Won over 1m2f at Bath last month but was never a factor when sent out quickly afterwards; more needed over this new trip.
Latest start franked when the winner went in again on Sunday, and this in-form gelding has to merit consideration despite being on a career highest mark. He's still open to improvement on turf and has solid place claims at least.
Been around a few yards recently and does appear to be better on the AW or over jumps these days. Below par in two AW starts for his current yard and difficult to make a case out for him this time.
High Chaparral gelding that has scope to improve now he tackles this trip for the first time; both starts this terms have created the impression his turn isn't too far way. Dangerous to underestimate from the same mark as when a good second latest.
Won twice with cut in the ground at Haydock last September and very possible he needed the run on his return at Newbury last month. This is a drop in class and he's certainly worth a betting check for that reason alone.
Won over 2m at Chepstow on his penultimate start but was below expectations in the follow up bid at Nottingham latest; up 3lb here and more to do. (Yard won this in 2017, so a betting check is still advised.)
Stable won this three times in the last ten years but, on pedigree, this filly makes limited appeal to cope with this step up in trip. Poor effort on her reappearance needs to be bettered by some way.
Form has hit the buffers lately and he's been well beaten in both starts this season. Hard to recommend.
Still a maiden and looks opposable after a poor run back over this trip latest. Others look more appealing despite the plunging handicap mark.
Won on the AW from a 1lb lower mark (in this grade) in December but has been beaten in two weak events since. Well handicapped but yet to win away from a synthetic surface and has a bit to find.
Won from a 2lb lower mark at Beverley last May but soon lost his way afterwards; been off since September and probably safe to leave out of the betting plans this time.
Knows what to do when he gets his head in front but is reintroduced to racing on turf at a late stage; his ability to cope with the surface has to be taken on trust. Being 5lb above his recent AW win also makes the case for opposing bit stronger.
Low grade handicapper whose form has been on slide for quite some time; opposable as he faces a very stiff test on these terms.
