Flopped on her return, but back to her best when winning a 1m handicap at Yarmouth last time from Lunar Deity. Groud was fast there, and does need to show she can cope in the mud, for all she still commands respect.
Has a patchy profile, but latest sub-par run at Newcastle is east enough to forgive in isolation. Needs to step up on the overall level of her form of late, but handles track and soft ground, so not dismissed entirely.
Landed a hefty gamble at Wolverhampton last July, and although he has been disappointing twice since, he remains on a potentially favourable mark, and could easily bounce back after a break. Market will tell a story.
Best effort last season when a close fifth over C&D off 6lb higher. Clearly well treated if he can find his best form, but other efforts last year were less inspiring, and he is a risky proposition.
Failed to run last year, and well beaten on return, but looked a different animal when winning easily despite a slipped saddle at Yarmouth on Thursday. Only 2lb higher despite a penalty, and claims are there for all to see.
Dropping to a very lenient rating but it's almost two years since her last win and her determination might be suspect these days. That said, she fared best of those drawn high over C&D last time, and can't be taken lightly off reduced mark.
Won 7f handicaps at Southwell in March and April, and although she is fairly treated on those efforts, the longer trip and different surface are both imponderables.
Still a maiden, and while he has tumbled in the weights, he continues to show little on the track, and is hard to fancy as a result.
Not at the top of her game, and nor is she an easy ride, but she hinted at a revival when fourth of 10 at Kempton last time, and is certainly on a feasible mark if she deigns to put it all in.
Yet to win but a consistent sort and ran up to his best when ½L second of 7 to Zodiakos in a apprentice handicap at Haydock (1m, heavy) last time. Will be there or thereabouts with a repeat, and no reason why he won't give his running.
Ran creditably when third over C&D on penultimate start, and possible to forgive a rare poor run at Wolverhampton given his overall record. Jockey 2-2 for yard here in recent seasons, and he's an interesting outsider all told.
Badly out of sorts at present, and again well beaten in an apprentice handicap over C&D last time. Interesting jockey booked, but nothing else to cling onto.
Generally soundly beaten in recent times, but got back on track when 1¼L second of 9 to Majeste at Carlisle last time, seeming to relish the test on heavy ground. Remains to be seen if she can back that up.
Won this race last year off the same mark, but not much to cheer about in the interim, tending to finish weakly after making the running. Not disgraced at Carlisle last time, but still needs to take a significant step forward.
