her chance.
