Yet to win on turf (has two AW handicaps to his name) but has run some creditable races on the surface including last time over C&D (faces similar conditions today). May not have been best placed last time; still of interest off last winning mark.
Dropped down to 6f for her qualifying run here in testing conditions; twice run over 7f (in need of experience on both occasions). Now makes her handicap debut over the longest trip she's tried; not especially well weighted but worth a market check.
Withdrawn on soft ground when last an intended runner he was a staying on fourth in a Musselburgh 1m1f handicap the time before (stayed on well). Could do with being smarter away from the stalls; bred to be better than this mark.
First run for this yard last time came on the unforgiving Fibresand surface and she offered little having previously only shown modest form for Karl Burke. Beaten some 49L on that occasion it's stretching the imagination to see her winning this.
Handicap newcomer who will need to find a real shot of improvement to be successful in this sphere. Did hint at a little ability last time and handicaps will give him more chance but for now he's best watched.
Stable have just started to tick and he showed last time when chasing home a subsequent winner on his AW debut that he had a future in handicaps. Now back on turf off the same mark he's worth a second glance if he can build on that run.
Made her handicap debut on Fibresand (1m) but failed to improve for being switched into this sphere although it's early days with her yet (in good hands). Best effort so far came at 7f so trip/ground are doubts here; others more persuasive.
Offered very little on handicap/seasonal debut over 7f here finishing a remote last of 10 beaten 21L. Had looked the type to flourish in handicaps and there may be more to come yet although she's untested on going this testing.
Not one to go overboard about but there have been clear signs of progress in her two handicap starts so far producing a career-best when runner-up at Wetherby last time (1m). Pushed up 3lb for that run; respected if she handles the deep ground.
Failed to show much on his three runs so far (quickly dispatched from Charlie Appleby's yard after one run); tried over 1m4f last time in a first-time tongue-tie. Now down in trip for handicap debut (looks limited); stable are in good form.
Her two handicap runs have shown some gradual progress on her prior form handling a soft surface well last time at Hamilton over a furlong further. Failed to get near the front two but allowed in off the same mark; not ruled out on current form.
Form is no better than poor having run respectably the last twice albeit in selling company and now has a career record that reads 0-12. Should run her race but has been beaten in handicaps before and others offer stronger claims.
Six starts into her career and so far she has offered little that would make you think she could win this. Fared poorly last time out in first-time blinkers (headgear removed now) and takes a big step up in trip; huge turnaround in form needed.
Well held in novice races over 6f-7f and fared no better when stepped up to 1m4f on his handicap debut at Beverley. Never travelled well on that occasion (always behind); little hope of any further impact back at 1m.
Form so far can only be described as poor with her recent form looking more regressive than ever. Tailed off over 1m1f on heavy ground here last time it's hard to raise much enthusiasm for her chance on the present evidence.
